WLTV Launching Sunday Public Affairs Show
Univision-owned WLTV Miami (DMA 16) is debuting a new public affairs show, Al Punto Florida, on April 24 at 11 a.m.
The hour-long Sunday morning program will be hosted by Ambrosio Hernandez and Mariana Atencio and will feature politicians, newsmakers and celebrities discussing issues that affect the Hispanic community in Central and South Florida.
Al Punto Florida will touch upon topics of importance to Hispanics, but it will also explore and go beyond matters related to politics, the station said. A weekly roundtable comprising special guests, regular contributors and television’s most respected experts and analysts will tackle a variety of cultural affairs.
The Al Punto Florida premiere is set to feature a one-on-one exclusive interview by Hernandez with former republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio; a segment led by reporter Carolina Rosario who will discuss the impact of the Hispanic vote in Florida; also, the 2016 Miami-Dade County mayoral race will be a topic of discussion with two of the candidates visiting the studio.
Univision Radio’s Ninoska Perez Castellon and Joe Arriola, chairman of Jackson Health System, will present their views on President Obama’s historic visit to Cuba. Also on tap is a discussion on the latest election polls; and a segment with Fusion’s Mariana Atencio and Enrique Santos, the popular radio/TV host, in which Santos talks about his campaign “Bring Radio Back,” as well as his satirical view on the 2016 election cycle.
