Miguelito Gonzalez as “Handyman”
WSBS- Mega TV Channel 22 in Miami recently launched “Handyman,” a weekly lifestyle program hosted by comedian Miguelito Gonzalez, at 9 pm on Mondays. Gonzalez, as “Handyman,” promises to inspire Miami residents with comic relief and touching moments.
In each dramatic episode of “Handyman,” Gonzalez and his team of colorful handymen will work with a participant to remodel and redecorate a room in their home. Producers expect the modeling rejuvenation to touch the lives of the audience and the participants by providing uplifting inspiration and motivation to those less fortunate or in need. During the first episode, “Handyman” helped a child with a dream of becoming a professional skier, and a mother hoping for her son’s safe return from the war.
Gonzalez is a former member of the “Fonomemecos,” a Cuban entertainment troop. After defecting from Cuba, Gonzalez sought asylum in the Dominican Republic and shortly after arrived in the United States. Eventually he found his way back to the entertainment business.
In 1995, Gonzalez began a new phase in his career as a radio host for Spanish Broadcasting System’s WXJD, El Zol 95.7 on “El Show de la Mañana.” He then worked on a local Miami television show, “El Mikimbín de Miami,” where he fleshed out a number of characters based on his own life experiences. Following his television experience he returned to radio entertainment.
Spanish Broadcasting System, Inc. is one of the largest publicly traded Hispanic-controlled media and entertainment companies in the United States. SBS owns and operates 20 radio stations located in Hispanic markets such as New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, San Francisco and Puerto Rico. The Company also owns and operates Mega TV in Miami.
