Leo Vargas, WDBO


Leonel Joaquin "Leo" Vargas has quickly become one of the most recognized voices in the Hispanic radio industry. Born in Orlando, Florida to Costa Rican parents, his youthful and powerful voice started being heard in promotional videos for his church's annual fall festival before also being heard in promos for other events in the Orlando area. Vargas also worked as a disc jockey at a local skating rink during this time. Vargas began his radio career while in college at WONQ "La Grande" 1030 AM, Orlando's very first and longest-running Spanish-language radio station. Following a brief stint as co-host of programs that aired on WPRD "La Voz" 1440 AM, Vargas became one of the promotional announcers and social media manager for WMQV "La Primera" 102.3 FM, where he also hosted his own "Top 10 Hits" music show. Vargas officially crossed over to the English-language radio market in 2022 when he became a news reporter for WDBO 107.3 FM/580 AM in Orlando, while also voicing commercials for its Spanish-language sister station, WOEX "Exitos" 96.5 FM. With a degree in Digital Media from the University of Central Florida, Vargas is also a drummer and percussionist. He also enjoys singing, fitness, and martial arts. Today, his voice continues to be used in projects for radio, television, and other audio-visual needs in both English and Spanish.
