CVObserver Editor-in-Chief Guillermo Moreno’s radio show on PowerTalk 96.7 has come to an end.
Guillermo called me Monday evening with the news. He said he and Power Talk officials had different visions for the future of conservative talk radio. He left it at that.
Guillermo, ever the gentleman, isn’t one to burn bridges. He was generous in his parting thoughts to that most important power player of all – the consumer.
“I want to personally thank the listeners who invited me into their homes and vehicles for the past 18 months where I was able to report the news and deliver my opinion,”
Guillermo told me.
“I’m humbled by the nightly response and success of the show.
“Working full-time, owning a business, editing this great publication and delivering a two-hour nightly program has been stressful, but worth every second.
“I will miss the conversations I had with the Central Valley, but I look forward to the many conversations I will be able to have with my wife and family around the dinner table at 6:00 p.m.
“I will continue to give my insight on the political world on the web pages of CVObserver and some type of talk format in the future, tune in.”
Guillermo in his PowerTalk biography wrote that he is a “Latino millennial born and raised in the Central Valley.” He described his daily life in this great nation as “living the dream.” He is a 2010 graduate of Michigan State Law School.
I remember Guillermo’s PowerTalk show leading up to the New Student Union referendum at Fresno State. A similar referendum in 2017 had failed. This second bite at the apple was of immense importance to university officials, in particular President Dr. Joseph Castro.
Fresno State students in March agreed to impose a student fee to fund construction of the New Student Union by a 2-to-1 margin. Fresno State’s built environment within five years will be dramatically different.
It’s fair to say it’ll be much improved. I like to think Guillermo deserves some of the credit.
