Entercom “Sports Radio 610” KILT Houston unveils a new on-air lineup with the departure of longtime afternoon co-host Rich Lord. A new afternoon show, “Clint & Kamla,” comprising Clint Stoerner and Rick Kamla, will take over afternoons, effective July 22. Lord’s former afternoon host Sean Pendergrast will co-host mornings with Seth Payne as the re-christened “Payne and Pendergrast” show.
Stoerner has been serving as a weekly contributor and fill-in host on “SportsRadio 610” since 2018. Kamla segues to KILT from sports sister “92.9 The Game” WZGC Atlanta, where he hosted middays.
“Clint and Rick are the perfect pair to bring informative and clear-cut opinions to the Houston listener,” Senior VP/Market Manager Sarah Frazier said in a release. “As a native Houstonian, Clint has a natural connection with the audience and a distinct delivery and southern charm. Rick brings a national platform with instant recognition from his years at NBA TV to the station, and his passion for sports will be evident instantly. We are equally excited to provide the Houston sports community with a revamped weekday lineup that they can connect with to and from work on a daily basis.”
Regarding the departure of Lord, Frazier added, “Rich did an incredible job for nearly two and a half decades on SportsRadio 610. As one of the first announcers on Houston’s first all-sports talk station, he has played an instrumental role in building this heritage station and will always be an integral part of its legacy. We’re thankful for his work ethic and contributions to the station over the years and wish him the best. He will always be a treasured player of SportsRadio 610.”
Added Lord, “My time at SportsRadio 610 has been the most rewarding, fulfilling and satisfying experience of my professional life. I’ll forever be grateful to Dickie Rosenfeld for bringing me aboard in 1995. My time here has meant so much to me and my family that the biggest emotion that I feel right now is gratitude. I came here in my 30s, I’m leaving in my 60s. It doesn’t get much better than that.”
Pendergrast being added to mornings follows the June exit of co-host Paul Gallant after he and the station could not come to terms on a new contract. It’s unclear what role Mike Melster will have with the station; he remained with the “Mad Radio” morning show after Gallant’s departure. Melster and Payne previously hosted middays before being moved to mornings in May 2016.
The new “SportsRadio 610” lineup is as follows:
“Payne and Pendergast” (6-10am)
“In The Loop” (10am-2pm)
“Clint and Kamla” (2-6pm)
“Texans All Access” (6-7pm)
“The Six Pack with Matthew Jarecki” (7-9pm)
Matthew Jarecki (9-11pm)
