YEA Networks has named on-air personality J-Si Chavez as Host of its nationally syndicated program, "The Hollywood 5", America's #1 Celebrity News Radio Show. The two-hour weekend show airs each week on over 60 stations across the U.S. featuring celebrity interviews mixed with affiliate stations' best music.

Chavez is best known as Co-Host of "The Kidd Kraddick Morning Show", a role he stepped into 12 years ago. He continues to captain the ensemble cast. Born in Mexico City and raised in San Diego, Chavez got his start at Channel 93.3 as the morning show's "Man on the Street." For four seasons, he was featured on FOX's syndicated television show, Dish Nation.

George Laughlin, President and Chief Executive Officer, YEA Networks, said: "We would like to thank Bert Weiss for being an excellent host. We have enjoyed his perspective and passion as we did when Kidd Kraddick launched the show 8 years ago. We are looking forward to the same from J-Si as he follows in these incredible footsteps."

"The Hollywood 5 is a project Kidd Kraddick worked very hard on to get off the ground, and being able to keep it going with the YEA Networks family means a lot," said Chavez. "I'm excited to take on this new role!"
