Have you met Josefa Salinas? Josefa is one of the few air on-personalities in the radio industry that can boast successful runs in adult contemporary, urban, urban AC, hip-hop, jazz, news, talk and crossover formats. Beginning her radio career in the Bay area in Northern California she made the move to the “big time” and larger market in L.A. where she worked at Power 106 for 5 years and became known as “Angelita de la Noche”. Now she uses that famous voice in her new role as talk show host on KTLK 1150.
Josefa most recently signed on as one of the newest, and much need voices on talk radio. You can hear Josefa on weekdays 9am-12pm on Clear Channel’s KTLK 1150. Her convictions, engaging topics and her booming personality emanating through the radio and is truly welcome voice on the talk scene, making her a hit once again among millions of new and continuing fans.
In addition to her new gig on KTLK 1150 Josefa continues her position at Hot 92.3, where for almost 12 years she has held a variety of on-air talent roles and where she currently works in the news anchor position as well as hosting a highly acclaimed The Community Review show every Sunday morning from 7am-8am.
Finally Clear Channel, the largest owner of full-power AM and FM radio stations and twelve on XM Satellite Radio, has decided to add the Latino voice to the all talk radio format. In addition to Josefa, former NBC reporter David Cruz has the drive time slot weekdays 3-6PM.
Earlier this year Clear Channel unveiled their DiverseLA initiative, we suspect in answer to recent scrutiny by Latino advocacy groups for the lack of diversity and claims of hate talk against Latinos on their radio station KFI. Their initiative is geared towards giving Los Angeles an opportunity to hear diverse voices and viewpoints. Josefa’s voice is certainly that. She talks about universal topics with a fresh perspective rarely heard on talk radio — the Latino perspective. You can check out her “talk” on weekdays 9am-12pm on Clear Channel’s KTLK 1150 and join the conversation!
