When she worked here (from 2011-2019) with both KSBJ and NGEN Radio, our staff and listeners absolutely fell in love with her passion, her commitment to excellence, and her laugh. Now that we’ve launched Vida Unida, and we’ve completed the merger with Way Media, our need for someone with Coppelia’s skills and passionate heart for ministry has increased exponentially. I’m looking forward to working with her again, and excited at the possibilities – especially when you look at the growth, and future growth on the horizon for this ministry.”
Coppelia, says: “I’m excited to be heading back home to Houston with Hope Media Group, after an amazing season with Z88.3 & La Z104.7 Kissimmee & 102.5 Orlando. The Z family is special, and I’ll miss doing Afternoons with Shadow. But I’m so excited about this new season, especially when you look at the growth for Vida Unida in three of the four largest markets for Spanish-speaking listeners in the United States. I can’t wait to get this FIESTA started.”
