Tyler Bouldin continues the patented WLOX path of beginning a career via radio. As a freshman at the University of North Texas, he started as a volunteer sports reporter at KNTU, the flagship radio station for the University of North Texas. He was also the first college sophomore to be named Sports Director at KNTU.
While at KNTU, Tyler earned numerous broadcast awards, including a first-place and second-place award for "Best Student Sportscast" by Texas Intercollegiate Press Association (TIPA). During his senior year, Tyler was an Honorable Mention for the Jim Nantz Award, which is given to the best collegiate sportscaster. He was the only one from the state of Texas to have been nominated.
After serving the maximum two school years as Sports Director, Tyler took the same position with UNT's flagship television station, North Texas Television (ntTV). He spent almost three months at that position before accepting a Communications internship with the NHL's Dallas Stars.
Despite being born and raised in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, Tyler grew up as an avid hockey fan. His sports broadcasting role models include Stars play-by-play announcer Ralph Strangis, former KNTU Sports Director and current Dallas Mavericks play-by-play announcer Mark Followill, and legendary broadcaster Pat Summerall.
