Beto moves to KIOZ - AD says Goodbye

By Joe Nelson

Big News!

I guess that pretty much explains that. I did talk to Beto and he told SanDiegoRadio the following...
"When it comes to music I am a melting pot of all genres it ranges from Rock, Hip hop , Reggae to Banda. Growing up in South San Diego I always listened to Rock 105.3 so getting the opportunity to work at KIOZ is a dream come true. Equivalent to winning the lottery! Super excited , check me out weekdays 3P-7P my mom would love you.“
Thanks Beto. I am very happy for you! AD- best wishes for you and your future!!!

SanDiegoRadio at Padres Opening Day

By Joe Nelson

This is a two-parter...

First off, after hearing a couple times on Thursday that some were unsure if SanDiegoRadio is still up and running, yes ABSOLUTELY it is. My explanation was simply that there is nothing going on in radio right now. I still have my radar on and my birdies are still out there.
In times like these, I try to incorporate some 'fun stuff' in the meantime. I enjoy interviewing folks just as I have since day one by featuring them in The SanDiegoRadio Spotlight. I have sent out two requests to do so, and they agreed to do the Spotlight, but have not received word back since, so sometimes I am waiting for information to return to me.

Yes I am still here. I really appreciate everyone's interest in SanDiegoRadio. I couldn't imagine NOT doing it.

If you have anything, if you have job postings, send it my way!

And now on to baseball!
