Radio and are Engine sputtering together. Please help!

Hey Y'all,

So, I think I have quite a unique problem with my truck, maybe not, I guess we'll see.

I was driving on the interstate this morning when my check engine light came on. Almost at the exact same time the light came on my truck started sputtering. Not sputtering hard- just every few seconds, for a split second, it would sputter. It sounded and felt like the truck was turning off for the split second every time it did it, but it never did. However, it continued to consistently do it my entire drive home. Interestingly enough, the radio would cut out at the exact same time as the short sputter. The truck DID NOT do this when I put it on cruise control. I was going approximately 65-70mph at 1800-2100 rpm. Even on cruise control going the same speed at the same rpm the truck didn't sputter and the radio didn't cut out.

It is not kicking out black or white smoke and I cannot smell any fumes or anything burning.

I haven't run codes yet, which I am going to do later today. I just wanted to hear some opinions...
