The Dallas Morning News Music Critic Mario Tarradell Resigns

Music Critic Mario Tarradell is resigning from The Dallas Morning News today.

"I want to explore other opportunities at this time," says Tarradell in a phone conversation with DC9 at Night. He has been a music critic at the paper for almost 20 years.

Born in Cuba and raised in Florida, Tarradell started his journalism career at The Miami Herald in 1989. He moved to the DMN in 1994 and has become a fixture in Dallas music criticism.

His recent stories include a profile of Overseas, the supergroup with Centro-Matic ties, and a review of this weekend's Brad Paisley concert.
