The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will honor radio personality Renán Almendárez Coello, the famous El Cucuy de la Mañana, with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday, November 25, 2014 at 11:30 a.m. PST. The star in the category of Radio will be unveiled at 6141 Hollywood Boulevard in front of the newly developed Eastown. “The veteran Renán Almendárez Coello has kept us tuned to the radio for his laughs, jokes and comforting words that bridged effortlessly borders and cultures,” said Leron Gubler/Ana Martinez. “His voice has inspired many generations and we are honored to welcome him on our famous Walk of Fame to immortalize his dedicated achievement.”

Helping Emcee Leron Gubler, President & CEO of the Hollywood Chamber to unveil the star will be guest speakers Singers Graciela Beltran and Tony Melendez.

Renán has an amazing true story in the history of the entertainment world. He currently has a radio show, El Cucuy De La Manana on Los Angeles XEWW, 690 AM. The show is syndicated across the United States, from Los Angeles to Florida.

For seven years from 1996 through 2009, he successfully delivered a continued run in the first-place within the radio industry in Los Angeles.  The unprecedented accomplishment elevated Renán to fame and popularity. His is the most-listened-to voice in radio, and has the highest loyalty of listeners in the history of Los Angeles, with a broadcast track record spanning 24 years.

Born in Honduras, where Renán Almendarez Coello began his radio career at age 15 and moved to the United States in 1982. Renán came to the United States with a dream of becoming a radio personality, repeating the success he tooled in his native country. Due to his astonishing ability to communicate with his audience, Renán’s career sky-rocketed to heights never seen before in some of the most challenging markets in the United States: Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Miami, Phoenix and Las Vegas.

The radio show is a mix of talk, audience calls, jokes and serious life advice. His laugh medicine provides daily doses of remedies for those who are ill and seek hope. His radio show has become an outlet for many Hispanic immigrants who do not have a forum to voice their opinions and express their thoughts.

For more than twenty years, Renán has been one of the top-ranking radio host in the Los Angeles market. His show El Cucuy de la Mañana successfully secured ABC Radio Network Syndication in 20 cities. Renán was named R&R Latin Formats Personality/Show of the Year, 2005. His book: En la Cumbre de la Pobreza (At the Height of Poverty) by HarperCollins Publishers became a best-seller.

Renán’s charisma and persona is not only about entertaining and making people laugh with his unique style of humor. His charitable contributions of time, effort and money have made him as famous as his radio career has proven his star-power status. He used his voice to raise funds in times of natural disasters, as well as successfully raise awareness on campaigns such as on immigration and voter registration. He also wanted to give back to the community and to not forget his humble origins. In 2002, Renán formed the El Cucuy Foundation and opened the El Cucuy Help Center (Centro de Ayuda El Cucuy) to provide help and referrals to thousands of people in Los Angeles. This effort was a natural extension of the charitable work he had been doing for years.

Peter Jackson is one of the world’s most successful filmmakers. One of his monumental achievements, “The Lord of the Rings” Trilogy, which he directed, as well as co-wrote and produced along with fellow Academy Award® winners and frequent collaborators Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, collectively earned a total of 30 Academy Award nominations, winning 17 Academy Awards, including Best Picture for the final film. Jackson and Walsh had received in 1995 their first Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay for their acclaimed film “Heavenly Creatures.”

Jackson once again plunged into the world of Middle-earth to direct, co-write and produce a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The first film in “The Hobbit” Trilogy, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” was released in 2012 and earned over $1-billion worldwide and three Academy Award nominations. The second film, “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” released in 2013, earned over $950-million and earned three Academy Award nominations.

Jackson’s most recent film is the third and final installment. As with the first two films in The “Hobbit” Trilogy, the final film is a production of New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM), with New Line managing production. The film will be released by Warner Bros. worldwide on Wednesday, December 17, 2014, with select international territories releasing on December 10, 2014, in High Frame Rate 3D (HFR 3D) in select theaters, other 2D and 3D formats, and IMAX®.

Jackson, through his New Zealand-based WingNut Films banner, also was responsible for the globally successful 2005 remake of “King Kong,” which earned over $500-million worldwide and three Academy Awards. More recently, Jackson directed the Academy Award-nominated “The Lovely Bones,” an adaptation of the acclaimed best-selling novel by Alice Sebold. He also produced the global sensation ‘District 9,” which received an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture. Jackson also produced, with Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy, “The Adventures of Tintin,” which was directed by Spielberg. The film won, amongst many other awards and nominations, the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature and the Producers Guild of America Award for Animated Motion Picture Producers of the Year. The movie is the first of three, based on the world-renowned comic book series by Hergé, and Jackson will direct the second film in the trilogy.

Jackson has been active in enriching and promoting the arts, as well as supporting worthy humanitarian causes, including stem cell research and civil rights. In his home town of Wellington, he has helped ensure the preservation of key historical sites and theaters, as well as chairing the 14–18 Aviation Heritage Trust. He has also mentored young filmmakers and employed hundreds of actors, artists, craftspeople and technical crew from the U.S., New Zealand, and all over the world on his films and other projects.

Jackson was made a Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit in 2002. He was later knighted as a Knight Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit in 2010.
