Add HOUSTON CHRONICLE columnist RICHARD JUSTICE to the roster of personalities set for the launch of the new Sports format at KILE-A/HOUSTON later this SUMMER. The CHRONICLE's DAVID BARRON reports that JUSTICE will handle 10a-Noon CT on the new "THE GAME."
JUSTICE, who says he turned down offers from format leader CBS Sports KILT-A, where he was a regular guest, CLEAR CHANNEL Sports KBME-A, and CUMULUS Sports KFNC to take the KILE show, joining former KILT host JOHN GRANATO, fellow CHRONICLE columnist KEN HOFFMAN, JIM ROME "Smackoff" champion SEAN PENDERGAST, and college football analyst JOHN HARRIS in the lineup under new owner DAVID GOW. CBS SPORTS college football analyst and former HOUSTON OILERS player SPENCER TILLMAN will serve as imaging voice and will guest on the station's shows.
Meanwhile, BARRON also reports that lawyers for former KILT morning host LANCE ZIERLEIN are requesting arbitration over the noncompete clause that is keeping him from taking another job in the market. KILT is paying ZIERLEIN under the terms of his contract, but ZIERLEIN's attorneys are looking to free ZIERLEIN to work elsewhere before the NOVEMBER 30 expiration of the KILT deal.
