Miami, Florida – A comedy show with DJ’s Gilberto Reyes and Miguelito Gonzalez began airing recently on Miami radio station WXDJ El Zol 95.7 FM. “Fonomanía con Gilberto y Miguelito” will run daily Monday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Show selections will air Saturdays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Gilberto Reyes and Miguelito Gonzalez started their radio career several years ago in Miami on El Zol 95.7 FM, and became quite popular. Their radio show evolved into a late night variety program on a local TV station. It was during this time that their catch-phrase “Metiendo Mikimbin” became a friendly Cuban greeting among show listeners. Following a recent reunion, Miguelito and Gilberto decided to embark on the second chapter of their professional partnership.
“I truly believe that Gilberto and Miguelito’s wit and enthusiasm will propel this show to great heights. They are a charismatic duo that possesses the natural ability to connect with the human spirit, and Miamians are in for a real treat with the market’s funniest new afternoon drive radio program,” said Jackie Nosti-Combo, vice president and general manager, SBS.
“Gilberto and I were never really apart. We owed it to ourselves to pursue some individual opportunities that were available to us. I have an individual contract with Mega TV as host of the home improvement show ‘Handyman’ but once we were given the opportunity to collaborate again, we both knew it was time,” said Gonzalez.
“This is the next step in our professional journey. We both love Miami, love our audience, and love to make people laugh. I can’t wait to get started. I think everyone will soon find out that Miguelito and I are back in a big way,” said Reyes.
In 1995, Gonzalez became 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.
