After a long and successful run during drive-time radio, as well as with Gannett Media, Jeff Ward brought his self-described “barstool for thousands” to Hot Pie Media’s Podcast Network, in Spring 2021. His fiercely independent and irreverent style has earned him fans well beyond Austin with his podcast quickly becoming the most downloaded podcast on all of Hot Pie Media and USA Today platforms. In addition, sports fans can hear him every Tuesday from 1-2pm. on 104.9 FM “The Horn.” He’s a five-time winner of the Austin’s Chronicle “Best Of” Reader’s Poll, he’s also been featured on the KVUE (television) special “Austin Icons,” and he’s been a guest panelist on the syndicated political show “Beyond The Beltway.” In addition to his talk show success, he’s had a long career in academia. With multiple degrees from The University of Texas, he’s held the title of Lecturer in the School of Business at St. Edward’s University, and Adjunct Professor at The University of Texas. Most recently, Ward served on a distinguished panel to discuss the future of sports media, presented by the University of Texas. His “How to sell your ideas” speech has been popular on the speaker’s circuit for years. In addition, he’s served on the Board of the mobile data company Audiodellic, and been the keynote speaker and host of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards. His ties to The University of Texas are extensive. He’s been nominated as an Outstanding Young Texas Ex, and while a student at The University of Texas, he was a four-year Letterman in football, a team captain, a member of the Athletics Director’s Academic Honor Roll, a three-time all-conference player, and a two-time All-American. He’s among the top five all-time leading scorers at The University of Texas, and he’s the NCAA record holder for game-winning field goals.
