Dallas Love Field Airport (DAL) has announced a new live broadcast show and podcast titled “Lead with Love.” Rather than a traditional host, “Lead With Love” is a conversation between multiple voices of Dallas discussing ways that strong leadership, respect of diversity and inclusion, and celebration of local culture make a difference in the community. The show’s guests converse and answer audience questions in a lively manner during the live video broadcast. The 30-minute lunchtime interchange is a back-and-forth dialogue that aims to inspire, uplift and entertain.
The inaugural season kicks off on June 1 at 12:30 p.m. (Central) and can be watched live on Love Field’s social media: Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. Viewers are encouraged to comment and ask questions. After each episode airs, the recorded podcast is available on Apple Podcast, Spotify and iHeartRadio.
Aired in February 2021, the pilot episode featured Cynt Marshall, CEO of the Dallas Mavericks, and Tex Moton, graffiti artist and muralist who designed the 2019 City Edition Mavs’ uniforms and Dallas Love Field’s Parking Garage C and terminal emblazoned with the Mavericks’ theme and “rowdy” messages. That episode can be seen at https://youtu.be/gSaTytE9dzQ and heard on Apple Podcast, Spotify and iHeartRadio (links above).

Chris Perry, Dallas Love Field’s external communications and marketing manager, said, “Lead with Love is an ongoing dialogue with the community about topics that transcend the airport—leadership, diversity and culture—and features local people who make a difference through support of good works and positive initiatives. The June 1 show with James and Barak should be fun, especially if you’re a film buff or a movie lover. Their film festivals support local and diverse new voices and talents.”
