Kevin “KT” Turner

Kevin “KT” Turner is the producer of 105.3 The Fan’s “Ben and Skin Show”.

Kevin was raised in a small town with about 3,000 people called Olney, TX. Ever since the age of 6, he knew that radio would be his career choice. At the age of 13, before he’d even hit puberty, he was doing play-by-play for Olney High School sports as well as other radio goofball odd jobs.  KT attended The University of North Texas, where he graduated with a degree in Radio/TV/Film.  At KNTU the university’s radio station, he worked in a number of roles as DJ, Reporter, Anchor, and Talk Show Host. In 2010 he was hired at Sports Radio 1310 The Ticket in Dallas, and worked there until May of 2013 when he joined “The Ben and Skin Show”.

Kevin’s long term life goal is to become a touring member of The Polyphonic Spree, while also marrying three women at once. He’s looking at you Aubrey Plaza, Alison Brie, and Rashida Jones. KT is a self-admitted TV goober and is also a narcoleptic. He assumes he has no children, mainly due to the low volume of sexual activity. Now it’s time for a thing called KT’s favorite things.
