Julio Flores

Julio Flores started his radio career at KSMA/KSNI Santa Maria doing weekends on an Adult Standards AM and a Country FM. "I would take the Greyhound bus there every weekend and lose $50 after bus fare and motelstay just to be on-the-air".

After three months, Julio took an opening at KGMG 102.1 FM San Diego. He stayed there for four years as the station switched formats three times (AC to Hot AC, then oldies, then Classic Rock). Then Julio started doing weekends at KWIZ 96.7 FM, Santa Ana, CA while continuing his night full-time gig at KGMG San Diego.

Then he picked up Middays/APD/MD at KBET AM Santa Clarita, CA. That didn't last too long since Julio picked up fill-ins At KMGX San Fernando and weekends at classic rock KLSX 97.1 FM, Los Angeles. "It was great to work at an LA station." said Julio. "So at that time I was at four stations at the same time, KLSX, KMGX, KBET and KWIZ."

Julio then joined the air staff at KTWV 94.7 FM Los Angeles, doing weekends on "The Wave". He retained excellent rating (#2 cume and AQH) several ratings periods during his four years there. Then Julio got the call to work weekends and fill-ins at KRLA 1110 AM Los Angeles.

Then Gene Autry debuted a new format at his 101.9 signal, Triple-A KSCA FM Glendale/Los Angeles, known as Southern California's Album Alternative. With all the hoopla of that format dying, Julio took the Triple-A format to KLSX for their music weekends. Later, KLSX was sold to Infinity. "The bummer was that KLSX was gonna flip all music and I was going to get afternoon drive but within Infinity's LA cluster they didn't want any format to be closely related." So the station would be stay FM Talk. Julio was reassigned to producing the Howard Stern show and Image Production Director at KRLA.

 When the Internet radio explosion started in 2000, he left KLSX/KRLA to go to to be VP of Programming. In 2001 he started weekends at KOST 103.5 FM Los Angeles.

In 2004, Julio re-launched his syndication company Western Front Radio Networks, which he originally started when he was part of the KBPK air staff in the 80s. His company provides programming and imaging for Smooth Jazz, Alternative, Triple-A, and sports stations across the USA and Canada.

 In addition Julio is currently producing The Third Shift with Chris Plank and doing production at Fox Sports Radio since 2005.
