Talaya Trigueros Exits 94.7 The Wave

After 30 years of hosting middays at 94.7 The Wave (KTWV) in Los Angeles, veteran air personality and voiceover artist Talaya Trigueros has exited the station, due to what is being described as budgetary reasons, ending a career filled with industry awards, accolades and No. 1 ratings.

Trigueros grew up in Albuquerque, NM and moved to San Francisco to study broadcasting at San Francisco State University. Her first big break came at the former KRE in Berkeley, CA, playing Jazz and Latin Jazz. When the format evolved to what became known as The Quiet Storm and the call letters changed to KBLX, Trigueros was hired to do middays there. She later moved to Los Angeles when the former KUTE 101.9 also adopted The Quiet Storm format. After subsequent stops at KNX-FM and the former K-Ocean, Trigueros landed at 94.7 The Wave.

UPDATE 3/19/20

Talaya Trigueros is hosting on the Sirius XM Watercolors Smooth Jazz channel.

From 2012 this is 94.7 The Wave 25th Anniversary celebration where Brian McKnight was once the morning host. Trigueros and the other voices of The Wave talk about their favorite moments at the station. Today only Pat Prescott and Deborah Howell remain at the station.


  1. Sorry to hear about Talaya leaving the Wave in LA. Use to listen to her always when I lived in the Southeast part of LA. But I left Cal (In 2004) for NM. So today, May 7th, 2020 guess who I heard on Watercolors XM? Talaya!!! Now I will be a regular again to Talaya..funny how life is

  2. Today,6/19/20 while listening to watercolors I hear a very family voice. I said no way!! Sure enough, it was Talaya. One cannot mistake her soft distinguished radio voice. She is truly a master. I had the pleasure to provide security for show she was involved in in the 80's. She is more pleasant in person than she is on the radio, she is very respectful and has not allowed her fame to go to her head. She IS, a woman of honor! Congrats Talaya Watercolors scored BIG, with you!!!!!...."Straight on ahead"
