San Diego to Honor Channel 93.3's Geena The Latina
|RADIO ONLINE | Thursday, April 12, 2018 | 5:18pm CT|
Geena is an active volunteer with local organizations and founded the Fearless Empowerment Conference in 2017. The annual event assembles successful women from the community to share their journey and inspire hundreds of teenage girls to be fearless and confident leaders.
"We are so excited to proclaim a day for Geena," said Council President Cole. "Not only does she give so much back to the girls in the community, but she also brightens our mornings on the radio."
Since joining iHeartMedia San Diego in 2006, Geena has become a well-known, and much-loved figure in San Diego both on and off the airwaves. She began her career at KIIS-FM/Los Angeles as a red-carpet reporter and worked with many of LA's top radio shows before making the move to San Diego. Geena was the first in her family to graduate from a 4-year university and was also the founding president of the first ever Latina-based sorority Sigma Lambda Gamma at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles where she also received a softball scholarship.
"I am beyond honored to receive an official day here in San Diego," said Geena. "Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that I'd receive such an award. I have lived in San Diego for almost 13 years now and it has become my home. From day one, everyone here has welcomed me with open arms and supported me. I have had a chance to meet so many of our wonderful Channel 93.3 listeners and you guys have always been so nice and welcoming and for that I am truly grateful."
