What is your home town? 805
My favorite thing about working in radio is having this platform to communicate with the community and to be able to express myself with a focus to entertain and talk about subjects that are of interest. Second, meeting artists I admire and being able to develop relationships/friendships with them. Also, the experience to work in the music/entertainment industry is exciting! …events. festivals, interacting with the public, and all the behind the scenes work. I love it all!
What is your favorite artist or band? Too many to choose from. My taste goes from Tupac-Chalino Sanchez-Kali Uchis-TheWeeknd-Beyonce-Kanye-Jhene Aiko-Rebelution-LadyGaga-J.Cole… music is universal.
If you could have dinner with any famous person, who would it be? Beyonce
What is your favorite food? Pizza. Yes pizza isn’t unique, IDC it’s soooo good! But also Mexican food.
What is your favorite thing to do when you are not on air? I like to recite lines from The Office at every & ANY chance I get. I find pleasure getting lost in art: drawing, painting, admiring art in all forms. Hiking, stress eating, judging people who like yellow Starbursts, & picking the slowest check out line at the grocery store are all things I’m also great at. Family time is also important to me. I LOVE to travel and experience other cultures! And last but not least God, gratitude and positivity are a major key in my life.
What do you love most about living on the Central Coast? Everything… It’s CALIFORNIA!
My name is Loui and I was born and raised in San Diego. I’m an authentic Mexican food lover, former Charger’s fan – currently a free agent searching for a new team – I love to travel and meet new people and also enjoy soccer, dancing salsa, and surfing.
My journey towards becoming a radio personality started when I was 16. I fell in love with our local morning radio shows and little did I know that they would inspire me to become a radio host in the future.
When I was 20, I landed a public speaking job. I got to talk about animals and quickly realized that I really enjoyed entertaining and speaking in front of people. So I decided to go to school for Communications and graduated from San Diego City College in 2014.
After over 11 years of public speaking I knew it was time for a change. I had a feeling that radio was the way to go since I loved it so much. Then my opportunity arrived when they announced that they needed a radio host on one of my local stations and they were going to do a contest to find a radio personality American Idol style! I had to submit a video and audio clip of myself, the videos where then posted on the website, and the top five people with the most votes got to do an on air audition. Ultimately, they picked me and I have been working in radio ever since!
I’m excited to be in a new city, to meet the community, and to be a part of The Beat’s morning show. See ya in the morning!
