Nighttime Heats Up With the Return of Austin After Hours

Taylor Ellison kicks off season two with an impressive lineup of guests

There doesn’t seem to be a shortage of innovative and inspiring individuals when it comes to Austin, and Taylor Ellison is on a mission to discover the stories behind their local roots and how they are shaping the Austin community.

Inspired by conversations around culture and the pursuit of living well, Ellison shares empowering stories with a local angle. Several members of Austin royalty will be joining Austin After Hours this season, including recent Chronicle guest editor Ethan Hawke. And since this show is on late night, don’t be surprised to see a laid-back Ellison sharing a cocktail or two with her guests and getting personal.

Season two of Austin After Hours starts with a bang, featuring Andy Roddick (pro tennis champ and founder of the Andy Roddick Foundation), Kristen Kish (Top Chef winner and head chef at Arlo Grey), and Kelly Wynne Ferguson (designer and CEO of Kelly Wynne). Catch Austin After Hours every Friday on CBS after The Late Late Show With James Corden.
