Dallas Stars President and CEO Jim Lites, in conjunction with Sportsradio 1310 AM/96.7 FM The Ticket Program Director Jeff Catlin, announced today the creation of Stars Sunday, a weekly radio program devoted to the Dallas Stars. The show will premiere this Sunday, May 3, airing from Noon to 1:00 pm CT.
"For the first time ever, fans will now be able to tune into The Ticket for a unique and in-depth radio program dedicated to Stars hockey," Lites said. "We are tremendously excited to build upon our partnership with The Ticket and continuing to offer the Metroplex the most complete Stars coverage on the radio year-round."
Stars Sunday will air from 11:00 am to Noon every Sunday through the end of the summer. The show will be hosted by Bruce LeVine and Owen Newkirk, who serve as hosts of the pregame, intermission and postgame shows for all Dallas Stars broadcasts on The Ticket. LeVine is in his fifth year as a member of the Dallas Stars radio broadcast team, while Newkirk just completed his first season with the team. The weekly, one-hour show will focus on a wide array of Stars-related topics along with in-depth analysis and commentary.
"There is a growing demand for Stars content as the team continues to rise," Catlin said. "Owen and Bruce's work on the pregame, intermission and postgame shows has made it an essential part of the fan experience, and we're thrilled to have them further our coverage of the Dallas Stars."
For the last six seasons, The Ticket has served as the radio home for Dallas Stars hockey, broadcasting all regular season and postseason contests. Additionally, the station also broadcasts pregame, intermission and postgame programming providing Metroplex sports fans with the most complete Stars coverage on the radio.
