99.1 The IE’s Hottest Hit Music Station (KGGI-FM), announced today the debut of the new “The Tino Cochino Radio Morning Show,” effective Monday, April 11. “The Tino Cochino Radio Morning Show” will broadcast weekdays from 6 – 10 a.m.
“Tino Cochino Radio Morning Show” is the definition of personality-driven radio. Tino got his start in radio at the age of 13 and has since turned TCR into the #1 English-speaking Latino-hosted radio show in America. The show is cohosted by Serina Perez, DJ Nicasio, and executive producer Matt.
“The graduation from nights to mornings on KGGI is one of those moments I’ll forever remember and appreciate,” Tino says. “The call letters are heritage and the team is full of all-stars. There are, without a doubt, big shoes to fill, but my team and I have never been afraid of hard work and can’t wait to connect even deeper with The IE.”
“Tino Cochino and his crew will bring energy, passion and new excitement to the Inland Empire! Not to mention, Tino is a social media beast, checking all boxes that listeners are looking for in a morning show,” says Kid Jay, Senior VP of Programming for iHeartMedia Riverside.
As part of the lineup changes, Evelyn Erives, long-time morning show host and a 99.1 KGGI staple, will move to the mid-day slot and broadcast from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Letty B moves to the 1 – 4 p.m. slot and Kid Jay will broadcast from 4 – 7 p.m.
