Turns out, Josh Venable still works for Clear Channel after all -- only, now it's in Los Angeles. Clear Channel's Dallas market manager, J.D. Freeman, sends words that today, it was officially announced that the former Adventure Club host and KDGE-FM (102.1) music director is joining KYSR-FM (98.7) -- a "modern adult contemporary" station. Says the announcement, Venable will be holding down the 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. shift.

In the release, the station's VP of operations and programming director, Michael Martin, had this to say of Venable and his new gig, which reminds us of Dodgeball: "We're excited to have Josh and the passion for music he'll bring. Josh will take over 'The Bad Ass 8 at Ocho' and be a regular host for STAR Lounges and other specialty programming." He also says, no kiddin', "Keep your eye on 98.7 in 2008, 'cuz we are about to rock LA!" Awesome, dude. Awesome. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
