Miami, FL – Eduardo Gonzalez Rubio, the radio disc jockey who has been called the Spanish voice of the Miami Marlins, has been honored by having a street named after him.

On Dec. 7, Miami-Dade County Commissioner Javier Souto participated in a ceremony co-designating Southwest 89th Avenue from Miller Drive to Southwest 72nd Street as “Eduardo Gonzalez Rubio Avenue.”

“Eduardo is not only a legendary disc jockey but also a great philanthropist and tireless advocate of Miami’s Cuban exile and elderly communities, and he richly deserves this honor,” said Commissioner Souto, who sponsored the September 17 County Commission resolution that authorized the street renaming.
