Val Santos has an energy thats infectious. Whether she is concert hopping on the weekends, connecting through social media or taking over the airwaves in Austin she brings her signature relatability and humor with her everywhere she goes! Born & Raised in Arizona; Vals love affair with radio started as a child when she would record her favorite shows onto cassette tapes and talk over the jocks pretending she herself was the host. The lightbulb went off above her head after leaving a Chris Brown concert and seeing a DJ hype up the crowd that this radio life was for her. Taking her life in her hands Val headed to Albany New York where she attended the New School of Radio & TV. In 2011 Val packed her bags for the Lone Star State and brought her talents with her to Texas starting out as an intern. Currently reigning as an iHeartmedia social media director and radio talent, Val is killing the airwaves as a fan favorite personality for KPEZ 102.3 The Beat in Austin, TX!
