7-Year Co-Host and News Anchor Returns Following Stint Away from Radio

New York, NY – June 6, 2018 -- United Stations Radio Networks, Inc. (USRN), is excited to announce that as of this week, SARAH MORGAN has re-joined THE LEX & TERRY MORNING SHOW as a member of the on-air broadcast team.   Morgan spent seven (7) years with the highly-rated and highly regarded Lex & Terry show before departing for a career on board a Carnival Cruise liner, but this week the popular former member of the show staff is once again a current member of the program.   This announcement comes today from USRN’s EVP/Programming, Andy Denemark and from the show’s founding co-hosts, Lex Staley and Terry Jaymes.

Sarah Morgan comes back to the show in a role as full-time on-air contributor, and regarding her return, Lex & Terry commented that “Sarah is a content machine.   She was beloved and revered on the show for many years and it’s fantastic to welcome her back.”   Morgan fills a hole in the show’s on-air lineup that was created by the departure of Krystina Byford who had been with the show for the past two years.   Byford is joining the Creative/Production department at the Cumulus cluster in Dallas to work on the Country outlet KSCS-FM as well as KTCK “The Ticket," on the nation’s top Sports Radio Stations.   Lex and Terry continued by stating that “Both of these young ladies have been a huge part of our success over the last 10 years, and we are happy for both of them to be where they are now.   Krystina will be a major player in Dallas radio, and Sarah is a ratings magnet, so we are thrilled to have her on the air again.”

Lex & Terry first teamed up on the air at WFYV-FM, Jacksonville in 1992.   The two had a successful morning show locally in Jacksonville and then in 1997, the duo decided to take the program into national syndication.   The show found a national audience immediately and Lex & Terry eventually moved their broadcast operations to Dallas, TX, which still serves at the hometown for their studios.  Lex Staley has a long history in radio both on the air and in various management capacities including having been a Program Director.  Terry Jaymes comes from a background of comedy, television and live performance, and together they’ve got over 50 years of combined radio experience.   Currently, the Lex & Terry show is broadcast in dozens of markets from 6am until 11am Eastern Time each weekday, with “Best-Of” segments available for weekend programming.  

United Stations Radio Networks, Inc. is America's leading independently owned and operated radio network.   USRN currently produces and distributes dozens of format-specific programs and services accounting for over 6000 affiliations with commercial radio stations across the country.  The New York-based company maintains programming, sales and affiliate marketing offices in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Washington and Nashville.   USRN was founded in 1994 by radio pioneers Dick Clark and Nick Verbitsky.
