Claudio Mendonca, News Director
As a first generation American, Cláudio knows firsthand how a radio station can knit a community together. Born and raised in the San Joaquin Valley, KLBS kept his family connected to their culture.
“My childhood soundtrack was courtesy of an AM station that kept my parents tapped into the old country. It was a community hub for them and others who emigrated from the Azores. Still is.”
Now living in the Sierra Nevada with a family of his own, he is a passionate supporter of the democratization of media and of citizen journalism.
