About Jody


Born and raised in Fort Worth, Jody graduated from Paschal High School before attending Abilene Christian University. A member of the Texas Radio Hall of Fame, he was also the original voice of AT&T Stadium. Not bad for a guy who started on TV at age 13 by playing Frankenstein on a show called The Museum of Horrors. Along the way Jody has also anchored television newscasts and talk shows, covered hurricanes and historic events, been in a few movies, done a little theater, announced rodeos, won a few awards – and once got fired three times by the same person.

He loves deep sea fishing, hunting, motorcycles, the outdoors, cooking, gardening, building stuff and sports – and he remains constant in his search for the perfect brisket. Jody and his beloved Fiona live with a bunch of hippies in East Dallas, where one of these days he’ll finish all the chores on his list. A sought-after speaker and emcee, Dean has three ridiculously awesome children he gives thanks for every day, and actually likes his teenage daughter’s music. Recently, he welcomed his first grandchild. She calls him “Poppy”, and you can call him “mush”.
