Mix 96.5 KHMX dumps Kidd Kraddick; going local

UPDATE JANUARY 07, 2014

Radio's Kidd Kraddick has died

UPDATE 2/20/2013
Mix 96.5 KHMX moves Blake Hayes to mornings

I tweeted this out last night and got such a reaction, that I'm blogging about it too.

The Houston Chronicle is reporting that Mix 96.5 KHMX is dropping the Dallas-based syndicated morning show Kidd Kraddick in the Morning. Kidd and crew were on in Houston for a little more than a year.

You might remember that Kraddick replaced the legendary 104.1 KRBE morning host Maria Todd and co-host Brad Booker. Todd moved over to News 92 FM KROI. Booker left for country powerhouse KWNR-AM in Las Vegas.

The Chron says that KHMX producer John Paul Stevenson aka “Producer JP” will take over until a full-time replacement is found. By the way, Stevenson is the Rockets’ PA dude at the Toyota Center.

Guess until someone is officially hired for Mix 96.5 mornings, we can just watch for Maria Todd and Sam Malone sightings around town.

Don't worry about Kidd Kraddick, you can still catch him on TV in Houston.
