Lex & Terry Out At KEGL As Clear Channel Retools the Morning Show's Format
Longtime listeners of KEGL-FM (97.1) will notice something different tomorrow: Lex Staley and Terry Jaymes, otherwise known as Lex & Terry, will no longer hold down the morning-drive slot. That's the word from Clear Channel's Dallas market manager, who tells Unfair Park that nighttime host Cindy Scull will take over the morning show "on an interim basis, focusing on music, till we find a replacement."
Freeman says the twosome can still be heard over their Web site and will continue to broadcast from the station's facilities. But in a memo he sent to KEGL staff today, and forwarded to Unfair Park moments ago, Freeman says, "We have made the decision to take mornings in a different direction." Freeman tells Unfair Park that direction will involve playing more music: "They're primarily talk, and I feel like we can do better with a different direction." In his memo, Freeman writes: "On a personal note, I wish them the best of luck with the show and thank them for their commitment in Dallas."
