Rich Lord has left the building at SportsRadio 610 (KILT-AM) in Houston. He said his time at the station has been the most rewarding, fulfilling, and satisfying experience of his 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.”
Market Manager Sarah Frazier said Lord did an incredible job for nearly two-and-a-half decades. “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.”
Morning co-host Mike Meltser is also no longer with the station. He had been with KILT since 2010. There was no goodbye quote from Meltser in the press release.
Entercom has hired Clint Stoerner and Rick Kamla as afternoon drive hosts taking over for Lord and Sean Pendergast. Pendergast is moving to mornings and will team up with Seth Payne filling the vacated seat of Meltser.
Clint Stoerner was previously a weekly contributor and fill-in host on SportsRadio 610 since 2018. Prior to joining Entercom, Stoerner was a studio analyst for 103.7 The Buzz in Little Rock, AR, and the SEC Network. Rick Kamla was recently the midday host for sister station 92.9 The Game (WZGC-FM) in Atlanta. Kamla also previously served as a studio host and play-by-play announcer for NBA TV, a role he held since 2003.
