Meet hostess Sylvana Tróccoli. Three kids. Two ex-husbands. A few young boyfriends here and there. A woman with a PhD in the University of Life, tackles everyday problems without text book formulas, and tries to solve them the old-fashioned way, paying attention! Armed with a lifetime of experiences, using common sense and a good dose of humor, Sylvana will make you laugh, cry, even blush. But she will always leave you with something to really think about.
Prohibido para Mujeres will be a podcast like no other! For Sylvana, NOTHING is taboo. Prohibido para Mujeres is: Dear Abby on stilettos. All of the Sex & the City ladies merged in one person. As open as Dr. Ruth, as shocking as Howard Stern, but, with the kindness of Mr. Rogers.

My career in radio started in 1980 in Houston Texas where I worked for the major Spanish radio stations there at that time KEYH RADIO 85, KXYZ RADIO 13 and 1010 AM La Tremenda de Houston, now a Univision Radio Station.
I made the big move to Miami, Florida in 1985 where I worked in a couple of small radio stations until being discovered by Antonio ‘Cuco’ Arias, Producer for Sabado Gigante in 1988 and I went to work with Don Francisco as the original ‘Mazola girl’ doing a contest all across the country for the famous show.
Even without much experience in television, Mario Kreutzberger was very impressed with my presence and delivery in front of a TV camera! I had a great time for the whole year doing that segment on the best show on TV ever.
Shortly after that ended I started working for HBC Broadcasting which was later bought by Univision Network, until the year 2011.
I’m independent, assertive, optimistic, talkative, an all around fun person! I try to stay active… love DANCING, love to travel, the beach, going to baseball games, and cooking!!!
