Jeff “Skin” Wade – Television Analyst
Jeff Skin WadeJeff “Skin” Wade is in his fourth full season as Mavericks analyst after joining the broadcast midway through the 2008-09 season. He brings a quirky personality and strong basketball knowledge, and is also a big part of the interactive components of the home game telecasts.

Skin can be heard weekdays from 2 to 6 pm on 105.3 The Fan as half of the Ben and Skin Show, which he co-hosts with Ben Rogers. Good friends since high school, Ben and Skin came up through the DFW media ranks due in large part to their Mavericks Postgame duties for KTCK, starting back in the 2002-03 season.

Skin was born and raised in the Metroplex and holds a B.A. in Radio/TV/Film from the University of North Texas. He’s obsessed with hoops, old-school hip-hop, art flicks and his wife Tricia, and their two kids, Maya and Desmond. He is the exact opposite of a scratch golfer.
