CBS Radio Makes KRLD All-News

NewsRadio 1080 KRLD unveils a new line-up Monday to become the one and only full-time news, traffic, weather and information station in Dallas/Fort Worth.  The new line-up: 
  • Ernie Brown and Mike Rogers 5am-9am
  • Mitch Carr and Scott Braddock 9am-1pm
  • David Rancken and Bonnie Petrie 1pm-4pm
  • Will Sterrett and Alice Rios 4pm-8pm
According to an website posting, these trusted radio voices will bring you traffic and weather together on the 8’s, sports at :15 and :45 and business news at :25 and :55 past every hour from 5am-8pm Monday through Friday on-air and online at  The station’s programming can also be heard on a variety of mobile devices including the iPhone, iPad and select Blackberry units.

“It’s no secret that our listeners count on KRLD to keep them informed,” said Bruce Gilbert, Vice President of News/Talk/Sports Programming, and CBS RADIO Dallas.  “We believe this new lineup gives us the depth to deliver on those expectations in a personable and professional manner, because when news affects North Texas we take our commitment to inform the community very seriously.”

50,000-watt KRLD is the source for local news, talk and information in Dallas/Fort Worth and is the flagship of the Texas Rangers Radio Network and the Texas State Networks. TSN, the Texas State Networks, serves over 130 radio affiliates in two time zones with news, talk and sports programs.  KRLD and TSN are owned and operated by CBS RADIO, one of the largest major-market radio operators in the United States.

Talker Jay McFarland announced Friday morning that he will be leaving KRLD/1080 AM to go to a station in Salt Lake City, adding that the decision was partly family-related (his mother isn't doing well).
