Los Angeles’ REAL 92.3 is adding The Cruz Show hosted by J Cruz, to its afternoon program lineup Mondays through Saturdays beginning April 18. Landing J Cruz is a coup for iHeart. He joins REAL 92.3 from KPWR where he served as the lead morning show host on The Cruz Show. J Cruz will be joined by Executive Producer Jeff Garcia, DJ Lechero, and DJ Lezlee.
“iHeartMedia is all about attracting the very best on-air talent and I’m excited to add J Cruz to the growing list of super talents in our thriving Los Angeles market,” said Doc Wynter, Executive Vice President of Urban/Hip Hop Programming Strategy for iHeartMedia’s National Programming Group and Program Director for REAL 92.3. “Big Boy in the mornings and J Cruz in the afternoons — I get chills just saying it.”
“I couldn’t be more excited and grateful to join such a great group of legendary radio artists here at iHeartMedia’s REAL 92.3,” said J Cruz. “Hosting LA’s first afternoon hip-hop morning show with my incredible team and merging with radio’s biggest family is a game changer. A special thanks to iHeartMedia for providing me with a fresh new platform to connect with the Los Angeles urban community.”
