“We are thrilled to have Dana Cortez back on the airways in Houston!” said Melissa Chase, Vice President, Programming of Audacy Houston. “Dana, Automatic and Anthony are captivating in content and audience relatability, and we are so excited to have them join Mix 96.5 weekends!”
J Steele, Program Director at KKFR-FM Phoenix, also spoke to the addition of The Dana Cortez Weekend Show, stating, “The Dana Cortez Show already captivates the audience each weekday morning on KKFR. We had a spot open on Saturday mornings to give the audience compelling content and the obvious choice was to give more of The Dana Cortez Show to The Valley! Whether you’re in a PPM or diary market, the quick and entertaining breaks are exactly what you need on the weekends.”
In addition to the launch of The Dana Cortez Weekend Show comes affiliate growth for The Dana Cortez Show in new markets, including KLHB-FM Corpus Christi, TX and KEAZ-FM Kensett, AR.

Together, we’ve curated a unique brand that connects with audiences every single day through authenticity, while highlighting realness, culture and relationships that everyone can relate to.”
