Beginning on March 9, the special guest of the first episode -second season of the “Dishing With Patricia” video podcast will be beloved Philadelphia broadcast pioneer and WDAS radio personality Patty Jackson.
If the voice is warm, soulful, and sweet, it must belong to Patty Jackson, who was born in November, 1963 and raised in South Philadelphia. Launching her illustrious career as a 16-year-old morning announcer for her high school’s PA system, she went on to become a popular radio disc jockey at WSSJ in Camden, and Power 99 before arriving at WDAS. Patty also worked at Philadelphia’s country station WXTU, as well as WIOQ.
After spending a year co-hosting mornings at WIOQ, Patty returned to her home at WDAS. Her mid-day program, “Cafe 105” and “4-1-1” features are all considered mandatory to Philadelphia’s adult radio listeners! She can also be heard across the country via the iHeartRadio app.
Patty is currently the midday host at WDAS-FM from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. On Sunday mornings, you can hear her “Rewind” magazine show from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m., which covers everything from politics to entertainment and celebrity interviews. In addition, she hosts an oldies program, “The Wide Wonderful World of Butter,” every Sunday night from 7 p.m. to 12 midnight.
Patty’s warmth and conversational style are a standout in Philadelphia radio. Her entertainment reporting has also earned her the title of entertainment writer for the Philadelphia Tribune.
In addition to her media work, Patty is very involved in community events, church activities, and civic endeavors. She donates her time and talent to host many community events and fundraisers, including the American Diabetes Association and the United Negro College Fund.
Patty has also chosen to give back by giving the youth a platform during her weekly WDAS-FM podcast, “Patty and the Millennials.”
With all the work that she is committed to, the “foodie” in Patty has found time to host MyNewPhilly’s desert series, “Phillycious.” The video episodes can be found on the Internet.
Whether she’s chatting it up with the stars or talking about the spicy seafood salad that the WDAS staff begs her to make, Patty Jackson’s voice is undeniably one of the favorite female adult voices in the Philadelphia market!
