Radio personalities are said to create podcasts about things that they are passionate about. For hot AC “Mix 96.5” KHMX Houston morning show personality Jessie Watt that is food, and the result is the launch of the new podcast called I’m Sorry for What I Said When I Was Hangry! Watt will partner with food influencer Danielle Dubois to create the foodie podcast that will be an exploration of what his market has to offer.
“Since my arrival to Houston in January, I have been able to experience the vast array of food options the city has to offer,” said Watt in the announcement. “I look forward to teaming up with Danielle to use food as a vehicle for connecting with our listeners every weekend.”
Entercom is giving the podcast an over-the-air radio promotional vehicle. I’m Sorry for What I Said When I Was Hangry will air every Saturday morning at 9am on KHMX’s sister station “CBS Sports Radio 650” KIKK beginning July 18.
“Houston food is second to none, and we believe it deserves dedicated attention,” said Entercom Houston Market Manager Sarah Frazier. “I’m Sorry for What I Said When I Was Hangry was created to serve as a unique and special celebration of the Houston food scene and fulfill our listeners’ craving for their local favorites.”
In the show Entercom says Watt and Dubois will rely on the premise of bringing people who love food together to talk about food. Like the melting pot that makes up the Houston food scene, Watts and Dubois have roots spanning from the Midwest to the Southern Creole of Louisiana. The show will combine Dubois’ food expertise with Watt’s enthusiasm for food to create a show that features where to go for the best food, reviews of new restaurants, some of the best happy hour spots in town and the best takeout.
Watt has served as an on-air personality for Mix 96.5’s “The Morning Mix” since January 2020. Prior to that role, she was a morning show producer and on-air personality for sister country WYCD Detroit (99.5).
Danielle Dubois, a Louisiana native, launched Hangry Houstonian in 2017 to share the best of her food experiences with the Houston community.
“I’m excited to showcase why and how I fell in love with the city of Houston and to give locals and transplants like myself and Jessie a resource to utilize to get the most out of the city,” said Dubois. “Houston has such a diverse culinary and bar scene and we look forward to doing the leg work and let listeners know our findings.”
