“Rocio is more than a radio personality; she is a mother, writer and talented performer,” said Gabriel Vázquez, SVP & Head of Talent, TúYo Media. “She is the perfect personality to launch our TuYo Radio platform on DASH. She earned her “La Peligrosa” nickname – ‘the dangerous one’ - for her ability to speak freely about taboo topics that most people are afraid to address. She represents strong Latinas and has proven time and time again to be a leader in this male-dominated business. Rocio’s millions of fans admire her for being imperfect, sincere and accepting her flaws. We know the DASH listeners will be drawn to her.”
Sandoval has had both a successful radio and singing career in Latin entertainment. Prior to the birth of her son she released four successful CDs, toured throughout the U.S. and Mexico, and was the host of one of Spanish radios top daily shows. She left radio and music six years ago to raise her son and is now entering back into entertainment with TuYo. The re-emergence of “La Peligrosa,” on TuYo Radio on DASH will showcase a woman who is stronger, mature and more determined than ever to dominate radio once more.
