Mitch Carr

141 Mitch Carr Mitch Carr has been part of the North Texas scene since arriving from Indiana in 1975. His radio career began as a teenager on KGBX-1260AM in Springfield, Missouri. Four years in the U.S. Air Force put Mitch on AFRTS radio and television in Japan as well as doing voiceover work on USAF training films.

After four years in the AF, Mitch moved to Indiana to attend Butler University and work in local radio. His campus claim to fame is having attended basketball games in the arena seen in the movie “Hoosiers”, although Gene Hackman was not around.

1975 meant KLIF in Dallas and then a call from the great Bud Stiker brought him to FM102…which soon became the powerhouse AOR station Q-102……Four years at the Q—-followed by a stint at KMGC and KIXK and Metro Traffic.

In 1985, Mitch joined the Ron Chapman Show on 103.7 KVIL. Mitch moved with Ron to 98.7 KLUV in September 2000 and then made the transition to Newsradio 1080 KRLD in the summer of 2009.

Mitch is married to Illeen and they enjoy travel, trying out new restaurants, and spending time with their daughter’s family (including two “perfect” grandchildren).

Mitch’s travels have taken him to the Great Wall of China, the Pyramids of Egypt as well as to Germany, France, Ireland, Morocco, Ecuador and many other exciting places.

Mitch lives in Garland and enjoys bugging his council representative and the code enforcement office.
