PHILADELPHIA, PA – July 17, 2020 – Entercom, a leading media and entertainment company and the #1 creator of live, original, local audio content, announced the launch of I’m Sorry for What I Said When I Was Hangry!, an epicurean foodie podcast featuring Mix 96.5 (KHMX-FM) morning show personality Jessie Watt and food influencer, Hangry Houstonian, Danielle Dubois. I’m Sorry for What I Said When I Was Hangry! will air every Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. CT on sister station CBS Sports Radio 650 (KIKK-AM) beginning July 18, and will be available to listeners nationwide on RADIO.COM, the fastest-growing digital audio app in the U.S.
“The amalgamation of cultures in Houston has created a place where limitless food combinations are created, and the sheer quantity of excellent new endeavors has catapulted us onto the national stage,” said Sarah Frazier, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Houston. “Houston food is second to none, and we believe it deserves dedicated attention. 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.”
I’m Sorry for What I Said When I Was Hangry! was founded 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.
“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. “I look forward to teaming up with Danielle to use food as a vehicle for connecting with our listeners every weekend.”
Jessie 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 station 99.5 WYCD (WYCD-FM) in Detroit. She joined Entercom in 2017 as a promotions coordinator and was previously a board operator.
“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.”
Danielle Dubois, a Louisiana native, launched Hangry Houstonian in 2017 to share the best of her food experiences with the Houston community.
Listeners can tune in to CBS Sports Radio 650 (KIKK-AM) in Houston on air, as well as nationwide on the RADIO.COM app and website. Fans can also connect with the station on social media via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
