Chuy Gomez

Chuy Gomez has one of the most recognizable voices in the Bay Area. For over 20 years,  Chuy had been blessing the Bay with a unique blend of personality, humor, and music on 106 KMEL in San Francisco until he was unceremoniously let go recently.  Currently, Chuy along with his longtime partner can be found on 105.7/100.7 FM.  Chuy can also be seen on television every afternoon hosting the California Music Channel.   

Chuy has come a long way since his early days. Chuy grew up in South San Francisco, where he got hooked on radio at age 5, requesting songs on local Spanish-language stations. As a teenager, he spent most of his time DJing at local parties and dances. He got his start in radio on KSOL, San Mateo. Later when KSOL/KYLD Mancow joined the station as morning show personality, he saw Chuy's charisma and quickly added him to the morning show line up. Mancow had all sorts of tasks in store for Chuy, including the infamous Bay Bridge traffic hold up, a radio stunt that still has people asking about it. But Chuy (aka "Chu-Dog") was never meant to stay in the background, as longtime listeners of KMEL will attest; he has been a solo personality there for more than 15 years. "He was born and raised here, has a good personality and brings that all onto the radio," said Sana G, KMEL afternoon jock. "He's an inspiration for everyone." 

After working for KSOL (later KYLD), Chuy moved to KMEL to take the night jock position. He quickly became one of the station's most popular personalities. When the afternoon slot became available it was all his. Chuy's afternoon show included appearances from some of the biggest names in music and entertainment. KMEL's afternoon drive ratings shot through the roof and Chuy's popularity continued to grow. 

In 2002, Chuy got the chance to move to morning drive. "I basically take the same approach to doing mornings that I'd take to doing any other show. I do my best to keep my listeners happy and hope they enjoy listening to the radio when I'm on," says Chuy. In 2008, Chuy celebrated 15 years on-air at KMEL. His 15-year run on KMEL is one of the longest in the Bay Area and a rarity on youth-oriented urban stations. Indeed, it seems as though Chuy's listeners are very happy. His loyal audience makes him a part of their lives every day because they love to wake up with Chuy in the morning on 106 KMEL. (source: www.oldskoolcafe.com)
