Univision cancels Luis Jimenez show

By on Jul, 17 2014 with Comments 88

Luis JimenezUnivision Radio pulled morning drive “The Luis Jimenez Show” from Spanish Tropical WXNY-FM NYC.  The station will instead air a music-intensive show and make additional  announcements soon as to his replacement, if any.  Jimenez hosted mornings in New York for some 20+  years and was syndicated by Univision.  He joined “WXNY in 2009 at its debut.

    Is Univision Radio STUPID or what?! Cancelling the #1 Latin radio show in NY? And not even letting the listener know before hand or even after? One had to look it up in the internet? I don’t know about rest of the listeners, but as for me, I’m boycotting that station. I will never listen to it any more.No consideration for the listeners is like a slap in the face. STUPID STUPID way of doing business. GOODBYE!

    • NORBERT PIZARRO Says:

      crazy !! who do something like that to the audience ..good by Spanish stations I would not listen to them ..

    • Rachelle Osorio Says:

      Me too, boycott. I kept turning on my radio in the morning and no Luis, I kept saying what the heck is going on! Then of course I saw the news on the TV and got a glimpse of Luis. I told myself something is up, got on Google and got the surprise that there is no Luis Jimenez Show. That is it for me!

  2. We want Luis back

  3. yulia rengifo Says:

    we want to luis back, if no goodbye univicion.

  4. manuel sanchez Says:

    Is univision insane? We saw how Luis boosted the ratings for the station after he departed sbs. I really hope the mega takes resigns him to an insane deal and drops 96.3fm from the charts. Good luck Luis.

  5. They must be crazy!!!!! The luis Jimenez show is the only good thing they had, soon they will be history if they don’t bring him back!!!!!

  6. Alfredo Says:

    They just lost the best talent on Hispanic radio and most of his listeners. There’s no real talent outthere and it seems to me that the power’s at be at Univision Radio don’t have much common sense or talent either. We’ll follow Luis and his show wherever he goes!!!

  7. Sky Angel Says:

    What the HELL is Univision thinking????? HELLO!!!!!! I think we as listeners have a say in the matter. It’s NOT only rude but extremely UNPROFESSIONAL n dirty to conduct business in such matter. I know they must be unionized and therefore an agreement should be shortly met, if this is the case. However I neither case, the listeners gives the rating by listening & at LEAST Univision owes us an explanation!!!!! Instead of chickening out like cowards. Just venting a little due to my LARGE disappointment at Univision. Why does this happen only in Latinos? We don’t see this behavior in the American stations. How sad, smh. We want Luis Jimenez show back with all their staff!!!! We Miss them

  8. caramelo Says:

    I believe luis will surprise his fans through SIRUS Radio LOOK OUT HOWARD STURN< HERE WE COME AGIAN ……

  9. We want luis Jimenez show

  10. alma roman Says:

    I am lost without the luis jiminez morning show. Univision has lost their minds.

  11. El Arquitecto Insanito Says:

    I have been a big of Luis Jimenez since 1997. Since 1997 I have laughed my ass off at work. What people don’t realize is that Luis Jimenez 5 year contract was up. He signed a 5 year contract. If it were not for Luis Jimenez Univision radio X96.3FM would have been trailing every other station in the tri-state area. With Luis Jimenez departure so was the “El Camion Del Dinero” contest. I am never going to listen to this station again. Their music programming sucks. Luis Jimenez is the originator every other personality on the radio can’t compete not even on the English market!

  12. It’s a matter of business and strategy, Univision decided to cancel both talk shows, cost reduction, low ratings. In the case of Luis jimenes he was alone in the mornings, now Mega brings Raymond and Miguel to the Vacilon, so is hars to compete with La Mega. So univision decided to leave the talk shows to Mega and focused just in Music.

  13. Jimmy8135 Says:

    I can’t believe Luis Jimenez and the crew was cancelled it was a good show considering the competition I’m a huge fan of all of them and when I found out that it was off I felt bad because they made people laugh, for Univision they don’t know how to do handle business let people know it was going to be cancelled a lot of fans were wondering what happened to the show like me I know Luis and his friends will figure out a way to bring the happiness back to the fans for now it will suck to wait for at least a clue to see when they will be back thank you so much to all come back soon

  14. NEGRAPTY30 Says:

    WHAT THE HELL……HOW INCONCIDERATE IS UNIVISION FOR TREATING THEIR LISTENERS IN THIS MATTER, THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE. THE LUST JIMENEZ SHOW IS THE BEST EVER, BRING LUIS BACK I DEMAND, BRING LUIS BACK, AND BRING LUIS BACK. YOU KNOW WHAT AS OF NOW I AM BOYCOTTING THIS RADIO STATION. BYE! YOU NO GOOD.

