Longtime CUMULUS Country KSCS/DALLAS-FT. WORTH morning host TERRY DORSEY will retire after more than 40 years in radio, with the last 26 years as morning host for KSCS. DORSEY’s last day on the air at KSCS will be DECEMBER 17th, after which he and his wife, CLAUDIA, will retire to ILLINOIS to be close to family.
Dorsey started his radio career in the late 60s at WFKY/FRANKFORT, KY. He then made stops in RICHMOND, IN; COLORADO SPRINGS; and DAYTON, before arriving in DALLAS in 1980 to do mornings on KPLX. DORSEY moved across town to KSCS in JULY, 1988 and has been a fixture on KSCS and DALLAS radio ever since.
Co-Host MARK “HAWKEYE” LOUIS said, "There are people in the metroplex that have never heard DALLAS radio without TERRY DORSEY, and I've worked with him almost all of my career. I'm in shock in along with everyone else. I wish him a wonderful retirement!"
OM J.R. SCHUMANN said, "What an honor it's been to work with a broadcast giant like TERRY DORSEY. This has been a milestone in my career, and I'm fortunate for having been able to attach my name to part of his legendary career. I think I can speak for most people when I say DALLAS radio won't be the same without TERRY's voice in the morning! I wish him nothing but the absolute best in his retirement!"
RVP/Market Mgr. DAN BENNETT said, "TERRY's contribution to DALLAS/FORT WORTH radio is monumental. He is an Iconic figure in our industry and we are all better because TERRY DORSEY was in it.”
