KLMO 98.9 FM has launched a new show honoring Hispanic Heritage Month. The “April Monterrosa Show” has kicked off its first season this month and is LIVE on the FM airwaves, on the KLMO 98.9 FM Facebook LIVE, and on its app every Saturday at 9 a.m.
April Monterrosa hosts the show and will highlight unique Tejanos from the Southside of San Antonio and throughout Texas who are making a difference in entertainment, business, music, and their communities.
Monterrosa is the publisher of Live from the Southside Magazine, the first woman-owned Southside-San Antonio, Texas-based publication. She has been recognized as an influential Latina in San Antonio by KSAT12 News and honored by the 87th Texas Legislature for her achievements, civic leadership, and community advocacy.
“KLMO-Alamo Tejano 98.9 & 92.1 FM wanted to tell the stories of our Tejanos not only in the music industry but also those doing other great things in our city and surrounding areas. As much as April is involved in the community and how committed she is to storytelling in her publication, we knew she was a great choice,” said Homer Lopez, General Manager of Lopez Broadcasting.
“Through my publication and platform and being “boots on the ground” in my community, I have been able to share so many great stories and connect people with others and to opportunities. I believe my new show will be another source and avenue to continue doing that,” mentions Monterrosa.
