Premiere Networks announced today that Suzette Rodriguez has been named a new co-host on The Johnjay & Rich Show. Based at iHeartMedia CHR KZZP (104.7 KISS FM)/Phoenix, Rodriguez joins hosts Johnjay, Rich and Kyle.
“Suzette is the perfect fit for our morning show family,” shared Johnjay Van Es. “She’s unpredictable, unfiltered, and she’s also got that feisty Latina attitude that reminds me of my upbringing. She brings out the loco in me!”
“Suzette brings her incredible spirit and energy every time she speaks,” added Rich Berra. “The listeners love her REALNESS and charming side. She’s like the little sister we want to impress, and annoy, in equal parts. We’re happy to have her join the madness.”
“When I was asked to be a fourth member on The Johnjay and Rich Show, I freaked out!,” shared Rodriguez. “I’ve always listened to the show, and everyone I know listens to the show. I’m beyond grateful and excited to join an amazing team. I’m ready to learn from the best and start a new journey.”
Born in Tucson, Rodriguez got her break in radio at the age of 19 while working as a board operator at KOHT (Hot 98.3), where she later transitioned to hosting duties in afternoon drive. After graduating from the University of Arizona, Rodriguez moved to Phoenix and took over the afternoon drive program on KZZP. During that time, she filled in for The Johnjay & Rich Show’s Kyle, who was on maternity leave last summer, and she quickly became a favorite among listeners. In addition to daily hosting duties, Rodriguez hosts Raw Talks with Suzette on iHeartRadio. Fans can follow @RadioSuzette on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.
