History[edit]

George Dunham and Craig Miller originally met at their alma matter, University of North Texas where they crossed paths during Freshman English.[4] They later went on to co-host a show on a campus radio show before eventually moving on to their professional careers.[4] The Dunham and Miller show was one of the original shows aired on The Ticket when the station debuted in 1994 on 1310 AM in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Dunham and Miller added Gordon Keith to their crew in 1995 and have maintained the same core of hosts ever since. [4]

Popularity[edit]

The Musers regularly post the highest ratings in Dallas radio among sports shows.[2] In its Best of Dallas 2011 article, the Dallas Observer noted, "Dunham & Miller are at this point basically lapping the field in Arbitron ratings. Every hour their show attracts twice the ratings as the offerings of ESPN-103.3 FM and KRLD-105.3 FM The Fan. Combined." [3] Dunham and Miller have also been nominated for the Marconi award for for National Major Market Personalities of the year two times; they then won the award for Sports Station of the year, along with the rest of The Ticket, in 2007. Additionally, the program has been named Best Sports Talk Show by the Dallas Morning News, Ft. Worth Star Telegram, and Dallas Observer.
