CBS RADIO VP of Strategic Programming and Sports WXYT-A-F (97.1 THE TICKET)/DETROIT PD TOM BIGBY adds duties as Operations Manager at sister Sports KRLD-F (105.3 THE FAN)/DALLAS, effective MARCH 30. BIGBY will work with PD GAVIN SPITTLE to run the station, which flipped from Talk earlier this year. BIGBY worked in the DALLAS market at Oldies KLUV and News-Talk KRLD-A, and was formerly PD at Sports WIP-A/PHILADELPHIA.
"We are very excited to add TOM to our already great team here in DALLAS/FT, WORTH, and look forward to his contribution in making 105.3 THE FAN an even greater sports station," said GM DAVID HENRY. "We have the best sports signal in NORTH TEXAS, and along with our partnerships with TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY and the TEXAS RANGERS, we’re in a great position to be the leader in sports radio."
"TOM's vision and outstanding leadership skills quickly helped establish 97.1 THE TICKET," said DETROIT Market Manager DEB KENYON. "I have no doubt he will have a similar impact in the Dallas market. TOM is truly a difference maker."
"Building a great sports station in one of America’s great sports cities is a challenge I am looking forward to," said BIGBY. "Ask anyone who knows me and they will attest to my passion for this format. I bring that same enthusiasm to DALLAS/FT, WORTH and look forward to working with GAVIN SPITTLE to build a station second to none."
