El Heat le metieron tremenda paliza a los Knicks last night. But the big news in Miami wasn't the Heat's offense. It was DJ Laz's decision to leave his beloved city for the Los Angeles airwaves.
On Monday, May 14, Lazaro Mendez will debut The DJ Laz Morning Show on Spanish Broadcasting System's KXOL 96.3 FM, "L.A.'s number one party station," less than one month after calling it quits at "Miami's party station," Power 96.
While several fans have taken to Twitter and Facebook to send their well wishes, Laz's critics are also chiming in.
Yesterday, we posted "DJ Laz Returns to Radio, Leaves Miami" to New Times' main Facebook page and 39 folks left comments. Some were positive, some were negative, and at least two were accusatory. Check out some of the best -- and worst -- comments below.
Bro, we'd totally love a ride to work just to hear what you've go on your iPod. Down to carpool?
We hear the only prescription for a weak morning show is more cowbell. Laz should be just fine, guy.
You might be on to something, Danny. But what should the new format be if Power 96 kicks the bucket?
Wait a tick, calling someone "the Rick Sanchez of" something is a good thing? No, that can't be... Are you sure?
Say what you will about the state of radio, but chill out with the "one less Cuban" jazz. Comments like that make you look dumber than your profile picture suggests.
