Scott Murray is excited to get back on the radio and join the KLIF News and Information line-up with The Scott Murray Show.

We here in Texas like to think of ourselves as being the biggest and the best when it comes to competing with just about anyone or anything. Well, how about this? The state of Texas ranks 14th among nations in the world when measuring Gross Domestic Product, ahead of such countries as Australia, Mexico, Netherlands, Switzerland and Sweden. And, much of it’s given away each year by thousands of generous Texans. Philanthropically the United States ranks first in the world as the most charitable country, followed by Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. And, here in north Texas, did you have any idea that the residents of the city of Dallas each year give 4.4 % of every dollar earned to charity. And, those 1.4 million people who call Dallas home (21% of the residents) volunteer for a non-profit organization every year, exceeded only by those who volunteer in the cities of New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.
The point is we are a most benevolent country and live in a very generous state, thanks to individuals, groups, trusts, small companies and large corporations. From famous celebrities to Hall of Fame athletes, civic leaders to corporate CEO’s, media personalities to the difference makers of the world, we’ll talk to them all each week on The Scott Murray Show. It’s your chance to find out what makes them tick, why they give back, and, why they select to support the charities they do. We’ll be joined each week by representatives of local non-profits, from volunteers to executive directors to corporate partners to hear about how they raise money and awareness for their charitable organizations, and, how you, too, can get involved with their mission and special events.
So, join us for The Scott Murray Show every Sunday night here on 570 KLIF News and Information from 6:00-7:00pm! Get involved in the conversation by calling 888-787-KLIF and share the importance of charitable leadership, giving back, being a difference maker, doing whatever it takes by lending a helping hand to those most in need. We’ll see you on the radio!
