Enrique Santos and Joe Ferrero of El
Vacilón de la Mañana on WXDJ El Zol (95.7 FM) have resigned from their hosting positions.
This DJ'ing pair (Santos pictured left, Ferrero right) is
famous for pulling an on-air prank to Cuban President Fidel Castro and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez back in 2003.
Everyone, from employees at Spanish Broadcasting Systems to regular listeners, have been taken by surprise.
Santos told Hispanic Market Weekly that he and Ferrero acted after Liliana Rodríguez, host of El Zol’s afternoon show and daughter of singer José Luis ‘El Puma’Rodriguez, made fun of Vacilón during her first stint as afternoon drive
host. ''She was laughing, saying we've had enough of El Vacilón, things are gonna change,'' Santos told The Miami Herald.
It seems to me that these pranksters couldn't handle being on the other said of the joke. Like I tell my good friend Steve who LOVES pulling pranks but hates being made fun of: If you can't take it, don't dish it.
