Byron Gonzalez was born in Guatemala City and raised in Los Angeles. He started to pursue radio broadcasting during his time at Santa Monica College. This decision turned into a passion that carried him to further his education at Cal State Northridge. Soon after graduating, 88.5 FM offered him a position as the Brand Manager of our HD station the Latin Alt HD3.
As brand manager, he has assumed the role of program, music, & social media director for the station. In this role, Byron has dedicated himself to exposing the multiethnic communities of Los Angeles to a strong selection of music in Spanish and English from established, emerging and independent artists with heritage stemming from Latin America, Spain and Brazil.
Other interests: Saturday Night Live, Comedy, bike riding, cooking, the cosmos and petting random dogs at dog parks.
