iHEARTMEDIA Urban AC WVAZ (V103)/CHICAGO will keep JOE SOTO as host of Afternoons from 2-7p.
“I’m proud to have JOE SOTO take the reins of afternoon drive on V103,” said Dir./Urban Programming DERRICK BROWN. “I’ve known JOE for over 25 years and worked with him on several occasions, most directly at V103 for almost a decade. He’s a proud son of CHICAGO, a hilariously talented theatre-of-the-mind entertainer, and die-hard CUBS fan. I’m most impressed with his non-stop commitment to uplifting our community from our gun turn-in programs to youth baseball camp.”
SOTO, a 36-year veteran, is most familiar to CHICAGOLAND listeners as host of “The Real Show” and “Back in the Day” on V103. He previously co-hosted mornings on sister station WGCI.
“The opportunity to host afternoon drive on V103 is an honor and a privilege,” said SOTO. “It is truly one of our nation's great radio stations. Thanks to DERRICK BROWN for his incredible guidance and belief in me. Thanks to iHEARTMEDIA/CHICAGO Region President MATT SCARANO and SVP/Programming TOMMY AUSTIN for their constant support. I must also acknowledge the legendary DOUG BANKS. He was a teacher, mentor and friend. There will never be another DOUG BANKS. The V103 listeners are like family members. They are the most important part of what I do every day. I'm just a kid from K-Town on CHICAGO's great west side living the dream!”
