Mendoza, who most recently presented the weekend Through the Night show from 1am to 6am, will host an equivalent phone-in show at TalkSport from Monday to Friday from 5 July.
A journalist for more than 30 years, Mendoza has also worked in television, newspapers and showbusiness in the UK, Europe and Australasia. In the UK, he has worked for radio stations including BBC Radio Sussex and Surrey and Radio Mercury.
