Dallas' spring saga, the federal corruption trial of County Commissioner John Wiley Price, would've been a lot harder to understand without the yeoman's work of KRLD reporter L.P. Phillips. Day after day, Phillips showed up to the Earle Cabell Federal Building downtown, updating KRLD's listeners throughout the day about the latest goings on in Dallas' trial of the decade. Austin York, Phillips' colleague at the station, is an essential resource for anyone in Dallas who wants a live window into the city's breaking news. While the station's opinion content, led by Christian financial guru Dave Ramsey's nightly show, leaves a lot to be desired, there is nowhere better than 1080 on your AM dial for a Dallas hard news fix.
