iHEARTMEDIA Top 40 WKTU/NEW YORK has named twin duo LULU and LALA as nighttime hosts, effective NOVEMBER 14th. The 7p-midnight show will feature the duo’s unique take on pop culture news and fun antics with listeners along with special celebrity guest interviews and KTU’s unique blend of today’s hits and throwbacks.
Twin sisters MARISSA and MARIANELA GONZALEZ, better known as “LULU & LALA,” began to captivate the Latin market in 2007 as part of The LUIS JIMENEZ Morning Show on UNIVISION’s X96.3 in NEW YORK. Six years later, they became co-hosts of TY LOVES NY on 92.3 NOW. Most recently the sisters hosted an afternoon show on HITS 97.3/MIAMI.
“We’re excited to welcome LULU and LALA back home,” WKTU PD ROB MILLER said. “Their amazing energy, positivity and charismatic personalities paired with their ability to reach a broad audience on-air and through social platforms make them the perfect choice to keep NEW YORK CITY feeling good all night long on KTU.”
“Someone get me a Metro card because I’m taking the A train straight to KTU! I’m so excited for this new adventure,” said LULU. “Thank you to iHEART for believing in us and giving us the chance to go back to the city where we started. THE BIG APPLE better get ready for us!”
“NYC is the greatest city in the world and I’m excited to say that I’ll be working in it,” said LALA. “Muchas gracias to iHEART for giving us this amazing opportunity. Double the trouble, but double the fun! Get ready NYC, we’re coming to take over!”
