While in the "news" side of the industry, Manny coordinated coverage of major events such as Hurricane Andrew and its aftermath, the 2000 Election, September 11th, The Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as the 2004 and 2005 Hurricane Seasons. While in the “news” side of the industry, Manny interviewed Presidents and countless other national, state and local politicians, newsmakers, and big names in entertainment and sports.

Now in his 28th year in radio and 24th year in radio news, Manny serves as Co-Host and Executive Producer for South Florida's First News with Jimmy Cefalo on NewsRadio 610 WIOD.
