Biography

Luis Jiménez was born March 26, 1971 andis a radio host in New York City known for his Spanish-language program The Luis Jimenez Show in La Kalle 105.9 FM.

Jimenez was referred to La Mega's management as a suitable candidate for hosting a Spanish-language radio show in New York City and moved there in 1993. He started to host the show called El Vacilón de la Mañana, on La Mega radio station 97.9. The program's first airing occurred on August 9, 1993.

Since February 21, 2007, Luis Jimenez started producing his own show "The Luis Jimenez Show." "The Luis Jimenez Show" made it to NYC early in 2008 and it has gained a lot of fans and popularity since then, becoming #1 in the market in August.

For more than a decade, millions of radio listeners have woken up early in the morning to laugh along with the Spanish radio superstar, Luis Jimenez. With his recent move to media giant Univision, Jimenez will brings his special brand of irreverent humor to an even bigger audience. The Luis Jimenez Show is the best way to wake up in the mornings, with the most popular radio morning host in the United States. The show is edgy and makes listeners laugh while at the same time getting the latest, wacky news from around the world. The show provides a daily fix of comedy, song parodies, celebrity interviews and daily topics.

Over the course of 13 years on the air, Jimenez' show, "El Vacilón de la Mañana," grew to become the No. 1 morning show in the New York market, and the most listened to Spanish radio morning program in the U.S. It was syndicated in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, and heard worldwide on the show's website, elvacilon.com, which also became the number one radio morning show online.

With impeccable comedic timing, Jimenez interacts with outrageous callers, as well as his own colorful morning crew, and a stellar guest list of celebrities including Jennifer Lopez , Shakira, Jimmy Smits, Geraldo Rivera, Andy Garcia, Danny Trejo, Steven Bauer, Emilio Estefan, Juan Luis Guerra, and John Leguizamo. He's even had some good sports who braved sitting in the hot seat without speaking a word of Spanish, including Donald Trump, Dr. Ruth, Magic Johnson and Don King.

He's also created an incredible variety of zany characters. Jimenez' talents reach beyond radio. His first album " Tortilla Party" was nominated for a prestigious Billboard Latin Music Award, marking the first time a radio personality had received the honor. Since then, he's released three additional comedy albums.

Fans always show up in droves to see Jimenez perform live. He's sold out shows at Carolines,The Comedy Garden at New York's Madison Square Garden and at the New York Comedy Festival. Luis is also extremely proud that in March 2002 his live show had the honor to be the first Latin comedy show to be held at the world's biggest arena, MSG.

In 2005, Jimenez brought his morning mayhem to the big screen, releasing the feature film, "El Vacilón: The Movie." The movie had a nine-week run in limited release, and the DVD version was successfully released in January 2007.

Jimenez's rise to fame has been covered in various international media including Penthouse, Crain's, The New Yorker, Media Week, The New York Times, The New York Daily News, CNN, CBS-TV, ABC-TV, NBC-TV, Fuji TV Japan, BBC, CBS' TheShowbuzz.com, Telemundo and Univision, and others.

As a child growing up in Puerto Rico, Jimenez was fascinated with radio. When he was six, his father offered to take him to Disney World. Jimenez turned down the offer, and asked if he could visit a radio station instead. Jimenez took his first steps in broadcasting working as a part-timer in Puerto Rican radio.

In 1989 he moved to Orlando, Florida to work in a local radio station where his friend had become a program director. But things didn't quite go his way and the young radio hopeful had to take work as a maintenance employee while keeping his position on the air. It was only a matter of time before his charisma, wit and talent won him the hearts of the Hispanic community of Orlando. In 1993 his friend George Mier, who had become Program Director at WSKQ, invited him to move to New York to host the station's morning show. So it was then, on August 9, 1993, that El Vacilón de la Mañana was born, and with it a new era for Luis Jimenez.

His simplicity, his down-to-earth style and his ability to connect with his audience made television come calling. For more than four years, the tireless entertainer triumphed on the small screen with two programs, "Sábado 47" and "WEPA!", which he also created and produced. In addition, Jimenez is currently the voice of HBO Latino and The History Channel en Español.

For his passion and dedication, for his tireless determination, for overcoming obstacles, and because of his influence in the Hispanic community of the United States, Jimenez has received many honors, including being named the Padrino (Godfather) of the National Puerto Rican Day Parade of 2003. The official announcement was made during his radio program by former First Lady of the United States and current U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York. USA

Nevertheless, for the still young entertainer the greatest prize of all is his Family, who are his pride and joy and his loyal fans and listeners. It's to them that he dedicates all of his success!
