Austin Radio Host Secures $2 Mill For App


J.B. Hager, morning show host of Classic 105.3 (K287FG/KTXX-HD4) in Austin, is part of a development group that has created the video-sharing app Ferris. Hager and his team have now secured $2 million in funding from Upfront Ventures and Allen DeBevoise, according to the Austin Business Journal. The app can be used to merge different videos from the same occasion into one video.

Hager was part of Austin's famous J.B. & Sandy morning show, a partnership that lasted 20 years, before dissolving earlier this year. The Ferris app was developed in 2014, when Hager and on-air partner Sandy McIlree were between radio jobs.
