~ Episode 21 - The co-host announcement!!!

The Kelly Manno Show is growing....by two VERY BIG feet!  Kelly welcomes her good buddy HOSS as her permanent co-host of the podcast. 

Kelly and Hoss met as baby interns at 105.7 The Point back in 1998.  Despite their 2 feet height difference and polar opposite tastes in music they became great friends.  As the years went by and jobs changed they lost touch.  Only to find each other again in 2001, at another radio station, this time Emmis Communications.  They bumped into each other in the kitchen one morning at 5:00am, Hoss tried to crack a joke, Kelly didn't think it was funny and has spent the next 10 years referring to him in her house as "that asshole Hoss" - they were in a fight in Kelly's head for nearly a decade and he had no idea. 
Through the magic of social media, and her husband's old man hockey team they became friends for a third time in 2015.  After co-hosting the show with her a few times she felt like he was a perfect fit.

A little about Hoss:  He is 7 feet tall.  He is fluent in sarcasm and Blues hockey.  His favorite band is Guns - n- Roses. He is the only child of 2 parents whom he adores. He has a girlfriend named Tori, and he loves spending time with her two kids.  He has worked in the music industry for nearly 10 years- he has lots of crazy stories about rockstars (he once almost had to fight Suge Knight in an elevator), but we're glad he didn't, and he is still alive today to join the show.

While Hoss joins the show as a permanent voice you will still hear many of your other favorite co-hosts as they continue to rotate in and out and join Kelly for whatever shenanigans she has planned for that week. 

And now for the SHOW!  Hoss played hooky his very first day of work...or he was trapped by a flood, whatever you want to believe :)  Luckily a special guest was already stopping by.  Her name is Marlana Hope, she is a St. Louis native who is making a name for herself in Los Angeles California as a writer.  

You've seen her work on shows such as Desperate Housewives, Friday Night Lights, Army Wives, Southland, and much more! She had great stories to tell, especially her run in with Jennifer Lawrence at a BBQ last year.