  15. I already am listenign to the other station but it had been a long time since I ahd and man they are freaking corny as hell

  16. Cynthia Says:

    Where is Luis Jimenez so I can follow the talent. The worst thing uno version could have done. He made my mornings and the sad part was the listeners didn’t get a warning. Luis I will follow whatever station you go to. I won’t listen to 96.3 again. Good bye..

  17. FLORIDA LATINO COUNCIL Says:

    THIS IS THE ONLY RADIO STATION THAT WE ALLLISTENED TO IN THE MORNING BECAUSE OF THE LUIS JIMENEZ SHOW. YOU SEE? THIS IS THE REASON WHY THE HISPANIC POPULATION HAVE SUCH A BAD REP AS TO MAINTAINING A GOOD, THRIVING BUSINESS.

    THAT IS THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENED TO THE HISPANIC NATION IN TERMS OF RADIO. EVEN THE “GRINGOS” ENJOYED THIS SHOW, THEN THEY GO CUTTING THE TIMES FROM 12 TO 10AM…WE KNEW SOMETHING WAS COMING.

    NOW THEY WANT TO FILL THE GAP WITH BORING MUSIC? THEY MIGHT AS WELL SHUT THE RADIO STATION DOWN.

    KENNY

  18. FLORIDA LATINO COUNCIL Says:

    YEA WE ARE DONE WITH 103.1 OUT HERE IN FLORIDA……

  19. Again. ….forget univision ..there more like stupidvision. .I could here the rating fall as I type this …bring him back..its the only thing you have ..your style of music sucks your music tracks are so predictable

  20. This is unbelievable. So besides the fact that there is no Dominicans in Chicago you’re gonna take away the only cultural connection I had established in the mornings? Just play music like if Pandora doesn’t do that for me already? Personality radio talk shows is what identifies us as multicultural diverse Latinos. Why don’t you throw away your toothbrush and don’t eat breakfast and see how that makes sense and how you’ll feel? Corporate political corruption.

  21. Orlando Perez Says:

    THis is insane!! I loved driving to work every morning to listen Luis Jimenez Show! Worst desicion I ever heard!

  22. Carmela Reategui Says:

    IT’S HORRYBLE ……WHAT’S GOING ON WITH THIS, UNIVISION RADIO ARE YOU INSANE WHY YOU TREAT US LIKE THAT, WHY YOU DO SOMETIME LIKE THAT, WE NEED THIS SHOW BACK OR O WE ARE GOING TO MADE MY PEOPLE NOT TO LISTEN NO MORE THIS STATION….THIS GUY MADE ME LAUGH EVERYDAY AND MADE ME STEEL AWAKE TO CONTINUE FOR MY NEXT JOB, IN THE MORNING. MISTER LUIS JIMENEZ IF YOU GOING TO ANOTHER STATION I AM GOING TO FOLLOW YOU AND MY PEOPLE TOO, I HOPE YOU READ THIS, BUT YOU THE BEST AND YOU ALWAYS WILL BE !!!!

    UNIVISION RADIO DIED FOR EVERRRRRR !!!!!!!

  23. This is INSANE!!! What UNIVISION is thinking….Sad to see they don’t appreciate El Talento Latino…I will not going to Tune in this radio station anymore… I will follow you Luis Jimenez, wherever you go. Good Luck. You will always shine because you are our SUNSHINE every day for us….LATINOS!!!

  24. OMG!!!! Is just crazy. I’m Spanish but I don’t listen Spanish radio. The reason is I like to make my English language better. Luis Jimenez show was the only spanish show that I enjoyed every morning on my way to work. Is really sad that he is not longer there. I guess I’m going to have to say bye bye to Univision radio the same way a said bye bye to Univision tv long time ago when they decided to become a “Mexican ” tv station. Well, now I have to wait until Luis get a new contract in any other radio station… I definitely will follow him.

