Meet The New Host of Loudwire Nights — Toni Gonzalez
Meet the gorgeous Cuban rocker chick who will rocking out with you on Loudwire Nights -- Toni Gonzalez!
Full Metal Jackie was a great host of "Loudwire Nights," but unfortunately left to work on her many other jobs in the rock community. Not only is she a successful rock radio host, but she also manages successful rock acts like Five Finger Death Punch and more. Since then, there has been a void in our show and hearts, that only a true rock radio diva could fill.
Please let me introduce Toni Gonzalez.
Toni is a blonde bombshell who is obsessed with rock, pizza and her dog. Obviously, the two of us are going to get along great. I was able to talk with her and learn a few things about our new rock goddess:
First concert ever attended: Gloria Estefan -- My mom made me go to chaperone my big sister. Basically my sister could have smoked crack and robbed a bank that night, because I was so bored I fell asleep.Favorite band: I'm really feeling Highly Suspect. Love his voice, face, lyrics, and they seem like trouble.First tape or CD ever bought: This is bad but no freaking clue. I have the memory of an ant. I only remember Gloria because my sister makes fun of me to this day. Then I reply, 'YOU chose the concert!'If you could interview one deceased musician who would it be: Kurt Cobain, no explanation needed.Favorite food: Pizza. Cheese + Bread + Meat = HeavenDo you have any hobbies: Who sent you, HR? (Possibly Toni ... Possibly.)Favorite band you have ever interviewed: Avenged Sevenfold. The Rev was still around back then and they had such a tight bond as a band. It was pretty cool to hear their high school stories.Why are you excited to be joining Loudwire Nights: I get to listen to and interact with rock musicians I respect and admire -- plus show prep in my p.j.'s.Best way for listeners to contact you to say hi:E-mail - Toni@loudwire.comTwitter - @ToniGLWNFB - ToniGLWN
Here's a little bit more about Toni, in her own words:
" I'M A CUBAN WHO MOVED TO MIAMI WHEN I WAS TWO AND I DEFINITELY DID NOT ARRIVE VIA PRIVATE JET.... LET'S JUST SAY I LEARNED TO SWIM AT AN EARLY AGE. I BEGAN MY CAREER IN RADIO AT 18, STUDIED BROADCASTING JOURNALISM, AND WORKED IN TV AND NEWS PRINT AS WELL. SO I'VE BEEN HEARD, SEEN, READ AND I'M SURE SNIFFED A FEW TIMES ALONG THE WAY. I CAN RECITE THE LYRICS TO ANY NINE INCH NAILS SONG, AM CONFIDENT THAT WITH THIS JOB I'VE ACHIEVE MORE SUCCESS THAN ALL OF MY EX-'S COMBINED, AND I AM CERTAIN COKE IN A GLASS BOTTLE TASTES WAY BETTER THAN IN A CAN."
