KVUE - Off the Airwaves Podcast
Summary: KVUE Off the Airwaves is a candid, honest, in-depth and entertaining look at the stories behind some of Austin's best and most talked about local news. Hosted by Austin journalist Jay Wallis.
When Hurricane Harvey made landfall in August of 2017, it changed the lives of so many across Texas. Now one year removed from that severe weather event, KVUE meteorologists Albert Ramon, Erika Lopez and Nathan Gogo sit down together to discuss what that time was like, explain how they balanced team coverage with their safety and reflect on how it has changed each of their lives.
What is on-air chemistry? What does it look like on and off the TV screen for co-anchors to truly enjoy being around each other? KVUE Daybreak's very own Bryan Mays and Yvonne Nava stopped by to talk about what brought them together, why they knew this pairing would click and some of their favorite (and funniest/most awkward) stories through the years.
Host Jay Wallis has a special message and request for KVUE Off the Airwaves listeners.
