Felix “King Felix” Albuerne
Prior to discovering his love for the radio industry and sports radio specifically, Felix Albuerne, our own “King Felix at the Movies”, was a teacher on both the high school and college levels. This, more than any other career path (and there have been many – textbook editor, live trivia host, Blockbuster Video manager …), prepared him for the joys of working in a field where one spends lots of time talking to audiences that aren’t really listening.
A graduate of both the University of Miami and University of Central Florida with degrees in Creative Writing and Connecticut School of Broadcasting, Felix comes to 98.7 The Fan after interning on “The Morning MIX with Scott McKenzie” on MIX 105.1, and then for 2 years serving as producer, web content coordinator, and movie critic for “The Rick Stacy Morning Show” on 1059 SUNNY FM, both in Orlando, FL. His favorite sports teams might not make him the most popular personality on The Fan when he cracks the mic to talk about sports – Miami Dolphins, Miami Hurricanes, and … wait for it … the New York Yankees! – but for the most part, he sounds like he knows what he’s talking about when it comes to film, especially for someone who never went to Film School.
Just don’t get him talking about comic books. That’s when he really, REALLY doesn’t shut up.
