BIO: Born in Hollywood, CA, Jeffrey Arauz was destined for stardom. He moved to Miami, FL shortly after being born, and he’s been there ever since. A fan of all things pop culture, he took his passion for all things in the modern-day zeitgeist and created a popular blog site and took on the “Papi Chulo” moniker. For the blog’s third year anniversary, Jeffrey decided to launch a weekly live talk show titled The Papi Chulo Show. The show became so popular that it inspired him to create an entire internet-based radio station. Papi Chulo RADIO added a new dimension to the ever-growing “Papi Chulo” brand. In the short time its audio has hit the web airwaves, Papi Chulo RADIO has developed a feverish following.
Jeffrey describes his interview style and flow as a mixture of two of the greatest interviewers and media moguls: Howard Stern and Oprah Winfrey. Papi Chulo RADIO showcases a variety of entertainment personalities (from the vanilla to the controversial), much like Howard Stern does. But, he’s not interested in shocking the listeners. Jeffrey is more interested in telling the interviewee’s story, much like Oprah Winfrey.
The budding empire was created by accident by a man who didn’t even study journalism. He graduated with a degree in biology and minored in Africana Studies. But, it was Jeffrey’s love for all things pop culture that made the blog, talk show and radio station become a reality.
