Houston Radio: Sports KILT Revamps Line-Up

Sports radio KILT 610 AM has announced its most significant lineup shuffle in at least four years Wednesday, moving nighttime host Paul Gallant to mornings and rehiring former host Fred Davis while parting ways with midday host Cody Stoots.

Gallant, who has worked the evening shift for KILT since 2014, will now work morning drive (6-10 a.m.) alongside incumbents Mike Meltser and Seth Payne.

With Stoots’ departure from the midday (10 a.m.-2 p.m.) show with John Lopez, Lopez will be paired with Landry Locker, the current morning show producer, and Fred Davis, who returns to KILT after working for the station from 2012 until January 2014.

Sean Pendergast, Rich Lord and Ted Johnson will continue to host from 2-6 p.m., and the Houston Texans hour will continue from 6 to 7 p.m. The station did not announce programming plans for the 7-10 p.m. time slot now hosted by Gallant.

The lineup changes are effective Tuesday, said Sarah Frazier, market manager for Entercom’s Houston radio stations.

“Part of remaining on top is continuing to evolve with the needs of the Houston audience,” Frazier said in a statement. “I'm excited about the energy that Paul will bring to mornings and Fred and Landry will bring to middays.”

According to the Houston Chronicle, KILT has steadily lost ground in the men 25-54 demographic in recent months. None of its three 6 a.m.-6 p.m. shows led its time slot in the most recent Nielsen Audio ratings book.
