Raquel Cordova, better known as RaqC, originates from Riverside, CA. Her radio career began in 2000 at U-92.7 in Palm Springs as the morning show co-host. Shortly after, Spanish Broadcasting System Inc. offered her an on-air position with the regional Mexican station, La Ley 107.9 in Chicago. Her successful run in Chicago allowed her to master the art of radio, as well as fine-tune her second language, Spanish.
When learning that a station in Los Angeles was being restructured to a bilingual format, she took a risk by leaving Chicago determined to become a permanent voice in Los Angeles. It paid off. RaqC enjoyed a successful 8-year run as a top personality for Latino 96.3fm. Most recently she enjoyed entertaining Angelinos on their ride home with Exitos 93.9fm.

RaqC has been coined “The Queen of Spanglish Media” and uses her blogging platform on Latina Magazine’s celebrity blog to share tips on what it means to be a “modern day Latina”.
RaqC credits her free spirit as the inspiration to seize every opportunity that presents itself. She views radio as an outlet to express her love, happiness, and ambitions with the masses. Her passions include music, representing Latino culture in a positive light, and sharing her stories of success to motivate others.
