Jody Oehler hosts “Happy Hour with Jody Oehler”, which can be heard weekdays from 4-6 PM on ESPN Tucson 1490 and 104.9 FM. His passion for sports radio started in college, he’s a 2003 graduate of the University of Arizona, where he was involved in both the campus television and radio stations.
Upon graduation, Jody worked part time for several Tucson radio stations, filling in as sports anchor and sports talk host. In 2005, he was hired to host Happy Hour, which then aired from 5-6 PM on 1490 the Fan. Operating out of a converted janitorial closet that had only enough room for Jody and his call screener to work back to back, the show somehow became an integral part of the Tucson sports scene.
In 2007, Happy Hour expanded to 4-6 and moved to a much larger, nicer studio. Since then, Happy Hour has become Tucson’s top sports talk show which is good for him since his only viable skill is talking into a microphone. Also, he realizes he looks nothing like he sounds - that should take care of roughly 65% of the emails.
Jody has been dating his girlfriend for over 5 years. At this point, girlfriend is not the right word but partner gives the wrong impression and significant other sounds like a diagnosis.
In his spare time, he enjoys playing golf, softball, basketball, hiking and the obligatory spending time with family.
