Tracie Hotchner


Tracie Hotchner's DOG TALK® (and Kitties, Too!) has been on WPPB for 12 years with over 575 consecutive shows. In 2010, the show won a Gracie® Award, the radio equivalent of an Oscar, as “Best entertainment and information program on local public radio.”

Her weekly call-in show, CAT CHAT®, was live on the Martha Stewart channel over Sirius/XM radio for 7 years. That channel was canceled in 2013 so Tracie launched her own pet talk podcast network, the Radio Pet Lady Network.  Her 10 “delightfully informative” shows are each co-hosted by leading veterinarians and other pet experts, including her weekly podcast of DOG TALK®.

Tracie's knowledge about every aspect of living with pets, which came from her background as an investigative reporter, resulted in her encyclopedic resources: THE DOG BIBLE: Everything Your Dog Wants You to Know and THE CAT BIBLE: Everything Your Cat Expects You to Know. Tracie has become known as a leading pet wellness advocate and a Thought Leader, particularly in canine and feline nutrition.
