Eberhart Takes TAB Board Seat

Steve Eberhart, owner/operator of KGAF-AM Gainesville, was selected to represent Small Market Radio on the TAB Board, filling a short-term vacancy left by the resignation of Mike Koenig with KRBA/KYBI/KSML/KZXL Lufkin-Nacogdoches.

Eberhardt started in broadcasting as a high school student in 1973 in Gainesville at the very station he now owns, moving to Sherman after graduation to work at Top 40 KIKM in 1976.

In his own words:
In 1978 I landed at the legendary KVIL in Dallas.  Ron Chapman hired me, and I worked various shifts until 1984.

From KVIL I went to KLUV Dallas and assisted in migrating the format to full-fledged Oldies while there from 1984 to 1988.  I returned to KVIL as Music Director from 1988 to 1992.

I did 4 years at KDMX on the morning show while working at ABC Radio Network where I stayed for 20 years.  A brief departure to Austin and the Capstar voice tracking facility but then back to Dallas.

In 2000 I began consulting small market radio in North Texas and in 2008 decided to invest in radio myself and purchased my old hometown station, KGAF. We completely revamped the operation, not only format but built a new studio and office building.  We have turned it into what I would term one of the best small market stations in the state, if not the country.

In 2018, we added an FM translator and now have an A+ facility with a strong local following and business. I am heavily involved in all aspects of the station, programming, news, sales, engineering and anything else that comes up.

I’ve always fashioned myself as a teacher of the craft and would love the opportunity to share my knowledge and help other small market station excel as we have.
