“Grab every opportunity that presents itself”
Raquel Cordova , better known as Raq-C, originates from Riverside, CA. Her radio career began in 2000 at U-92.7 in Palm Springs as the morning show co-host. Shorty after, Spanish Broadcasting System (SBS) 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 the risk and left Chicago determined to become a permanent voice in Los Angeles. It paid off. Raq-C enjoyed a successful 8-year run as a top personality for Latino 96.3fm.
Her genuine connection to people allowed her to extend her career to different areas of entertainment: radio, T.V. (where she starred on the 2011 Mun2 reality show, “Jenni Rivera Presents: Chiquis and Raq-C.”), red carpet coverage, and now the latest celebrity blogger on Latina.com. Raq-C has also begun writing her first book that will no doubt become a best seller.
Raq-C credits her free spirit as her inspiration to grab every opportunity that presents itself. She see’s 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 success to motivate others. Embracing the influence she has on others along with her spirit of giving, Raq-C founded Amigas4MySoul, a non-profit organization established to promote unity and empowerment among women.
Raq-C is currently entertaining Los Angelino's on their afternoon drive home with EXITOS 93.9FM. One thing is certain, this girl works hard to play hard! Try and keep up…because where Raq-C is concerned, you never know what’s next.
