We've already told you when KERA-FM's all-music offshoot, KXT, launches -- November 9 at 7 a.m. But the question remains: Who's gonna do the talkin' while the station gets to rockin'? This morning, we have some idea: Jeff Ramirez, veep of radio, sends word that former Ticket traffic reporter Gini Mascorro will serve as the station's music coordinator, as well as the host for the weekday KXT Morning Show and KXT Texas Mix on Fridays. Joe Kozera (who was, says the press release, "host of a Sunday morning show for Weatherford's 89.5 QXFM") will host the weekday KXT Afternoon and KXT Evening shows. The station's Web site is also live -- and there you'll find the in-studio schedule, which kicks off with Sarah Jaffe. Of course it does. The O's and Danny Balis to follow. One suggestion: more sitar.
