Who’s Who?

Host Charlie HodgeHost Charlie Hodge

One of our city’s most successful radio and podcast hosts, Charlie helps us get to know our guests, and keeps our feet tapping to the cultural pulse of Austin. In a sense, Late Show Austin is as unique and eclectic as Austin itself with Hodge at the helm.

Formerly ⅓ of the morning radio trio on The Dudley and Bob Show, Charlie has launched his own 4-hour midday program featuring his brand of idiosyncratic comedy (complete with impressions of notable local figures George W. Bush, the Whataburger dude, and the Lockhart sausage – yes, he impersonates a sausage) mixed with tried and true rock & roll standards. Hodge was previously anchoring an hour-long noon show by himself but this year has taken on a sidekick, veteran Austin comedian Matt Sadler, who reins Hodge in and keeps his comedy on track. Given the synergy created by this teaming, it’s no wonder our readers have pegged Hodge as the best radio chatter in Austin.

Matt “ChickenWing” Sadler

Matt has lived in Austin for more than a dozen years (given the steady influx of artistic types who move here, this practically makes him a native), taking his first steps into professional joke-telling right here. After a number of years honing his performance, steadily writing new material, and hitting the road to further develop his craft, he’s now a seasoned pro, with a slew of credits and accomplishments to do Austin proud.
