Enrique “Kike” Cruz and other figures join the changes on the radio waves

In general, new beginnings are accompanied by changes, and some radio stations are reliable proof of this premise. The incipient 2024 began with some moves in its offers to radio listeners towards an election period that begins with primary contests.

Part of those talent movements that have come to light in recent days, many have to do with the birth of the conglomerate. Wapa Media on September 6, when the Puerto Rican channel Wapa Television acquired the stations WKAQ 580AM and KQ 105 FM.

One of those moves is that of the political analyst Enrique “Kike” Cruzwho claims to feel very happy about the new stage he is experiencing, after having worked for 16 years in Notiuno 630 and culminate his duties in “Analisis 630”, whose resignation he presented on December 22, effective last December 31.

Starting this Wednesday, January 10, the communicator will appear from Monday to Friday at the same time, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.but from the radio waves of WKAQ 580, where he came to work in 2006 with the program “Cara o Cruz.”

Changes like this do not happen overnight, as Cruz highlights, in clear reference to his professional development, which began at the airline. American Airlines for a period of 23 years. One thing has led to another, he says, and new opportunities have arisen from the crises, such as the pandemic, which led him in 2021 to be one of the official co-hosts of the television program “I know everything”from Wapa TV.

According to the communicator, each crisis presents you with challenges, in which you give everything for that company, but at the same time that crisis opens other doors for you. Likewise, he specified that for both American Airlines and Notiuno, he gave soul, life and heart.

“The fact that Wapa developed me as a talent to get to where I have gotten on television, those things lead you to others. In that journey, the fact that Wapa bought WKAQ and then this opportunity presented itself, because everything – in my opinion – has its origin in television, because the panorama of me as a talent, of me as an analyst and of me as person. I never had plans to leave Notiuno. I mean, my plan was never to go to WKAQ because the owner was Univision. And when Univision was there, I had already been there in 2006. But, when the owner changed, Wapa developed me as a talent, Wapa opened up a range of other opportunities for me, so I decided to make the change,” he explained to El Nuevo Dia. .

For the new program, whose name has not yet been revealed, he has conceptualized a “much more dynamic and with many more interactions” format, in a year that promises a lot of content, with events and political panoramas that did not occur after the elections.

Likewise, he will have several of the resources with which he previously worked, such as the political communication strategist Daniel “El Machete” Hernandez, Senator Tomas Rivera Schatz and the former president of the House of Representatives, Ronnie Jarabo, among others who are yet to be confirmed. .

For whom television is an unmatched medium, but radio is fundamental, all the opportunities presented complement each other, as has also been the tempering of the use of social networks, where it also informs and connects with the people. It is with the same attitude that has distinguished him that he enters this new stage, where, as he describes, a solid block of talent will be presented to the radio listeners.

“When you decide to make a change in your life, you think about it, you evaluate it and you look at the options. People call it change. Many people think that everything has to do with money and that is not the case. Money is a fundamental part too, I’m not going to deny it, but it also has to do with your opportunities, it also has to do with how you feel.”said Cruz, who highlighted the figure of his colleague, the political analyst, as an important component in his change. Jay Fonsecahaving been requesting for some time to return to the 12:00 noon schedule.

Precisely, since this Monday, January 8, the presenter of the television program “Data is data”, started his radio program on WKAQ 580AMcalled “Jay Fonseca at 580″, in his old schedule, from the 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm It was in August 2020 that his program began airing at 5:00 in the afternoon.

“The changes are only beginning. “We come with new strategies and new resources, but that is coming soon,” The lawyer expressed through social networks during the night of Sunday, to notify his followers about his “new adventure” at the time that Until last week the teacher had Pink Angelwho had stated that he had not been able to reach an understanding with the new management of the station, Wapa Media.

It should be noted that Rosa, in recent days, announced her departure from Wapa TV to make the jump to Telemundowhere he participates in“5PM Telenews”, from Monday to Friday, in the segment “Things as they are.” In an interview with this newspaper, the former senator acknowledged that with his decision he left behind an important means in his career. The change of station and television channel will allow the communicator to resume some personal projects such as his podcast.

Although the political expert has not revealed the details of the new station that will host him, the question that now arises is, “Could it be that Angel Rosa is going to Notiuno to occupy Cruz’s space?” The official announcement could be known in the coming days, as he himself said.
