Commissioner Ryan Sitton Partners with Radio Show to Produce ‘The Energy Minute’

06/13/2018

AUSTIN — Texas Railroad Commissioner Ryan Sitton recently partnered with “In the Oil Patch,” a radio show produced by Shale Magazine, to produce daily one-minute energy updates with everything Texans need to know about energy prices, current events impacting markets and more. The segment, “The Energy Minute,” is part of a new expansion for “In the Oil Patch” and brings the show to nine signals and five radio stations throughout the state, reaching millions of listeners each week. 

“We have in Texas an opportunity to become the most powerful energy economy in the world, which is why it’s critical that Texans are up-to-date on energy news, regulations and trends impacting them,” Sitton said. “This radio segment is an effective, educational way to reach millions of Texans, giving them the information they need to feel confident about producing a massive part of the world’s energy right in our backyard.” 

To hear “The Energy Minute,” Texans can tune in on KSIX in Corpus Christi, KWEL in Midland, Freedom 1160 in San Antonio, KRTH in Houston, and KFXR in Dallas. 

“Oil and gas in Texas are significant sources of economical development and high paying jobs for our great state,” Kym Bolado, publisher and CEO of Shale Magazine, said. “Informing and educating the community on energy topics is our mission, and we are fortunate to have the assistance of the Railroad Commission of Texas and Railroad Commissioner Ryan Sitton to help us achieve this goal.”
