The mission is to support and celebrate the hospitality industry as well as independent restaurants. Ed Hitzel interviews local, regional and national guests from the food and beverage and travel industries including well-known chefs, owners and hospitality celebrities.

Guest hosts

The guest host is different each week. The role of the guest host is to help Ed interview the guests and run the show. The guest host need not be in the hospitality business, but should have an interest in the business. If you would like to be considered for guest hosting, send Ed an email.


Several quirky, unique and award winning segments are heard throughout the show:

  • Gary Monterosso on beer. The nationally known beer writer began his career right here.
