Keith is a Dublin High School graduate and worked for three years as sports editor for The Dublin Citizen while pursuing a degree in communications at Tarleton State University.

And he was a broadcaster for Tarleton Athletics Radio Network for five years.

He is the son of Robert and Karen Keith and grew up on the family dairy in the Highland area.

He most recently worked for a promotional marketing firm in Ft Worth.

“Sports is my passion,” Keith said. “I want to bring as much coverage to sports in the area as possible. I think it’s going to be a banner year in Cross Timbers area sports.”

“We’re excited to have Brad as part of our team,” E-T Publisher Rochelle Stidham said. “He shows a lot of enthusiasm to make our sports coverage one of the best for years to come, and being from the area, he has a vested interest to do just that.”
