Lance Zierlein and Adam Clanton to replace Adam Wexler and Matt Jackson on 790 KBME

Adam Wexler and Matt Jackson off SportsTalk 790 KBME

Multiple reports say that SportsTalk 790 KBME morning show hosts Adam Wexler and Matt Jackson are off the station.

UPDATE 8/4/2013

The station's website has no mention of the duo who moved to the Clear Channel in 2009 after working at CBS' SportsRadio 610 KILT.

David Barron reports Lance Zierlein and Adam Clanton will replace Wexler and Jackson. He also writes the station will add Jay Mohr Sports to the schedule. This shifts the schedule for the rest of the day.

CultureMap adds the Wexler/Jackson show had ratings that were less than Mike & Mike In The Morning on ESPN 97.5 KFNC and SportsRadio 610 KILT's morning show with Nick Wright and John Lopez.

Houston Media Watch offers its opinion on this development here.

As for the 790 website, it now lists Zierlein and Clanton in the 6-9am slot.*
