I never thought I’d be writing this, BUT as we announced this morning on the radio this morning, the city of San Diego is giving me a “Geena the Latina Day!” Yes, they are officially proclaiming April 17th as “Geena the Latina Day” here in San Diego. The official proclamation is on April 17th at 10am at City Hall 202 C St. San Diego, CA 92101 (12th floor). Everyone is welcome. It will also be televised on Channel 24 (Cox/Time Warner Cable) and on Channel 99 (AT&T) or you can watch live on CityTV here https://www.sandiego.gov/communications/citytv. Special thank you to City Council President Cole who is sponsoring the day!
I am BEYOND honored to be receiving an official day here in San Diego. Never in my wildest dreams would have I ever imagined I’d be getting such an award. I have lived here in San Diego for almost 13 years now and it seriously has become my home. From day one, everyone here has welcomed me with open arms and has supported me like no other. I am SO THANKFUL for all of you. I have had a chance to meet so many of our wonderful Channel 933 listeners and you guys have always been so nice and welcoming and for that I am truly grateful. My family lives in LA, but I can honestly say that the Channel 933 listeners have truly become my family here in San Diego. So with that said, I want to say THANK YOU. Thank you for always supporting me. Thank you for listening. Thank you for laughing with me. Thank you for crying with me. And thank you for sharing your morning commute with us. We/I appreciate you more than you will ever know. I live such a blessed life and it’s seriously thanks to YOU guys! So I’ll say it one more time, THANK YOU for being such amazing listeners who have truly turned into family. I hope to be in San Diego for a long time now so you’re stuck with me!
