Moreno was a respected mechanic and joined KNPR’s State of Nevada several times as a subject matter expert for our “car talk” shows. His kindness, expertise, humor and willingness to lend a hand helped listeners in need solve their vehicle problems. He will be missed by the KNPR team, his family, friends, and employees.
"Totally an awesome experience!" Moreno wrote on social media, after joining the show for the first time. "Please support Nevada Public Radio, the shop Genuine Auto Services and I by listening in and make sure to see us if you need any automotive repair needs for those daily drivers. Remember those who support you and are there for you before overspending at the big local chain shops!"
His family asked for privacy at this time. No public services will be held.
