KTCK (Sportsradio 1310 and 96.7 FM The Ticket) Dallas moves longtime talk host Bob Sturm from middays on The Ticket to co-host the station's afternoon show "The Hardline" with current afternoon host Corby Davidson. Sturm steps up to the role following the retirement of former co-host Mike Rhyner, while Danny Balis continues in his post as show producer. "The Hardline" airs weekdays from 3-7pm CT.

Sturm joined the Ticket in 1999 and has been the co-host of "BaD Radio" weekdays from 12-3pm with co-host Dan McDowell since 2000. "BaD Radio" recently completed its 5000th show.

In addition to the afternoon drive move, current "BaD Radio" producer Jake Kemp has been promoted and will now co-host "BaD Radio" with Dan McDowell. McDowell and Kemp have been with The Ticket since 2000 and 2009, respectively.

Cumulus Dallas/Houston Regional VP and Dallas Market Manager Dan Bennett said, "Bob Sturm has earned the trust and following from our listeners for over 20 years and is one of the finest sports talk talents in America. This move made perfect sense and we are excited to entertain our listeners with the new afternoon drive team of Bob Sturm and Corby Davidson, and with Jake Kemp and Dan McDowell for BaD Radio in middays."

Sturm noted, "Our station lost an absolute icon in Mike Rhyner to retirement and we must all pull together to bridge that gap. I am honored to join forces with The Hardline's Corby Davidson and Danny Balis to see what we can dream up from 3-7pm and we can't wait to get to our mighty challenge. Dan McDowell and Jake Kemp will make a fantastic duo themselves from Noon to 3. Dan McDowell is the closest friend I might ever find in this business and I owe him an immeasurable debt."

Davidson added, "I am very excited to have Bob Sturm join us from 3 to 7. I don't need to rattle off his credentials; he is money, plain and simple. He's been a great friend over the past two decades and now I can't wait for him to add to the wildly successful tradition of The Hardline on the Ticket. We are going to have a blast."
