It serves as the flagship station of the Dallas Mavericks and features two local weekday shows, JaM Session with Jean-Jacques Taylor and Matt McClearin, and Dennis and Company with Steve Dennis. Tim Cowlishaw was previously part of the afternoon program but exited the station in late July.
According to sources, ESPN is expected to discontinue local weekday shows, making the network’s national programming a heavier part of the station’s schedule. How Mavericks games will be executed with little infrastructure remains to be seen. The possibility of a future sale of the station can’t be ruled out.
