Atom Smasher returns to morning radio

Atom Smasher joins Katy Dempsey on CANDY 95 KNDE in Bryan-College Station from the "Katy and Smash" show

Houston and Dallas radio veteran Atom Smasher returns to radio.

Smasher is joining Top 40 CANDY 95 KNDE in Bryan-College Station.

He's teaming up with station program director and host Katy Dempsey for the new "Katy and Smash" show.

"I’m excited to be with a company that still follows the fundamental rules of what radio was intended to be," Smasher said in a statement. "CANDY 95 is local and community driven. They just won a MARCONI, so I’d say they’re pretty good at it. Big thanks to General Manager, Ben Downs, for having faith in my skills and PD Katy Dempsey who has already shown herself to be one of the most dedicated/hard-working people I’ve seen. Now how long before she hates seeing my face in the morning?"

“It’s not a pretty face, but he’ll do," Dempsey added. "We are excited to introduce Atom to our audience. A large portion of our listeners are from Houston/Dallas, so it’s going to be a pleasant surprise for those who grew up with the guy. (That’s an OLD joke).”

Smasher originally made a name for himself in our area on nights at 104.1 KRBE. He later moved to mornings. He has done stints at 106.1 KISS FM Dallas, Hot 96 WSTO-FM Evansville, IN, and Mix 96.5 KHMX Houston.

He last did mornings on the now non-existent 102.1 The EDGE KDGE Dallas - Fort Worth.

Since then he has launched The Bad Daditutde podcast.

The new show debuts this Monday, November 6th from 6am to 10am.