    • Luis jimenez was good sometimes but he will repeat it too many times it was getting kinda wack maybe him taking a little vacation He might bring something new back let’s all be honest about the show that’s my opinion. And am Hispanic too.

  25. Boycotting univision

  26. Words can’t express the void felt by not having the Luis Jimenez Show to listen to in the morning. The listeners should not have been dumped without notice. I and I’m sure others will definitely follow Luis Jimenez to his next spot.

  27. Worst thing univision made was to let luis go…this station crash without him

  28. I heard that they cancel the show Why? People love him he is funny and unite. That men started the show from the bottom and now is on the top. BRING HIM BACK PLEASE.BRING HIM BACK.WE LOVE YOU LUIS AND OF COURSE HIS CREW AS WELL.

  29. delia,Belleville,nj Says:

    ON THE RADIO FOR SUCH A LONG TIME AND SUCCESSFUL LUIS JIMENEZ IS.
    BRING HIM BACK……

  30. Tomas from Passaic Says:

    Dumb move! I have no reason to listen to that station anymore. You just lost all your listeners!

  31. I heard Univision is selling the station therefore getting rid of contracts. That maybe a hoax but who knows.

  32. dj d.knight Says:

    U want to know the truth, it like everthing else, out wt the old n in wt the new. Univsion are just cheap asses. All they do is cut off people n look for new faces n cheap prise. Topics from. Then, that’s why I don’t listen or what there programas on tv. All there good is no good for Nothing.

  33. We want Luis back , thats stuped

  34. I refuse to listen to any one else.
    by that Univision will go out of business.
    Univision took advantage of his popularity,Luis made the station profitable and then Univision dump him.

  35. Elputio15 Says:

    Univision is it out of it’s damn mind. How in the hell do you cancel the #1 radio show in NYC. They lost a radio legend
    Univision just lost millions of radio listeners. Too bad for Univision, now you are just another radio station number. I know Luis and his crew will find work in another radio station and make that station #1. UNIVISION SUCKS BIG A**!!!

  36. This is is unbelievable, what went wrong, I believe we deserve an explanation

  37. junior sanchez Says:

    Ja…Luis Jimenez and his crew forman un team perfecto en cuanto a entretenimiento radial se refiere,Luis Jiménez show eran mi terapia anti todas las porquerías que hay que aguantar en este país. Luis es súper talentoso y muy humilde persona- le deceo mucho éxito y donde quiera que valla lo apoyaré, el vacilón era algo estupido hasta ahora que llegaron Raymond y miguel hubiera sido mucho mejor si Miguel y Raymond se hubieran unido con Luis,esos tres si son naturalmente profesionales en el humor.
    En mi opinión Univisión son unos hipócritas por no avisar de la partida de Luis,mientras no tengan a Luis no la escucharé ni en tele…ahora de maldad me voy a la mega. Ojala quiebre Univisión.

  38. No more spanish radio for me going back to z100 with elvis durAn goodbye univision radio:(

  39. This has got to be the BIGGEST Blunder in radio history to date! Cancelling the “The Luis Jimenez Show” was a very BAD business decision by the execs at Univision!

    New York listeners are LOYAL to a broadcast program that affects their lives in a positive way. Laughter is medicine for many.

    New York listeners do not come CHEAP! When Univision dismissed the talent of their morning show they also dismissed the listeners.

    Good luck with that thing you call a “Hot Morning Mix”. As for me and hundreds of others, I will no longer listen to your station again!

    “Que Dios les perdone este pecado!

  40. STUPID, STUPID move by univision. This is the worst decision that they could make, I hope their ratings go down and eventually get taken off the air for such an idiotic move like this.

  41. What’s wrong with Univision, are they out of their minds.
    I’m definetaly not listening them until Luis Jimenez is back on the air.

