Coquia, who was formally the interim PD for Power 106 and 93.5 KDAY, will continue to report to Meruelo’s President and COO, Otto Padron.
Padron praised Coquia:
“E-Man is Our-man! After an exhaustive nationwide search that attracted some of the most talented PDs in America, the choice was clear. E-Man had a sensible plan and a vision that aligned perfectly with our goals to disrupt the industry with new hyper local L.A. content.”
“I’m truly excited to continue to lead the incredible winning teams at our two iconic Hip Hop radio stations in Los Angeles: Power 106 & 93.5 KDAY. I’m also enjoying every minute assembling and developing the new Cali 93.9 team. To be a part of three major radio stations in Los Angeles that play Hip-Hop: Current, Classic, & Latin Hip-Hop/Reggaeton is a very dope feeling, especially as a fan of these music genres.”

In April, the legendary Beat Junkies crew launched a DJ school called The Beat Junkie Institute of Sound. Located in Glendale, California, the school offers fundamental and specialized DJ courses, workshops, and private lessons, all taught by members of the crew.
The Beat Junkie Institute of Sound puts on an emphasis on the foundation of DJing. For example, students start by learning with original vinyl and then move to digital. Its state-of-the-art facility features 12 workstations, a merch store, and a “longtagon,” which is a table for group scratch sessions.
Power 106’s DJ E-Man recently took a tour of the institute and spoke with instructors DJ Babu and Mr. Choc. While he was there, he saw a scratch session that included DJ Premier. Afterwards, E-Man spoke with Premo about what it means to be a DJ today.
