Sadly, abuelita's favorite FM emisora is no more.

Miami's WRMA, Romance 106.7, has dropped its Spanish-language adult contemporary format for a Spanglish party music concept. And next week, the station's reintroducing a familiar voice -- DJ Laz -- to local airwaves.

Last night, Crossfade's Broward County sister blog, Country Grind, reported the news that Laz's syndicated West Coast show will air on "Miami's New #1 Party Station," DJ 106.7, beginning July 4.
Laz's return to the Miami airwaves would've likely happened sooner, but the "pimp with the limp" had a non-compete clause with Power 96. Nevertheless, Laz's inevitable return to Miami radio happened quicker than expected.


"I'm not leaving Miami for Los Angeles," he assured Crossfade in May. "I'm going to share. It's like having two women. I'm going to give them each about 50-percent attention. But when I'm with either Miami or L.A., they get my 100-percent attention."

Already, DJ 106.7 is running promos for Laz's return, likening the DJ's homecoming to the United State's secession from British rule: "We're going to laugh. We're going to cry. This fourth of July, we celebrate Laz's Independence Day."

Online, Laz's fans are expressing their excitement by posting well wishes on his Facebook page.

"Awesome news!" says one fan. "Can't wait to hear you in Miami again."

"Thats what im fxkn talking about!!! Take over my niggas! That new power 96 sound like fckn 99 jams!" says another.

As for Laz, the radio veteran appears humbled by this welcome, taking time to thanks his suppporters with a simple message: "I love you all... Become a fan of new station."

In Miami we have a diverse culture with mixed interest of music. For those of you who graduated in Miami 88-95 really enjoyed the mixed lyrics DJ Laz aired. He played them all from Elton John, Bon Jovi, Johnny O, 2 Live Crew ect. ect.  I'm glad he made the change to go back and play the mix he always did.

everyone complains and posts their opinions about "chusmeria" or the REFiness, DJ LAZ has been on the airwaves 20+ years, has released albums and produced for many up and coming artists, all everyone here talking negatively is hating, keep the hating to yourselves, no one give 3 shits about your opinion, if you dont like the music, then change the station, quit your whinning and bitching, keep that shit to yourselves, you complainers sound like a bunch of lil bitches

Glad DJ LAZ is coming back too Miami airwaves, I agree with everyones posting but LAZ has done so much for Miami and deserves too be back on their airwaves. Hate that they had too change romance all the older people's liked but truly that station was losing people hearing them truly a boring station. All Miami station now play English and Spanish hits, with hardly no salsa or merengue, Bachata, Reggaeton that's what Miami really needs too do Change their so called Spanish stations back too tropical music format. And I think this new DJ 106.7 should play everything English hip-hop dance songs, but alot more Spanish Salsa, merengue dance classics ... Frankie Ruiz, Marc Anthony, Los Hermanos Rosario, Oro Solido and Also Bachata real artist ... Frank Reyes, Monchy y Alexandra and Reggaeton ... the new and old stuff ... Sir Speedy, Tego Calderon, Farruko, J Alvarez, Don Chezino. Come on LAZ lets show them What Miami music sounds like meaning more tropical music mixed with English, Pitbull, Flo Rida, Chris Brown, Rihanna. Let's take power 96 off the Map, make Mega 94.9 and Especially once a great tropical station when called La Kalle now Garbage Mix 98.3 all jealous. Independence Day I can't wait.

BOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Two thumnbs down. This guys is  a clown, he laugh way to loud and is a fake Cuban tough guy. He gives Cubans a bad name. I hate you DJ Laz, If I saw you  in the streets you would not be the Pimp with the Limp. you would be the Pimp in the wheel chair, because I would take a crow bar and bash both your knees in. I then would bash your face to make sure you cant talk no more.

Agree like the mixes need too do mini mixes all day. Instead of the same repeats. Spanish and English, stuff that's new and recent and older classic's. Love the old skool Merengue con Hip-hop, Salsaton, Reggaeton, Freestyle, Bachata, Funk, also Reggae man. Love when everything is all mixed up.

I was a south Florida resident for a lot of years. Wasn't big lip bandit on 99 jams a while back. No wonder he hates laz. He can't pull ratings like laz can. I had the pleasure of working with laz quite a few times over at beasley broadcasting. Truly is a Hell of a guy and I'm glad its all working out for him. Miami help laz get the ratings in the Miami market. Especially in the 25-54 demographic

YOU are what gives Miami a bad name. This clown you call with his limp has made it way farther than your keyboard typing fingers ever will.  In the end like they say negative publicity is good publicity.... keep bringing him the fame and money you donkey....
