Program Director, WYUU-FM, Beasley Media Group, Tampa
Nio began his career in radio in 1996 working at Radio Mundo 680AM in Tampa. After only one year, he was offered a position at Mega 760AM where along with being an on-air host, was named the official voice in Spanish of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This honor catapulted Nio into the national spotlight of Spanish sports and eventually lead to the public recognition for excellence in broadcasting by Mayor Dick Greco and the City of Tampa.
In 2005, Nio was given an opportunity to return to his hometown Miami as the afternoon drive host on Mega 94.9 FM.
After only 2 months in South Florida, he took Mega to #1, provoking an invitation to Los Angeles where he hosted afternoons on the world’s most successful Latin Rhythmic station “Latino 96.3 FM”. For almost three years, Nio consistently competed among the top three stations in the biggest Radio Market in the United States.
In 2007 Nio received one of the greatest honors of his career when he was privileged with the “Passion of the Art” award by the National Institute of Latin American Journalism.
When 2008 rolled around, Nio once again answered the call to return to his hometown Miami. This time as the morning show host on one of South Florida’s most illustrious stations, “El Zol 95.7”.
Upon the arrival of 2009, Nio’s career came full circle as he returned to Tampa and joined CBS Radio where he was appointed Program Director of WYUU in 2010. As director and the station’s afternoon drive host, Nio has built a significant relationship with Tampa’s Hispanic audience and forged the strongest of bonds with community leaders and organizations.
