KTCK (1310 AM; "SportsRadio 1310 The Ticket"), is a sports talk radio station based in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. The station, currently owned by Cumulus Media, has been made popular by the incorporation of humor alongside the sports talk.
The sometime controversial station has posted strong ratings in the Dallas radio market, especially its Arbitron top-rated shows  The Hardline and Dunham and Miller, which have been the anchors of the station's success throughout its existence.
The 1310 kHz frequency has its origins as WRR, which was licensed in August 1921 and became the first broadcast radio station in the state of Texas, and the second in the nation. In 1948, WRR launched an FM station; the AM station played popular music while the FM station carried classical music. 1310 was split from WRR-FM in 1978 and became the first of several incarnations of KAAM when it was owned by the same company that owned KAFM (92.5 MHz) until gaining its current call sign in 1994.
The Ticket's original lineup consisted of Skip Bayless, Curt Menefee, Mike Rhyner and Greg Williams, Chuck Cooperstein, and George Dunham and Craig Miller. Skip Bayless said the first words ever spoken on The Ticket.
On March 6, 2006, the station announced that it would be the flagship affiliate of the Dallas Cowboys radio network. This success was followed up by Arbitron ratings which showed a 60% increase in listeners. However, on January 23, 2009, KTCK and the Dallas Cowboys ended their three-year partnership.
Weekday programming on the station includes "The Musers" hosted by George "Jub Jub" Dunham, Craig "Junior" Miller and Gordon "The Great Gordo" Keith, "The Norm Hitzges Show" hosted by Radio Hall of Fame member Norm Hitzges, "BaD Radio" hosted by Bob Sturm, Dan McDowell and Donovan "The Great Donovan" Lewis, "The Hardline" hosted by Mike "Old Grey Wolf" Rhyner and Corby "The Snake" Davidson, plus "The Ticket Top 10" with Chris House, and the syndicated The Dan Patrick Show. Notable weekend shows include The Train Station Fitness Show with George DeJohn, The TeeBox with Rick Arnett and Craig Rosengarden, The Orphanage with Danny Balis and Dave Lane, Ticket Sports Saturday with Ty Walker, Sean Bass, and Stewart Cedar, Race Week with Rich Philips, plus a Sunday morning show hosted by Mark Elfenbein. When normal Ticket shows are not on the air, the airwaves are filled with Sporting News Radio. The Dallas Stars broadcast team is Ralph Strangis on play-by-play with color analyst Daryl "Razor" Reaugh.
SportsRadio 1310 The Ticket has won many awards over the years. Among them, is the 2007 Marconi Award for "Best Sports Station in America" at the National Association of Broadcasters' annual conference on September 27, 2007. The station and various shows have been Marconi nominees in the past, but this was The Ticket's first win.
