Anne Hudson is so much more than an influencer. Starting as a traffic reporter at iHeartMedia here in Austin, Hudson was eventually given her own show on KASE 101. She was the morning show co-host on sister station 96.7 KISS-FM’s popular morning show The Billy The Kidd Show (2016-2021), and is currently hosting middays on KASE 101 and 96.7 KISS-FM.
But that’s not all the Texas Tech grad does. As one of iHeartMedia’s top talents, she has hosted national broadcasted events such as: the iHeart Country Festival in Austin, the Florida Georgia Line national album release party in New York, the iHeart Summer Pool Party in Miami, and the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas. She has also hosted segments and shows on Time Warner Cable News, LiveXLive, Fox Sports Television and ME Television.
And as if that doesn’t take up enough of her time, the mother of three dedicates much of her “free” time to philanthropy, hosting and raising awareness for such events as: Lifeworks Austin, The Birthday Party Project,March of Dimes, St Jude Children’s Hospital, The ARC of the Capital Area, McLane Children’s Scott and White, CureSearch for Children’s Cancer, Key to the Cure, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, and Center for Child Protection.
Hudson was kind enough to take a few minutes to sit down with ATXgossip to answer our Totally Texas and ATX-tra questions. Here’s what she had to say.
Who’s your favorite Austin celebrity?
Matthew McConaughey! He’s the obvious choice, but for good reason. He represents the quintessential Texan and I LOVE every single thing about him.
What’s your favorite Austin shot movie or TV show?
For sure Office Space. I’ve always been obsessed with Jennifer Aniston. Back in the day, we would go to the The Old Alligator Grill just because she was there at one point filming the movie! I’m a dork!
Who is your favorite Texas band/ musician?
My husbands band, Fred Andrews and Honeybrowne!
What actor would you classify as “totally Texan?”
See above… for sure our Austin staple, Matthew!
What’s your theme song?
Miley Cyrus – The Climb. Haaaa, FOR REAL.
Who would play you in the movie of your life?
Emma Stone. I’ve had people, on multiple occasions, stop me and ask if I’m her… so I’m thinking that would be a good one. Ha.
What advice do you have for Austinites looking to be successful in social media?
Be authentic! Austin is made up of authenticity and it’s one of my most favorite things about this city. Find the inner most YOU & let it shine!
