    Clanton Lands on His Cleats at 790 After Being Fired from 1560

    All-in-all, it didn't end up so bad after all. Nearly two weeks ago, Adam Clanton was fired from his position at 1560 AM as the station shuffled its lineup yet again.

    Why Can't Houston Media Actually Employ People From Houston?

    You probably don't know who Nick Mathews and Randy Harvey are. But as of next month, they'll be the new sports editor and new sports columnist at the Houston Chronicle.
