“I’m proud to have Joe Soto take the reins of afternoon drive on V103,” said Derrick Brown, Director of Urban Programming at iHeartMedia Chicago. “I’ve known Joe for over 25 years and worked with him on several occasions, most directly at V103 for almost a decade.
He’s a proud son of Chicago, a hilariously talented theatre-of-the-mind entertainer, and die-hard Cubs fan. I’m most impressed with his non-stop commitment to uplifting our community from our gun turn-in programs to youth baseball camp.” Soto, a 36-year veteran, is most familiar to Chicagoland listeners as host of “The Real Show” and “Back in the Day” on V103.
“The opportunity to host afternoon drive on V103 is an honor and a privilege,” said Soto. “It is truly one of our nation’s great radio stations. Thanks to derrick brown for his incredible guidance and belief in me."

“I must also acknowledge the legendary Doug Banks,” commented Soto. “He was a teacher, mentor and friend. There will never be another Doug Banks. The V103 listeners are like family members. They are the most important part of what I do every day. I’m just a kid from K-Town on Chicago’s great west side living the dream!”
