Overview

The Ticket: Full Disclosure chronicles the colorful history of the radio sports talk giant that has solidly dominated the Arbitron ratings in Dallas-Fort Worth for the last 15 years. The Dallas Cowboys' flagship station and its hosts have been profiled hundreds of times by local and national media, are local celebrities in their own rights and nationally renowned for their no-holds-barred brand of humorous, and sometimes serious, guy talk that includes a mix of the hosts' own daily personal minutia, politics, entertainment news, women's anatomies and, of course, sports. Tens of thousands of listeners, men and women, tune their dials to 1310-AM or 104.1-FM, and stream online at theticket.com, all hours of the day to get their Ticket fix. The station's unique mix of real content and fake "bits" has created an unprecedented legion of loyal listeners, making the Marconi award-winning station a nationally coveted ratings juggernaut. On the occasion of The Ticket's 15th anniversary, Ticketheads finally have a book revealing all the history and behind-the-scenes hijinks of the station they have come to obsess over. The true story of how Mike Rhyner, Craig Miller, George Dunham and Greg Williams evolved from press box yuk monkeys to forming the core of one of the nation's most popular radio stations is a must-read for every "good, strong P1."
