Veteran Latino Radio Host Leo Vela Dies


MIAMI — Since November 1978, his voice has been heard on radio stations in both San Antonio and Miami, making his name well-known among a generation of Latinos who were raised on the Bee Gees and today perhaps appreciate Gilberto Santa Rosa as much as the late Selena.

Now, the Hispanic radio industry is paying tribute to Leo Vela, who died Wednesday (8/25) at the age of 69.
