Andy Hudack retires from Houston radio

Andy Hudack retired from a long Houston radio career as a senior broadcast engineer with Cox Media Group Houston (93Q Country KKBQ, 106.9 KHPT & 107.5 KGLK The Eagle, Country Legends 97.1 FM KTHT) where he has been since 2002.

The Houston radio community gave Hudack a retirement celebration at Charlie's BBQ in Bellaire on September 7, 2022. 

"I truly had some great times with some of the best talent in Houston radio of days gone by, but also had the future generation of great radio folks in attendance yesterday," Hudack told on Facebook.

Hudack's Houston radio career started 47 years ago in 1975 when he was a board operator for Top 40 KRLY 94 FM (93.7).

He went on to work for other stations like 95.7 KIKK, 99.1 KODA, 104.1 KRBE along with The Houston Oilers, Houston Cougars and Houston Texans radio networks.  

"While Hudak had the ability to master just about any engineering job he was assigned, it was his ability to fix things on the fly earned him the nickname 'MacGyver,'" Houston radio legend Rowdy Yates emailed to "As an on-site remote engineer, he was without peer."

As a thank you for his dedication to his craft, Hudack was inducted into the Texas Radio Hall of Fame in 2015.
