Neil Saavedra is from a family of 7 kids and is a native Angelino. Neil came to “America’s most listened to” news talk radio station, KFI AM 640, in March 1994 as an intern and has never looked back.
From 2004-2008 Neil was the co-host of the television show, “Breakfast Lunch and Dinner” where his two loves of food and talking collided in a talk show where everyday folks and celebrities discussed current affairs over a meal.
Neil now hosts The Fork Report Saturdays from 2-5pm on KFI AM 640, a show that covers all things food and all things food related. The Fork Report was awarded a Golden Foodie Award for Best Food Radio Show back to back in 2014 and 2015 from The OC Restaurant Association.
As an avid home cook and a self admitted “food geek”, Neil is always trying new restaurants and eateries and purchasing new cooking gadgets, but he is also quick to point out, he’s not a food expert…he’s a food enthusiast!
Neil’s philosophy is; food snobs should relax and come down a notch to break bread with the “every-person” and the “every-person” who refuses to try new things should go on a culinary adventure and explore new flavors and textures.
