The Miami-Dade Democratic Hispanic Caucus’ Spanish language radio program, Democracia Al Dia, on Actualidad Radio 1020 AM in Miami-Dade county and 1040 AM in Broward and Palm Beach counties, has been on the air for over a month on Saturdays at 10:30 am, and is having an impact on the South Florida political scene.
Hosted by Millie Herrera, president of the Miami-Dade Democratic Hispanic Caucus, with co-host Hector Caraballo, president of the Miami-Dade Cuban American Democratic Club, the program presents a summary of the week’s top headlines and guests of national, state and local prominence to discuss the topics of interests to our community, in a balanced and open conversation.
“In an election year where the Hispanic vote in Florida will be of much interest to both parties, it is very important to have an outlet to communicate the Democratic Party point of view on current issues,” said Millie Herrera, “Democracia Al Dia has the mission of being an important source of information for our South Florida Spanish speaking community.”
Some of the prominent guests that have participated in Democracia Al Dia, in order of appearance, include former City of Miami Mayor Maurice Ferree, former candidate for Congress Annette Taddeo, former City of Doral Councilwoman Sandra Ruiz, State Representative Luis Garcia, US Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, California Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez, California Congressman Xavier Becerra, Dr. Manrique Iridate, community activist and candidate for State Representative Jose Javier Rodriguez, executive director of CODI Carlos Pereira, and Jose Parra, spokesperson for US Senate Leader Harry Reid.
“Democracia Al Dia is quickly becoming a strong voice in our community,” says Hector Caraballo. “We provide a balanced view of current news that is sometimes difficult to find in South Florida. Our Hispanic community is very diverse and is responding very positively to a fresh new alternative for news and commentary in our radio airwaves.”
Democracia Al Día broadcasts live weekly in Actualidad Radio 1020 AM in Miami-Dade County and simultaneously on 1040 AM in Broward and Palm Beach counties, with live streaming on the Internet at www.DemocraciaAlDia.com.
