Anthony Donatelli ’15 began his broadcasting journey at CSUSB’s Coyote Radio where he learned the ins and outs of hosting, scripting and other operations in a radio station.
After enrolling in the Coyote Radio Practicum, Donatelli was inspired to host two morning sports shows, handled interviews for the syndicated radio program “My Awesome Empire” and was a 2015 finalist for Media Talent of the Year at the first-ever Inland Empire Media Awards.
As a result of his education, skills, training and experience, Donatelli landed a position at CBS Radio at its Inland Empire Station, K-FROG 95.1. He works in the web department as the social media coordinator, contributes to KFROG.com as a staff writer and is on-air weekend mornings as "Anthony Frogatelli."
Donatelli’s success came from his passion for radio and work ethic.
