Luis is not only a phenomenal on-air talent, but he also is as loyal as they come. Being a Columbia alum, Luis never forgets his roots. Anytime I have asked him to speak to our students or assist in some way, he has been more than happy to oblige. In fact last summer he hired one of our recent graduates as an on-air talent at his station. He is personable, has an amazing on-air presence, and his technical skills are second to none. He is a true inspiration to our students and has given back ten fold with his generous time and advice to our students.
