KNTU GM Dan Balla said, “I was looking for someone who recognized the potential of the new and fast-growing 88.1 indie brand in DFW. We share the same philosophy about radio and what we can do to make KNTU special. Todd brings an incredible background and wealth of knowledge to a unique situation.””

Shannon said, “When Dan flipped the format on the main signal to indie in July ‘22, engagement with the students increased tenfold. After meeting with the various student employees of the stations, I was so encouraged to see a genuine interest in all facets of radio and look forward to coaching the next generation of broadcasters at UNT.”
