Audacy Urban AC KTWV (94.7 The Wave)/Los Angeles welcomes market veteran Liz Hernandez as its new morning show host, weekdays from 6am-noon PT, beginning today.

“Liz’s familiarity and history with Southern California make her a perfect fit to take the reins of The Wave’s morning drive,” said Jeff Federman, Regional President, Audacy Southern California. “We’re certain she will deliver a fresh, dynamic morning show that resonates with the Wave’s community.”

Hernandez is a SoCal native who started her entertainment career as a cast member of the nationally syndicated Big Boy’s Neighborhood when it was on KPWR (Power 106). After a decade of service, she made the transition to television as a host and correspondent for Access HollywoodE! News, and MTV. Hernandez continues to connect with community as the Founder and Creator of WORDAFUL, a video and live event series that focuses on the importance of how we communicate with others and ourselves.

“This truly is a homecoming to my first love — radio, and what better way than with a morning show at The Wave,” said Hernandez. “I’m incredibly proud to be a Latina in this space and to represent my culture and community, and grateful for the opportunity to be a voice for the beautiful people of Los Angeles. I’m excited to bring my energy and years of experience and to continue to celebrate this amazing city.”
