(KPWR-FM, Power 106 and 93.5 KDAY – Los Angeles) Meruelo Media announced today that World Famous DJ and Music Specialist, Emmanuel “E-Man” Coquia has been promoted to Director of Programming and Content for Meruelo Media. Under this new title, E-Man will head the programming and music content for Meruelo Media’s Power 106 (KPWR-FM), 93.5 KDAY and oversee the initial stages of the new CALI 93.9 (KLLI-FM) Latin Rhythmic format. E-Man will continue reporting to Meruelo Media President and COO, Otto Padron.
Since taking over as interim program director for Power 106 and 93.5 KDAY on February 1, 2019, E-Man has been a driver of change and new ideas. He reimagined Power 106’s annual Hip Hop music festival “Powerhouse” this past May transforming it into the Standing-Room-Only “Lift Off” new music fest. E-man personally recruited Nick Cannon and together they created the new Power 106 morning show; he also overhauled the 93.5 KDAY Morning Show with Romeo and added Cece to the mix; today, he is an instrumental player in the developmental stage and launch of the all-new Cali 93.9.
“E-Man is Our-man!” stated Otto Padron, President and COO of Meruelo Media, “… after an exhaustive nationwide search that attracted some of the most talented PD’s in America – the choice was clear,” Otto continued, “E-Man had a sensible plan and a vision that aligned perfectly with our goals to disrupt the industry with new hyper local LA content. Above all, he had boundless confidence strengthened by a time-built arsenal of industry respect from the labels, artist, management, colleagues and fellow Meruelo Media team members!”
E-Man said, “I’m truly excited to continue to lead the incredible winning teams at our two iconic Hip Hop radio stations in Los Angeles; Power 106 & 93.5 KDAY. I am also enjoying every minute assembling and developing the new Cali 93.9 team. I would like to thank Alex Meruelo, Luis Armona, Otto Padron, Tommy Trujillo, and the entire Meruelo Media family for this incredible opportunity. My family and I are very blessed and humbled. To be a part of three major radio stations in Los Angeles that play Hip-Hop: Current, Classic, & Latin Hip-Hop/Reggaeton is a very dope feeling, especially as a fan of these music genres.”
