Norm Hitzges & Donovan Lewis

Norm Hitzges hosted the first full-time sports talk-show in morning drive time in the country right here in Dallas Ft Worth over 30 years ago. He has been on-air continuously for all those years in the DFW Market. Hitzges is known for his enthusiasm and knowledge of sports trivia and his penchant and success for handicapping all sports. But especially for his first love outside of broadcasting: horse racing. Hitzges has been honored by the Texas Radio Broadcasters Hall of Fame, the Dallas All of Sports Association and the Texas Baseball Hall of Fame. Norm also hosts the “Norm-A-Thon”, a yearly 18 hour marathon broadcast to raise money for a area homeless.

Known to Ticket P1s as “The Great Donovan,” or “Donnie-Doo”, Donovan Lewis co hosts 10am-12n with Radio Hall of Famer Norm Hitzges. Donovan and Norm have been paired on the Cowboys Postgame Show since 2007 so the teaming of the two for a regular weekday show is a no brainer. It just took us a little while to realize it. Prior to teaming up with Norm, Donovan rode shotgun on BaD Radio with Bob Sturm and Dan McDowell from 2006 to 2015 after joining “The Ticket” from sister station KDBN “93.3 The Bone”, where he was known as “The Bone Brotha.”

A proud member of Alpha Phi Alpha, Donnie has several regular segments, including Ghetto Jeopardy.
