Bye Bye Baby: Chuy Gomez Gone from KMEL



Bye Bye,  Chuy Gomez, KMEL --he gone!

Someone named "Sana G" gets the new morning shift.

Don't know the full details but it's the radio biz mind you and there's never a dull moment. I'm sure I'll get to the bottom of this and let you know eventually.

UPDATE: Looks like this was a case of a budget axe --It usually is.

    1. If you listened to KMEL, you'd know who he is. Since you obviously don't, why comment? Chuy is a popular bay area radio DJ, and he has been for the past 20 + years. He's accomplished what many others haven't in this business. Maybe you should google him.

    2. @5:09 He was simply asking a question. The majority of the Bay Area have probably never turned that station on. I've heard the name but only because back in the 80's my brother went through his "rap" phase.

      Other than that....another station I have never turned on and another "DJ" I have never listened to.

    3. @6:53 Yes, it was a simple question that could have been answered by reading the headline. I don't listen to every genre of music, but I wouldn't comment "who's that?" on a post about someone leaving a station that I don't listen to. Common sense, or reading comprehension, would tell me the person was someone who worked at the station.

  2. He lasted longer than most. Sana G has been working the afternoon shift at KMEL for a few years, I'm sure she'll be great in the AM as well. Wish Chuy the best.

  4. Chuy? can't remember listening to him.
    Maybe the overnight shift on KGO.

  5. Oh, no. I guess this means Clear Channel will have to repaint the station Hummer with Chuy's face on it and the "Who love you, baby?" slogan that is actually missing the comma and nobody seems to remember that Kojak said that FIRST. The Hummer is a staple in the CC office garage! How will we survive?

  6. Chuy, the Wolfman Jack of the Hip Hop Bay Area scene. Will be missed.

  7. Is he still on Chelsea Lately?

  8. Chuy is a trail blazer. I hope someone (preferably in this market) picks him up soon. All the best to Mr. Gomez.

  10. I'm sorry but Chuy has over stayed he's welcome at the Radio show and as for Sana G....she sucks!!!! They need to find some real talent for that radio station. The last time i really loved KMEL was when Rick Chase, Renel and the zoo crew was around. Chuy makes me turn on the radio and Sana G, oh please...they need to fire her yesterday!!!!

  11. I hope this isn' true clear channel company is not making a great move by doing this its bad enough the company is where it is but by getting rid of your real on air personality's that have been loyal to the company for over 20+ years hes more then just ratings on your dumb Arbitron scale hes hasn't been there for that many years for nothing its about gaing the trust and confidence in the public and making a positive in pack in the bay area community wise and that's what chuy has done and why he has become a icon in the industry. I have no doubt that he will be fine wherever he gose but for the bay area and for 106.1 kmel this is the biggest and dumbest loss they have ever done.Not saying that the other dj's aren't good but they will have to most deff step up their game.

  12. As far as the ratings are concerned Chuy is not the problem. Everyone listens to their ipods, pandora or satelite radio and thats what happened to the ratings, Not Chuy!

  13. Chuy wakes up the bay every morning! He will truly be missed!! Sana is SO annoying! Anybody but her...she's horrible to listen to! I won't be listening anymore. GET IT TOGETHER KMEL!

    ReplyDelete
  14. who fucking cares that he is gone. The music on the radio os garbage. Now he can go out and get a real job.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Sana G is annoying as you know what! She thinks she is so much better than everybody else, rips on other chicks(first sign of insecurity) and YES you ONLY date black guys and all other guys are weak WE GET IT SANA G! Lol its not that serious...really

  16. For those of us who grew up on the old school KMEL Chuy was always a weak phony. Come on man, this guy couldn't hold the jock of Rick Chase, John London, Renel, Davey D, Evan Luck, Michael Erickson, Kevin Nash....shall I go on? It is amazing to me this dude lasted so long. He was the Monty of the urban listeners on KMEL. I stopped listening to that station years ago as the dreck on air got worse by the day. Aaah man, I remember the good old days listening to a cool Billy Vidal power mix as I'd get ready to hit the club scene later that night.

  20. I grew up watching CMC and listening to Chuy Gomez on KMEL... But these days I find myself tuning into Jay V on wild 94.9 or Fernando and Greg on 99.7. Much respect to Chuy but he is from an older generation trying to entertain younger listeners. Hopefully he can pull a Don Bleu and head over to a station with an older audience.

  26. From the looks of his photograph, a few generalizations.
    He voted for Barrack Obama.
    He has spent time in prison.
    He lives in the inner city.

    1. Chuy Gomez was an Bay Area institution that lasted 20 yrs. How many dj's last that long at one spot? Anyway, more generalizations.... based on your posts.....,you thought, Sarah Palin would be a good vp, you cling to "yer" guns and religion, You live in a trailer in the "bible belt south".

  31. Lets see how far back y'all go, who remembers why Chuy ended up at KMEL? it sucks that another station has caned him, Sana is super fake (in my opinion) KMEL is gonna lose super support and listeners, u can bet on that....

  32. I grew up listening to Chuy Chuy Chuy Gomezzz! and I still try to to catch him on iheart radio from time to time since I am no longer in California. Chuy did more than just host a morning show...he gave lectures to comm arts majors at the universities, he gave back to his community, and he is chilled guy! He was the voice of the bay in the mornings and he will be missed!

  37. If I am not mistaken this is the same Chuy that was the sidekick to Mancow on the old Wild 107.7 (before it was sold and they moved to 94.9). Wasn't Chuy the one that actually had his haircut on the Bay Bridge after the Clinton haircut in LA on the runway?

  38. Another DJ bites the dust. Happens all the time

  39. i would listen to RICK Chase alot in the 80′s with my Mom. I remember bay area radio before “chuy gomez” Chuy would come to our high school in the mid 90′s with the street team and do promo etc. look at 99.7 now and how they basically took the entire old 94,9 staff and made a new station.. LISTENERS IN THE BAY DESERVE to hear new DJ’s . why must we be force fed the same dj’s year after year (in this case decade after decade)? KMEL needs to get rid of Sana G (and her corny and crude “gossip reports”) as well as Big Von and Completely serve us with a New ERA of Bay Area Radio.
    I look at how 94.9 brought back the ‘undercover’ Racist JV after his Meth episodes a decade ago. Mr, JV is another Over rated morning DJ that continues to leak thru the cracks in the chairs of this Glamorous game of Musical chairs BAY AREA RADIO PLAYS. Its such a sigh of relief when i Enter Los Angeles and listen to their Radio..(although im not exzactly fond of Past & current LA DJ’S like theo & Big Boy)
    The Only thing good at Kmel is their Mixes and then again Most Listeners choose Kmel WHY? cause its one of the Only Major Stations that will Play HIP HOP/RAP continually. Its as if we are in rural city with One fast food chain – Kentucky Fried Chicken and they just fired the Lead Drive thru attendant – Esther and Now Some of the community wont get the usual hook up or whatever Esther was providing on the under. THIS CHANGE IS SO WELCOMED…its time for a CHANGE AT KMEL & Bay Area Radio.