  42. Juan Cruz Says:

    Univision please don’t be stupi why are you taking off the air the #1 radio show in New York never listen to the station ever again

  43. William Davila Says:

    Just deleted uforia ,and switched radio stations good bye uni vision

  44. Dj caobo Says:

    Creo qué sacar el show de Luis Jiménez del aire fue una muy mala decisión,al contrario
    Pudieran dejarse de tantas PENDEJADAS y que sí la FCC y tanta mierda y dejar que el
    Maestro del humor mañanero haga su trabajo como sólo el sabe hacerlo y sin tanto tapujo
    Que hablé como antes y así podrán ser número UNO por sobre todas las emisoras incluyendo
    las Anglo.
    Att. Un fiel fanático del maestro jimenez

  45. Giovana Marsano Says:

    My mornings have not been the same since the Luis Jimenez show was taken off air …. This is univision’s biggest mistake, I won’t be listening to 96.3 any longer

  46. I miss the show my husband And I listen to the station every morning . Couldn’t wait for break time to hear it . The station is corny now,won’t listen to it anymore can’t wait for your comeback Luis and crew . miss u guys !!!!!!
    Love u guys!!! 🙁

  47. amauryg1104@gmail.com Says:

    They are a team is Luis Jimenez only without his team he can’t do shows but he is good and we want at la mega univision has proven over and over that they not rear TV and radio they just sucks

  48. Elunico01 Says:

    Univisión really!!! Really!!! I would love to know what was soooooooo bad that the Luis Jimenez Show crew did that you cancelled the show without a notice to the listeners? Are you forgetting that it’s because of us the LISTENERS that the company that sponsor your product. What else do you have on your radio air wave worth listening too. I could tell you right now that am done tuning in to your station.

  49. Marco Melendez Says:

    Whyyyyyyyy bring it back. Now ny is dead b/c they cut the Luis Jimenez show

  50. What is Univision thinking? I have been listening to the show for years. Who made this foolish decision? I will not be listening to Univision any longer. I will wait until Luis Jimenez shows up on another station,which I know will happen eventually. Luis Jimenez has a large listening audience some station will take advantage of this sign him and his crew. Best of luck Luis. Bye-bye Univision!

  51. I am in awe that the station cancelled the show. I’ve been listening to the show for about 14 years or so, since it was on La Mega. I now reside in FL and it’s unfortunate that the station didn’t consider the listeners. I had to find out through the web that the show was cancelled!! Colossal mistake on their part. The Luis Jimenez Show is or was the only reason I listened to this station. I will delete this station from my TuneIn Radio!!!

  52. carlos caba Says:

    whoever took the decision to cancel the show should lose his job, very poor decision, goodbye ratings and sponsors.

  53. I miss Louis and the rest but we don’t know if he had some personal problem that we don’t know about and Univision shouldn’t talk about let’s wait and see and hope all is well

  54. I think Univision made a very bad call on cancelling the most
    Heard radio station, the number 1 station heard all over. And let’s not forget what makes your #1 ratings Luis Jimenez. I will boycott anything that has to do with Univision and will advice others to do as well. Bring Luis Jimenez before it is too late.

  55. It’s so silly to cancel such a good Show. I want “The Luis Jimenez Show” back please!!

  56. NEGRAPTY30 Says:

    Hey Univision, it me….. where is the Luis Jimenez Show…l am waaaaaaating this is ridiculous you folks are surely going to regret what you have done. BRING “THE LUIS JIMENEZ SHOW BACK” NOOOOOW!

  57. Veronica Says:

    ARE THEY CRAZY!!!! LUIS JIMENEZ SHOW IS THE ONLY THING WORTH LISTENING TO!! THE FACT THAT U HAVE TO LOOK IT UP ON THE INTERNET TO FIND OUT THE THE SHOW IS CANCELED IS INSANE, WHAT ABOUT US???? DON’T THEY THINK THEY OWE US AN EXPLANATION?? I HOPE LUIS GOES TO ANOTHER STATION AND DROPS 96.3 RIGHT OFF THE CHARTS CUZ THATS WHAT THEY DESERVE! HOW UNPROFESSIONAL AND INCONSIDERATE! WE WANT LUIS BACK!!!!!

  58. Jose Palaguachi Says:

    Why univision did something like that they don’t care about audience poor deci

    sion bring Luis Jimenez back.

  59. Univision doesn’t know what to do to keep the radio station stable, first they have change the name of the station like 3 times, second they change the format of the station when it was reggaeton only, and now they remove the luis jimenez show that means they don’t have a clue how the business works. What a shame

  60. Fernando R Says:

    We want you back luis jimenez

  61. Good. The fewer of these dumb morning radio shows the better. Get rid of that goon Elvis next. Dumb immature nonsense.

