CBS Radio’s 105.3 The Fan in Dallas announced its new afternoon drivers are locals Ben Rogers and Jeff “Skin” Wade. The Ben and Skin Show will premiere Monday, 5/13 and will be heard from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. FAN fans can listen on air at 105.3 FM, online at CBSDFW.com and on their mobile devices via the Radio.com app.
Ben and Skin are lifelong friends who grew up together rooting for the Dallas-Fort Worth teams. They first appeared on-air together in halftime segments on KSTR 49’s Dallas Mavericks television broadcasts. They went on to host KTCK-AM’s Mavs postgame radio show as well as a Saturday morning program on the station, where they also filled in for vacationing weekday shows. They became full-time radio hosts in 2008, when they moved The Ben and Skin show to weekdays on what was then known as “Live 105.3 fm.” For the past three years, they have hosted the 9 a.m. to noon shift on ESPN Radio’s KESN-FM in Dallas-Fort Worth.
The duo prides itself on creatively blending sports and humor into their show, as well as engaging their listeners, both on the air and via social media.
