The BaD Radio Show (short for Bob and Dan) is a midday radio program on Dallas, Texas radio station KTCK, “1310AM, The Ticket”. The show is hosted by Bob Sturm, Dan McDowell, and Donovan Lewis, airing Monday through Friday from 12pm to 3pm. Bob and Dan had their contract come up on 6/23/13 and almost went SG and bailed to 105.3FM, The FAN, but wised up and stayed put because Sportsradio 1310 The Ticket is the best place to be even at a lower salary. Listener and co-host outrage, concern, and pleading contributed to the decision by Bob and Dan to stay with Cumulus Media at 1310AM. Donovan Lewis was notably hosed in the deal as the departure of his 2 co-hosts would have left him in good shape to have his own show or at least co-host one in the vacant slot.

Bob Sturm

Originally from Wisconsin, Bob graduated from Liberty University and started his broadcasting career in Lynchburg, Virginia. He eventually came to Dallas in 1998, where he became the host of The Ticket’s night time show. He is affectionately referred to as “The Sturminator.” Bob is often called a “sports bully” on the show because he constantly intimidates his audience and guests with his encyclopedic sports knowledge, declaring that he’s not “just some dude in the next cubicle over.” Bob also hosts the Dallas Cowboys pre-game show, as well as the Dallas Stars post-game show with Dan McDowell. Bob’s Blog is updated daily.

Dan McDowell

Dan is Bob’s counterpart—a native of Cleveland, Ohio, Dan graduated with a degree in Communications and a minor in Sports Science from Ohio University. McDowell hosted a midday show in Youngstown, Ohio and eventually moved to Dallas, in 1999, to become the host of The Ticket’s midday show. It is well documented in P1 lore that Dan brings the funny, while Bob brings the lunch pail.

Jake Kemp (Producer)

With Gribble’s departure, Jake Kemp moved up the show ladder as the producer. He also hosts the podcast “It’s Just Banter,” with fellow KTCK employee, TC Fleming, as well as “The Shake Joint” with Sean “Sea Bass” Bass. Kemp is perhaps most well-known for his hatred of space and space-related topics.

David Mino (Board Op)

Stuff. And Things.

TC Flemming (Tickers)

TC was the is the originator of the term “Ragonk“, while butchering a ticket ticker one day. He distances himself from the phrase which makes it grow even stronger. Shout out to our friends at He is also half of the It’s Just Banter podcast, alongside his co-host Jake Kemp.
