He's unpredictable. He's controversial. He's Dale Jackson. Start your day in the know. It's The Dale Jackson Show, the first and best source for news and politics in Alabama. From local news to national headlines, Dale Jackson tells it straight and insists on straight-talk from our leaders. He cuts through the political platitudes and demands answers. Hailing from the swampland, Dale first left Florida for the Army where he was stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington, and would join the Reserves for a way too short time after beginning college. After the Army, Dale began his radio career in 2003 while attending the University of Florida with "The Attack Machine", a weekly program on WSKY in Gainesville, Florida. Defined by a relentless authenticity and unapologetic humor, Dale made a name for himself in Panama City, and got fired in Birmingham, before calling North Alabama home in 2007. Never one to miss an opportunity, in March of 2014, Dale began hosting 2 talk shows a day - his morning show and a live-and-local midday show on 1070 WAPI in Birmingham. In April of 2015, Dale's morning show extended to four hours and began broadcasting in both Birmingham and Huntsville. Dale has been nationally recognized as a multi-time Talkers Magazine Top Talker and had a resolution passed in the Alabama Legislature honoring his commitment to local issues. Join in on The Dale Jackson Show every weekday morning from 5AM to 9AM.
