"Encuentro Latino" a weekly Spanish language show on Boston's Telemundo, has found a new home on the global tube.
Beginning today, the show, which is produced by WBZ-TV (Channel 4)'s "Centro" host Yadires Nova-Salcedo and husband Angel Salcedo, will air three times a week on a popular Dominican Republic news and entertainment talk show called "Que Noche.'' Dominican TV network, Telemicro International, is picking up three 10-minute segments of "Encuentro Latino'' and airing them Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 7:30 p.m.
For the Salcedos, who launched their show from a state-of-the-art studio they built in the basement of their Canton home, the program will have a more international reach. Viewers in the US can tune into Telemicro through Comcast and Time Warner cable. The network is available in markets with large Hispanic communities such as Miami, Puerto Rico, New York and Pennsylvania.
"A lot of Latinos watch Telemicro,'' said Nova-Salcedo, who will still produce her weekly Saturday morning "Centro" news segment for WBZ. "There is such a big Dominican community here and they want to know what is going on in their country through this show like 'Que Noche.' 'But 'Encuentro Latino' is all about the Latin community.''
The show, in its half-hour entirety, will also remain airing at 6 p.m. Fridays on Boston's Telemundo station.
For the past 101 episodes, "Encuentro Latino" has provided another voice in New England's Hispanic community. Angel Salcedo serves as the host, interviewing leaders in Boston's Latino community and highlighting events of interest from the annual Puerto Rican pride parade in Boston to the festivities of Dominican Independence Day at the statehouse in Beacon Hill. The show also delves into topics of pan-Hispanic interest such as diabetes, immigration, finances, and biculturality. Behind the scenes, Nova-Salcedo produces, directs and books guests while Salcedo hosts and edits.
