I guessed 1560 KILE The Game on 6/11, Imus back? and KPRC does some cutting

Richard Justice is going to 1560 KILE says David Barron:

Chronicle columnist Richard Justice will join Houston's newest sports talk station, KILE (1560 AM) when it launches as "The Game" later this summer.

Justice says he will host a show from 10 a.m. to noon after considering and turning down opportunities to join the other three sports talk stations in the market. His show will follow John Granato's morning drive show and precede Chronicle columnist Ken Hoffman's afternoon show.

John Harris and Sean Pendergast will work afternoon drive, and Spencer Tillman will voice promos and intros and contribute to Granato's show, said KILE owner David Gow.


Here is what I am amazed about. On June 11th, I wrote a post about naming 1560 KILE. My first choice for a station name was "The Game." Look above at what Barron said the name of the station will be, "The Game." That is amazing! I promise no one told me that would be the name either.

This sports radio thing is weird because it has Chronicle writers reporting on and breaking news about each other. This is some real investigative journalism.

In other news
, it looks like Don Imus will be back on the radio. Could it be CBS Radio? I'm not sure that I care.

I heard about this one a few days ago and now KPRC Local 2 announces it is cutting half of its 4pm newscast. Extra will take that half hour over.

On an NBC related note, the network says it is funny on Thursday despite the ratings. It must not be as must see as it used to. Hey, but I do love The Office. CONTACT: Leave me a Houston or Texas media news tip | COMMENT: Click to leave your thoughts on this post here
