Cumulus Media DFW’s Sportsradio 96.7 FM/1310 AM The Ticket Kicks Off Year-Long Celebration of 30 Legendary Years This Friday at 30th Birthday Party at House of Blues in Dallas

DALLAS, TX – January 24, 2024 — Cumulus Media (NASDAQ: CMLS) announces that Sportsradio 96.7 FM and 1310 AM The Ticket/KTCK, Dallas-Fort Worth’s first all-sports station, will kick off a year-long celebration of its 30th birthday at a sold-out 30th Birthday Party this Friday, January 26th, at House of Blues in Dallas.

First airing the morning of January 24, 1994, The Ticket has established itself as DFW’s Sports station of record and is a four-time winner of the NAB Marconi Award, capturing the coveted honor in 2007, 2013, 2017, and 2021. The Marconi Award recognizes the Best All-Sports Station in the U.S.

All four of The Ticket’s daily shows (The Musers, The Invasion, The Sweet Spot, and The Hardline) consistently sit at the top of the Metroplex radio ratings.

In addition to generating high ratings and garnering national awards, The Ticket is very involved in the local community and has raised over $12 million dollars for local non-profit organizations and causes.

Jeff Catlin, Program Director, Sportsradio 96.7 FM and 1310 AM The Ticket, said: “The relationship we have with our listeners over the past three decades is special. Nobody takes that for granted and everyone at The Ticket works extremely hard to honor it every day.”

The Ticket’s 30th Birthday Party will be followed by the two-day Ticketstock event on February 23rd and 24th at the Plano Event Center. The 30th Birthday celebration will continue with special events and promotions to be announced throughout the year.
