Edgar Sotelo and Brian Moote To Host 97.1 Amp Radio Los Angeles Mornings
Entercom has announced that Edgar ‘Shoboy’ Sotelo and Brian Moote will take over mornings at CHR “97.1 Amp Radio” KAMP Los Angeles starting in February.
Sotelo previously hosted mornings at sister CHR “92.3 Amp Radio” WBMP New York until its flip to Alternative in November. He also has previously worked at Regional Mexican “La Grande 107.5” KMVK Dallas. Moote joins the station from the syndicated Bert Show based at Cumulus CHR “Q100” WWWQ Atlanta where he served as a co-host for the past two years. Prior to joining the Bert Show, Moote co-hosted mornings at Modern AC “Click 98.9” KLCK Seattle and was a Los Angeles based standup comedian.
Sotelo and Moote fill the opening created by Carson Daly’s exit last July.
