Kyle Hudson, West Chester’s own digital media multi-hyphenate, has successfully turned many of his creative ideas into viable businesses.
When the Cranford, NJ native moved to West Chester over a decade ago, he worked at Penn’s Table with no intention of going into business. Yet, it was the diner that carved his path. Old photos on the walls inspired his idea for Time Machine Tours, a mobile app that uses GPS to dis-play historical images where they were taken to give the illusion of looking into the past. A healthy start-up culture paired with a timely win on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?provided funding to build a prototype.
When WCHE’s former general manager Bill Mason came into the restaurant for coffee, Hudson regularly bugged him fora gig. His initiative paid off, and he started producing his own radio shows. Since 2013, Hudson has produced the weekly World’s Finest Show, focused on comics,video games, and tech, and launched Love@ First Listen, a radio dating show.
While Hudson’s work in the entertainment spheres continues to generate economic impact, his political aspirations made headlines. Inspired to action after the 2016 election, Hudson ran for Mayor in 2017. Although he didn’t win, he’s currently on the Opioid Task Force and holds a position as one of the Democratic Committee People for Ward 7 He and his wife Leslie just welcomed their first daughter, Ava, to the borough.
