Changes are coming to WCCB’s evening magazine show “The Edge” (10:35 p.m., Channel 18), beginning with a talent swap.

Rance Adams, who had co-hosted for the last two years, left after Tuesday’s show. He said his contract was not renewed.

“It’s all good,” Adams said Wednesday. “It was time for some change. They’re looking to do some new things. They’ve been super awesome to me. I loved every minute of it.”

Adams joined “The Edge” in the spring of 2013 and co-hosted for a year beside Cassiday Proctor, a morning personality at WNKS-FM (“Kiss” 95.1). After Proctor, who moved to a job in Atlanta early this year, left to focus on her radio career, Adams co-hosted with news anchor Morgan Fogarty.

Jim White, WCCB general manager, said there are some minor changes afoot for “The Edge,” but not a major overhaul. He said the station is considering what it wants to do about a hosting change and viewers may see some of the candidates on the air in coming weeks.

Fogarty is expected to stay with “The Edge,” he said, and WCCB hopes to have its new lineup in place before she leaves on maternity leave this summer. Fogarty is expecting her second child in June.

Two long-time members of “The Edge” have already left the show this year, Robert Wilder – better known as the street interviewer called Man on the Edge – and producer Reid Sartin.

Adams, 42, who worked in Dallas television before joining WCCB, said he likes Charlotte and hopes to remain here with his wife and 7-year-old daughter.
