“I’m thrilled to be on-air in Chicago, the third largest market of the United States Chicago,” said Carreto. “I couldn’t be happier to join the iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) Chicago and El PatrÃ³n 95.5 team.”
Arceo, also known as La MuÃ±equita, graduated from Columbia College with a degree in radio production. She has past experience in programming, production, on-air and voice-over work with companies such as Spanish Broadcasting System, Telemundo and HBO Latino. Since 2011 Arceo has been at iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) Media and Entertainment Chicago and is currently Production Director and can also be heard on-air on El PatrÃ³n 95.5 FM discussing important community topics on Sunday mornings.
“I am very excited and thankful to be part of the 95.5 El PatrÃ³n on-air team,” said Arceo. “I’m ready to take on this great adventure, be part of El PatrÃ³n’s success and share tons of music weeknights … ¡AquÃ nomas 95.5 El PatrÃ³n!”
