Actor and writer Leslie Jordan will soon host his own weekly show on Apple Music’s Country radio station. The 65-year-old Jordan is well-known for his numerous roles in movies and TV shows, including Will & Grace.
As first reported by People, “Hunker Down Radio with Leslie Jordan” will be co-hosted by Travis Howard, a Nashville songwriter. The show will mostly feature country music. The show will air weekly on Sundays at 2 p.m. ET beginning Sunday, February 28.
In addition to opening up about his life on the show, the Chattanooga, Tennessee, native — along with his co-host, Nashville songwriter Travis Howard — will no doubt give listeners some of his signature sassy one-liners, as well as deliver playlists filled with country, gospel and blues tracks.
Jordan began his career in 1986 and has been working in the movie and television industry ever since. He says he’s never hosted a radio show, until now.
“I’ve done Broadway. I was in The Help. I’ve done feature films. I’ve done so much television. I’ve done every god-awful sitcom known to man, forever, for 30 or 40 years. I’ve never done a radio show,” he says in Hunker Down Radio’s debut episode.
Jordan has been passing time using his Instagram account to share fun videos about his work and personal life. Jordan currently has 5.6 million followers on the social network.
The Apple Music page for Jordan’s show describes the show (and Jordan) as follows:
