Houston's Mix 96.5 KHMX has had some turnover in the morning drive over the last few years.
Maria Todd came back to Houston to work at the CBS station in 2010, she was later replaced by Dallas-based syndicated guy Kidd Kraddick, whose show was just dropped last November.
With a promise of going local, Mix 96.5 KHMX afternoon drive man Blake Hayes will be moved to mornings starting Monday, February 25th. At the same time, Chad Pitt will join the Mix team for afternoon drive. Chad comes to Houston from Hot 101.5 in Tampa, but no stranger to CBS, having handled afternoon drive and Adult Top 40 WSJT Tampa.

“I believe this move will sure up our personality driven line up on Mix,” said KHMX PD Bob Neumann. “Blake is the perfect fit for where we’re going with morning show. I talked to many very talented people during my search, but in the end, Blake is the right fit. It’s nice to be able to promote from within.”
“I worked with Chad in Tampa," Neumann added. "He’s a real pro and will fit right in with the Mix staff.”
Morning news and traffic will continue to be handled by John Paul Stevenson, who will also serve as morning show producer. Hayes has been handling Afternoon Drive for Mix since January of 2012.
