Troy Hughes

For 20 years, Troy Hughes has lived and breathed radio.

At the age of 15, Troy started doing weekends at his hometown radio station, Texas 99.1 KNES.

While attending Texas A&M University, he served as the #1 rated night jock in Bryan-College Station on The Rock Station KTSR 92 under the name “Tommy Sledge.” In 1999, Troy made his way to Top 40 radio powerhouse, 106.1 KISS-FM, where he was named in a list of “Ones To Watch” by Billboard Magazine. After only 1 year, Troy was offered a job on the nationally syndicated show Kidd Kraddick In the Morning; serving as the program’s Imaging Director/On-Air Personality for the next 7 years and for their 70+ markets.

In 2007, Troy left KKITM to take a position with CBS Radio Dallas and in 2009 started working as a Producer for 105.3 THE FAN. Today, Troy is the Producer/On-Air Personality for New School with Shan and RJ and plays an active on-air role with various segments including “What’s Trending in DFW,” “Yo! Roger Raps!,” “Man Card Court” and “Houston Sucks.”

Whatever time he’s NOT devoting to radio, Troy spends it with his wife, Cindy, their children, Hunter, Avyn, and Harper.
