Tesoro On The Web: Latino Public Broadcasting

Lpb-295x300  Mi Gente…

Did you know that we had a Latino Public Broadcasting organization? I personally did not…and recently I ran across a PBS newsletter that announced a project called "Latino in 60 Seconds". I watched it and I loved it…especially Grandma's Hip Hop. I must stop (mid post) and say that I wish network TV or even channels like Si TV, MUN 2 and MTV Tr3s picked up some pointers about quality Latino programming. If we support this type of programming it will grow…I have some ideas I can pitch!

Spread the word…we have to promote las cosas bellas de nuestra cultura…

As I am,

 Here is a little bit about Latino Broadcasting 

Latino Public Broadcasting supports the development, production, acquisition and distribution of non-commercial educational and cultural television that is representative of Latino people, or addresses issues of particular interest to Latino Americans. These programs are produced for dissemination to the public broadcasting stations and other public telecommunication entities. By acting as minority consortium, LPB provides a voice to the diverse Latino community throughout the United States.

In 2001, LPB offered a call for emerging producers to create a one minute interstitial that showcased or represented the Latino community for general audiences. Ten projects were selected ranging from animation to biographies. Many of these producers have moved forward in their careers and are NOW producing nationally for public and commercial television. In 2009, the interstitials are now offered online.
