TehachaPod welcomes new host
City of Tehachapi
August 20, 2022
The TehachaPod team from the City of Tehachapi welcomes Ashley Whitmore to the host table.
"We need to have a female presence on the podcast and Ashley has done a great job as a guest and co-host. What is most important is, our guests are very comfortable having a conversation with her," said Key Budge, TehachaPod host.
Ashley was twice a guest on the show providing updates on the city departments she manages, including the Tehachapi Municipal Airport. She was invited to sit in as a co-host earlier this year for the special S.T.O.L. aviation event podcast. Most recently Ashley has filled in for Budge, joining Clare Scotti for the weekly Wine & Brewery Entertainment Update show.
"When I look at our demographics at who is listening and following the City of Tehachapi, our social media audience is more than 60% female. When we launched the podcast two and a half years ago, we started with Greg Garrett, Corey Costelloe and me as the hosts. The podcast continues to evolve as we get community input and now its time to remove the term 'guest- host' and bring Ashley in on a regular basis," said Budge.
