Welcome to CDO Audio

Where Passion Meets Legacy!

 At CDO Audio, we’re more than just a studio; we’re a homage to our roots, a celebration of diversity, and a testament to the enduring power of family. Our story is one of resilience, passion, and a deep love for quality content and audio.

Our Founder

 Allow us to introduce Aracely Rivera, a veteran radio executive with an impressive track record at Univision, CBS Radio, and Entravision. But Aracely is not your typical executive; she’s a passionate producer, podcaster, VoiceOver actor, and a marketer who has left an indelible mark in the ever-evolving world of media.

The Visionary

Aracely’s journey into the realm of audio was guided by her father, the incomparable Melvin Rivera. He’s not just an award-winning consultant, but also a compassionate coach, dynamic speaker, and a highly respected figure in the editorial and media domains. His unwavering pursuit of quality content and audio excellence has ignited the creative sparks in countless content creators. Through initiatives like Via Podcast.Fm, Melvin supports the Spanish-speaking audio professional industry in Latin America and Spain by offering news curation (Via Podcast -daily newsletter), coaching, and networking events.

A Street Named Heritage

Have you ever wondered about the inspiration behind our name, CDO Audio?

It pays homage to our roots, specifically Calle 5 de Octubre in Santa Isabel, Puerto Rico—the very street where Melvin Rivera took his first breath. This charming town and its people were the earliest champions of our co-founder and mentor. «C» for Cinco, «D» for de, and «O» for Octubre—our studio name encapsulates the essence of our origin story.

Melvin's Childhood Home

Pictured here is the house where Melvin grew up, and where Aracely spent her summers. In the past, it even housed a humble storefront where great-grandmother Marcela, who couldn’t read or write, still managed to keep meticulous books of her business.

Honoring Our Legacy

As we reflect on the past, we do so with profound pride and an overwhelming sense of wonder at how far we’ve come. We carry with us the indomitable spirit of our great-grandparents, grandparents, and parents who blazed the trail for us. Their unwavering determination and boundless love for family are the very cornerstones upon which CDO Audio stands.

Join us on this remarkable journey, where innovation gracefully dances with tradition. Together, we continue to push the boundaries of audio excellence. At CDO Audio, we’re not merely crafting audio; we’re preserving a cherished legacy.

Welcome to our family!
