Meet Aslan Hodges
Is it football season yet? He swears those were his first words but his parents say otherwise.
Aslan Hodges comes to WTVY after stints in Montana and most recently Jackson, Mississippi where his sportscasts were awarded with multiple top honors by the Associated Press. In addition to his duties as Sports Director, Aslan was also host of a college football pregame show on Jackson’s ESPN Radio affiliate and a sideline reporter for the Mississippi High School Activities Association.
Aslan has covered everything from state championships to the Super Bowl but his most memorable experience was covering the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska by himself for 13 days on only 3 days worth of clothing – it’s a good story he promises. He’s experienced the unique passions of SEC fans while covering the Egg Bowl but hears things might be a little more intense out here.
He would like to say that contrary to popular belief Auburn fans, he’s not an Alabama homer, and Bama fans, he’s not an Auburn homer – he is a proud graduate of Florida State University. Aslan is excited to be an easy drive from his hometown of Tampa, a stone’s throw from his alma mater and to provide the Wiregrass with the most comprehensive coverage of local sports.
You can catch Aslan weekdays at 5:30, 6:00 and 10:00 p.m. on WTVY and in the mornings on ESPN 107.7. E-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your extraordinary sports achievements…and to let him know where the best BBQ in town is or where he can roll his mat out for some yoga.
