D/FW Radio: After 13-Years, Jody Dean To EXIT KLUV Morning Show

KLUV Morning Show: David Rancken, Rebekah Black and Jody Dean
Jody Dean, who has been a fixture on D/FW radio and television since the ‘70s, announced Monday morning that he will step down as morning-show host on KLUV 98.7 FM, effective Friday.

But he stressed that he is not retiring, reports the Star-Telegram.

“In fact I’m not even leaving KLUV,” Dean said during his show. “However, I am leaving this morning show. After 13 years, this will be my last week as part of it. Friday will be my last day. Thursday, you’ll meet my replacement, and Friday morning I’ll have a few more things to say about all this.”

Nothing was said about any changes for Rebekah Black and David Rancken, the other main cast members of “Jody Dean and the Morning Team.”

September has been an unusually busy month in DFW morning radio. At the beginning of the month, “Smooth R&B” KRNB 105.7 FM dropped the “Steve Harvey Morning Show”; his replacement, the locally based “The Morning Rush” with comedian Rudy Rush and former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member Claudia Jordan, started Monday.

And Nathan Fast, who came to DFW in early 2017 to become the new morning-show host at KVIL 103.7 FM, only to get blown out in a KVIL format change 10 months later, took over as morning-show host on KPLX 99.5 FM “The Wolf” on Sept. 17.
