On Saturday June 19, 2010, the show will hit the air waves on KFXR 1190am in Dallas/Fort Worth at 10 am, CST. "I am very excited to be heard in Dallas," said Brown, who is well known in the area from his high school days at Woodrow Wilson.“The Legends of Sport with Tim Brown” will feature one-on-one conversations with famous legends past and present in the world of sports and entertainment. Former Dallas Cowboy, Everson Walls and former Dallas Cowboys vice president of player personnel, Gil Brandt, will speak with Brown on the show’s debut broadcast.“I love this type of show”, says Brown who is also a veteran broadcaster.“This is the type of show that I prefer to do rather than bantering with callers. It also gives me a chance to voice my opinions as well as get my subjects to open up and feel free to say what is on their mind.”
Thomas Bailey, veteran sports analyst and former sports talk show host and President of Game On Sports Productions of Dallas, is the executive producer of the show. Past and present students from MediaTech Institute are handling all of the production work and the broadcasts are all recorded at MediaTech’s expansive facilities in Las Colinas. Students and graduates of the MediaTech Institute Recording Arts program are producing the show in two 26-week segments. Bailey says this of his youthful production team; “I have been involved in sports broadcasting and producing radio and television shows for 30 years. I have to say, I have been very impressed in working with the MediaTech crew who are extremely professional, have a good sense of direction, and they really know what they are doing,” states Bailey.
“We are very excited to add Tim Brown to our programming lineup. His name alone will attract big name guests and that’s putting it mildly. His knowledge and reputation as a straight up guy is something many people in the sports world respect and we are looking forward to a long relationship,” states Darren Peck, President of Sports Byline USA.
