Anthony Sanchez, a 23-year-old bilingual Dominican American born in Manhattan, is gaining traction in the Communications and Media industry. Anthony’s father, Tony Sanchez, a renowned Hispanic radio producer in New York, sparked his son’s interest in radio from a young age.
Anthony knew from a young age that he wanted to pursue a career in Communications and Media, and he began his journey as early as six years old by prank calling people for the hit show El Vacilon de La Mañana. Throughout his education, he honed his skills as a radio show producer, marketer, and creator, culminating in the creation of The Barbershop Podcast. In just one year, the podcast gained a worldwide following and was being listened to in 19 different countries on Spotify alone.
