And now that I think of it, Chris Arnold ain’t bad either.
Already sporting Jasmine Sadry in the morning and Sybil Summers in the afternoon, 105.3 The Fan has further cemented its claim as Dallas-Fort Worth’s best-looking sports-talk radio station by hiring experienced voice Jane Slater to team with Mark Elfenbein in its midday time slot. Slater, now the blonde bombshell banana in The Fan’s brunette sandwich, begins her new co-hosting gig June 4.
With the departure of long-time Fan voice Arnie Spanier, nights are also being tweaked on The Fan with the addition of familiar face Chris Arnold. The long-time K104 host and forever emcee of Dallas Mavericks home games at American Airlines Center will join Gavin Dawson for an expanded show 7-Midnight.
“Jane and Chris are both extremely talented and I sincerely believe their characteristics, personalities and unique perspectives will further The Fan’s objective to be the voice of the many diverse sports fans in North Texas,” says Bruce Gilbert, Vice President of CBS Radio in Dallas. “Additionally, they will be outstanding teammates.”
Slater, who joins The Fan from sister station 1080 AM KRLD, has experience as a TV anchor and in radio via news, sideline reporting, sports and traffic. She is a native Texan, having grown up in Rowlett and graduating from the University of Texas. She joins Elfenbein full-time after The Fan’s a three-month search in the wake of Josh Lewin’s departure to be the radio play-by-play voice of the New York Mets in February.
I’m pretty sure the new lineup will sound better. And, speaking for the entire Fan crew, I know I can’t wait for the first group photo shoot.
