Dallas Morning Mixing

According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Julie Hoyt-Fisk has left the morning mix at Mix 102.9 (KDMX) in Dallas. The rest of the cast, primarily Tony and Cappy, remain in place. The radio station's website, per usual, makes no mention of the change, even on their "New Morning Mix" page.

I could not agree more I listen to her on the edge and switch to 102.9 when she moved! Morning Radio is crap here in Dallas/Ft. Worth. Rich left 106.1 and now you can hear the whine of Kelly R and Big Al and "Kidd" talk like they are still in their 20's and hot, which please guys hang it up!! I miss Rich and Julie!!!! Come back!!! Our moring radio sucks without you guys!!!!!!!!!

Heather said...

Ditto. I have been searching the web for her. I left 102.1 an went to the drab music of 102.9 just for her. Also, now that she has left 102.1 the morning show guys are gone.

Claudia said...

All I can say is that we miss her. Julie you did a great job and the mornings are not the same witout you. We don't even listen that radio station anymore.
Please somebody, We want Julie Back!!!!

I went on vacation, came back, no Julie...like others, I switched from the edge to 102.9 because I liked her...not the boys... I went back to the edge and Jagger and Dean are gone... I miss you Julie! Come back to radio soon! You were awesome...

I used to listen to them at work. Now I just listen to the streaming digital mix without ads or DJs. I didn't like their other DJs.

I totally agree. I left the Edge when Julie did and now I'm adrift in the mornings. What is it with Dallas? Do good morning DJs automatically get fired or something? Julie, hope you're doing well out there . . . you too, Rich, and Dean, and heck, Jon Rivers, you too. Can't agree more with Anonymous on 2/1 -- Kellie wears me out with the whine (but I'm really happy for her and Freddy that they are finally expecting. All the best, Kellie. Just please stop whining.)

I MISS JULIE!

She was the only reason I listened to The Edge, when she moved to 102.9 I moved with her. Now she's gone and the morning show is blah.

Thank goodness for my iPod.

I switched from 102.1 when Julie went over to 102.9 as she has such a great gift for morning radio. Now 102.9 is BORING without her. We need her back at a station in DFW. I am listing to AM talk shows now.

I don't know what exactly happened with Julie. But here's a site that explains the morning change at KDGE: http://www.guidelive.com/sharedcontent/dws/ent/stories/DN-radiobrief_0208gl.ART.State.Edition1.73d7357.html
Apparently, contract renewal disagreements - according to ClearChannel of course- they suck. First, Q102... then they changed 97.1 the Eagle into "Sunny FM". Why do they have such a monopoly?! I hate Lex & Terry, but then again, I am not in their targeted population (males aged 19-49). wtf? Who cares about nationally syndicated, it is crap. Give me local anyday.

I keep scanning the radio stations looking for Julie, Jagger, and Dean. I hated when the broke them up but like others I kept switching between the channels. Now they are all gone and morning radio sucks in DFW. I listen to morning radio for the DJ's not the music. When is Clear Channel going to realize that not everyone listening to the radio is young and stupid. The 30 something crowd also listens. We want our DJ's back!

Jagger returns to Dallas airwaves this coing Monday, April 10, 2006, on 105.3 Freedom FM. I could be wrong about the time slot, but I believe they are kicked David Lee Roth, who sucks, out of the morning drive time slot and replacing him with at least Jagger, if not also another member of the former Morning Edge.

I have been searching for a way to contact some "big wig" at Clear Channel about the new morning edge with Lex and Terry. I know tons of people (mostly women of course) that are appauled by the content of their show and want them off. Does anyone know who to contact? I think if enough people write/call in and stop listening then maybe something will change. Afterall there is no station without listeners.

I really miss Julie too. I switch from 102.1 to 102.9 with Julie. And, now I refuse to listen to 102.9 because she is no longer on the show. I can't stand the Morning Edge. Whose bright idea was it to bring those two idiots on the Morning Edge. And, Tony and Cappy are crappy without Jule. I wonder if ratings have slipped for both of the two stations and has increased for 106.1????

absolutely disgusted with FM radio in Dallas right now.

Breaking up the morning Edge team of Jagger, Julie and Dean was the worst mistake Clear Channel could have made. Now they are all gone. They were the only redeemable features to morning radio in the DFW metroplex. It sickens me that we have such a no-talent ass clown show like "Lex and Terry" to deal with. What a bunch of morons. I won't even flip channels anymore because everything is so mindless...I will continue listening to my cd's. I miss Jagger, Julie and Dean!!!!

I heard that some other goofballs are taking over the Freedom slot where Roth was...no joy in Mudville for us. :(

Jagger is back on the air in Dallas at Free FM Talker, WLLI. Jagger, who spent 8 years at the The Edge, will also be joined by his former co-host, Jasmine.

I was excited that Jagger and Dean came back. But I wish they would trade Jasmine and Mondo in for Julie. Mondo gets on my nerves. I switched to Stern after Mondo came to 102.1. Please, please bring back Julie!

Tom said...

Does any one know what Jagger's real name is? I think he did radio in Chicago years ago. I think his name is Steve Cochran. I went to see Dean at the Addison Improv and he wouldn't tell me what Jagger's real name was but he did say it wasn't Jagger. Working on a mystery!

I thought his real name was Chris Jagger. Tom, Did you ever listen when he was with Julie? He never talks about his partner anymore. Jasmine reminds me of that chick from 106 with kid kraddock

I, too, would like to cast my vote to PLEASE bring back Jagger, Julie, Mondo and Dean. I gave Lex & Terry the benefit of the doubt for as long as I could stand it and they're worse than terrible. They lack diversity, humor or even intelligence and I refuse to listen to the EDGE in the morning. Tammie

you'll find Jagger, Mondo, Dean, and Jasmine on 105.5 from 8-12.

Would love to find Julie. I moved to Fort Worth and woke up with her for 5 years. This last year hasn't been the same!

I heard Julie's voice on Jack FM 100.3 plugging Dr. Boothe, so I know it's her. I heard her announce the Jack'tivities, but I don't think she has a show.

Anonymous said...

I heard her on Jack FM too! I was sooo excited to actually hear her on the radio in any way, shape, or form!

I hope she has a kick-ass position there! Even if we can't hear her on a show, at least we can hear her every now and then!

I like Lex and Terry, and I like Russ Martin - I think they are funny. I find my self flipping back and forth to Jagger and L & T depending on what they are saying. Thats the cool thing about radios they give you choice.

I think Julie is on Jack- FM now

It's bad enough that Julie is gone from 102.9, but I went to Chicago for a business trip Feb 18-20, and when I turned on my radio, while getting ready for work, the show has changed from the Tony & Cappy show to the Tony & Victoria show....WTF??? What happened to Cappy...just like all the other changes, no one has even blinked an eye and made any reference to him or his being gone.

Julie is at Jack fm and now Cappy is gone!! Shaffer left to go to do her internship at a hospital. Wow, I dont listen to the station anymore. How sad. Clear Channel at its finest. Look out Tony! lol
