Talaya Trigueros Stepping Down After 30 Years


She’s been the Queen of Midday in Los Angeles for three decades, winning a slew of awards and ratings battles with 94.7 The Wave. Trigueros has also been off-stage announcer for numerous high-profile events such as the SAG Awards, the Imagen Awards, and the Los Angeles Theater Center Annual Gala. Her collection of awards includes the GENII Award for Excellence in Radio Broadcasting from the Alliance for Women In Media, a National Hispanic Media Coalition Award, and special recognition from the Los Angeles County and City Board of Supervisors, including an Angelus Award.

Trigueros’ first big break came with an opportunity to work on-air at KRE in Berkeley playing jazz and Latin Jazz. When the format evolved into what became known as Quiet Storm and the call letters were changed to KBLX, she was offered a full-time midday shift. When KUTE in Los Angeles adopted the Quiet Storm format, Trigueros was the perfect fit. In LA she thrived, working briefly at KNX-FM, KOCN-FM, and eventually at 94.7 The Wave.

Her last day is April 18.
