All My Exes Live in Texas
An Interesting Local
Trailboss Troy grew up right around the corner in Bellville, Texas and studied Communication at Blinn.
His love of being a DJ started when he was a kid. He would set up his little turntable and “play DJ” for his family. He came to KTEX in 2006 and is the Production Director and Program Director. He “plays DJ” every weekday from 6am – 10am on the Morning Express.
Troy spends most of his time in Washington County (he was even in a movie about Washington County), but that doesn’t mean he isn’t busy! In the little free time he does have, he plays his most prized possession, his drum kit, and chases… herd’s goats.
