Suzanne Grimes, EVP, Marketing for Cumulus Media and President of Westwood One says, “The Baka’s are a proven commodity; they program their mix shows like a major market PD, with the right records, an energetic host presentation, and dynamic imaging. It sounds big, bold, and riveting.”
Eric and Nick Vidal, aka the Baka Boyz, have set themselves apart from the pack as a model of consistency, quality, and success. As pioneering AM drive talent, they have succeeded in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Miami, while inventing signature benchmarks such as the “roll call.” Agent Gary Bernstein says, “The Baka’s have been PPM friendly well before PPM was even the measurement of choice. They deliver quality, reliability, and an unmatched track record of success across all the contemporary music formats. We are excited to be with the Westwood One family and are looking forward to expanding our relationship in the future if the marketplace calls for a daily program.”
