In 2004, Good Day Sacramento decided to transmit its program in Spanish through the SAP channel. Flavio was in the right place at the right time, as the saying goes, and the rest is history. This is his first time in front of the camera, but his many years in sales aided in obtaining the gift of gab so he feels pretty comfortable on the air.
A native of Argentina, Flavio grew up in the town of Perez until his family migrated to California in 1969. Growing up the Los Angeles area he learned how to speak English when he was 7 years old and now is fluent in both Spanish and in English. He also speaks Italian which he learned from his “nono e nona”, (grandparents) who were from Sicily and Calabria. He also gets to practice with his wife and mother in law who are Italian.
In 2002, Flavio and his wife Elisa decided to leave the concrete jungle for some greener pastures so they moved to Folsom. It was a bit of a culture shock for the better, but have adapted quite well. They miss their family, friends and the beach very much, but are very happy and content with the Northern California life style. Besides, two of their favorite activities are very close by; snow skiing and wine tasting!
As far as sports are concerned he enjoys golf, water and snow skiing but auto racing and autos are his passion. So much so that he is in the process of getting his racing license so he indeed can go racing. Additionally during the summer months, you will find Flavio and Elisa cruising with the top down in their yellow Triumph TR6. So if you pass them by, please wave and say hello.
Flavio can be heard and seen weekday mornings from 5:00 to 10:00 am.