  62. Without Luis on the radio, I don’t want to listen to any other Spanish radio channel. I was hooked to Luis’s show, and now since Univision is so STUPID by throwing Luis’s show away, now I stuck on listening to Classical music like Beetoven, and Bach. I AM SO MAD, PISSED, AND BORED. I WANT LUIS BACK….NOW!!!! Signed EL INDIO

  63. no more radio for me u people suckkkk, therE is nobody like LUIS JIMENEZ

  64. Lu’s Jimenez. Need to come back. This fool moon shadow is wack. Corny, not funny so ever , rude , dum. Com back luis.

  65. Luis is the most talented in the whole industry I don’t understand why would they do this. He has a diverse audience and everybody admires his committment, energy and also his connection to the listeners. Not only will I no longer tune in to that station but I’m also not allowing the network to be viewed at my house.

  66. this is one of the best radio show in the world ,we are sad to here this .very STUPID BY THROWING LUIS AND the entire staff,we are asking friends; Corp Owner; stores etc o all spanish community not to watch STUPEDVICION new channel for univicion 41 …. to all our employees sorry i hope you can work with the same enthusiasm .. as per the CORP DECISION BIG MISTAKE …

  67. Worse move ever. I will not listen the Mega anymore until the LJS returns on his regular scheduled time. Bye Bye Mega
    BTW-Hope the next Spanish Radio picks him up.

  68. Are u kidding??? I listened to his show every morning after my long night shift and I laughed out loud to myself in the car and it kept me awake! What a waste it is now to not listen to my favorite show. It is no longer in my set stations in my car. Ratings are gonna suck now!!!!

  69. jose luis Says:

    This is by far the stupidest mive univision has done…why would they even thing of canceling the number one morning show ….i cant stand imitators (vacilon) shino trying to do narasio errrr BRING BACK LUIS JIMENEZ SHOW!!!!

  70. Go to satellite radio luiz!!!!

    • I THINK EVERYONE AGREES WITH ME WHEN I SAY BOYCOT UNIVISION.
      WE SHOULD TEACH THEM A LEASON AND PAY THEM WITH THE SAME MEDICINE THEY GAVE US. SHUT THEM DOWN, NO MORE LISTERNERS
      WE ARE THE MAJORITY IN THIS COUNTRY.
      THE HAVE TO LEARN A LEASON.
      BRING BACK LUIS JIMENEZ, LUIS MAKES THEM ENOUGHT MONEY TO OFFER HIM, WHAT IT TAKES TO BRING HIM BACK.
      JUST DO IT

  71. MARIBEL UTATE Says:

    I GO AWAY ON VACATION COME BACK AND MY FAVORITE RADIO SHOW IS CANCELLED, THESE PEOPLE HAVE NO BRAINS, THEY SHOULD BE CANCELLED, AS FOR ME BYE BYE UNIVISION, T.V. AND RADIO, NOTHING WORTH WATCHING OR LISTENING. GOOD LUCK LUIS JIMENEZ TE APOYAMOS 100%

  72. Luis Diaz Says:

    Can’t believe the master of talk radio has been unplugged , Luis if you can read this find your way to radio and we’ll sponsore you one dollar at a time , Latinos unidos .

  73. Emily Gonzalez Says:

    Boycotting Univision. I am tired of their mexican shows, they suck. Latinos or hispanics means all the countries that speak spanish not only Mexico. I already started watching real news in other channels because their news is only Mexico or immigration. I am done.

  74. SSG Alejandro Says:

    I can’t believe this, I listing to Luis Jeminez and his crew all the way from Afghanistan during my deployment , I am not an expert on the ratings. But as an avid fan, is just crazy the move that Univision made. It don’t matter where Luis and his crew land, I will be listening , we are NOT fans of radio stations but fan of Luis Jimenez and cast…..

  75. I think Luis is a comical genius…but ever since he left La Mega his crew has SUCKED!!!Fey? Guevin? Speedy? C’mon now.

  76. I agree!!! The Luis Jimenez show was and always will be the number one show. They need to bring the show back. That show was perfect, funny and incredible. They should replace whom ever made this ludicrous decision. Obviously they do not understand their Listeners.
