iHeartMedia CHR KZZP-FM (104.7 KISS FM)/Phoenix debuts "Tino Cochino Radio," effective September 9 from 8-midnight. Syndicated by YEA Networks across more than 50 markets, the program features air personality Tino Cochino alongside Raquel Marquez and DJ Nicasio and covers the latest in hip hop and entertainment headlines.

"My dream to have one of the best Top 40 on-air personalities and influencers in the country join our program lineup has come true," said KZZP Program Director Mat Mitchell. "Tino, Raquel and Nicasio are among the most driven people I've met in the industry and I cannot wait for their new night show to start in Phoenix while they continue to expand their syndication profile. #TinoMoved"

"It feels like we've won the lottery," added Cochino. "The hospitality, drive and energy in this building are unmatched. I've always been the type to surround myself with those who want to better their best and that's the case at iHeartMedia Phoenix. A special thanks to everyone at iHeart for their belief in our Tino Cochino Radio brand and vision for radio. We have a special love for the Phoenix community."

Born and raised in Lubbock, TX, Cochino broke into radio at the age of 13 as an intern. At age 16, he was given his first fulltime on-air shift and worked his way to the #1 night show in his hometown. Nearing his 21st birthday, Cochino took his show to San Antonio, before relocating to Bakersfield, CA and finally, to KKFR-FM (Power 98.3) in Phoenix where hosts Tino Cochino Radio weekday mornings from 6-10am.
