WSTV 13 Broadcast Schedule Tu Comunidad - Informacion de la ciudad español

Two new programs, including the city’s first Spanish-language program for Hispanic residents, are now running on WSTV 13, the Government Channel on TimeWarner Cable.

"Tu Comunidad," (Your Community) is designed to give the city’s Hispanic residents practical information about city services. The inaugural program includes information about how to use the city landfill, how and what to recycle, and how to obtain a roll-out cart and participate in the city’s voluntary curbside garbage collection.

The program was requested by the city’s Human Relations and Neighborhood Services departments. Wanda Allen-Abraha, the director of human relations, says the show will fill a gap in the city’s communication with the Hispanic community.

"Often, we have Hispanic residents who state that they do not know what services the city provides because of the language barrier," Allen-Abraha said. "We are hoping that ‘Tu Comunidad’ will provide the needed link between the Hispanic community and city government."

Additionally, one of the goals of the city’s Neighborhood Improvement Plan is to inform Hispanic residents about the requirements of the city’s housing and neighborhood ordinances, said Ritchie Brooks, the director of neighborhood services. "Tu Comunidad" will help meet this goal, he said.

"Tu Comunidad" is produced by WSTV 13 and hosted by Miriam Hernandez. A new edition of "Tu Comunidad" will be produced every three months. Past episodes will be available for viewing through the city Web site.

A second new program, "Backstage Pass," gives viewers a quick update on upcoming activities at the Winston-Salem Entertainment-Sports Complex. "Backstage Pass" is hosted by Chuck Webster, the marketing director for the complex, and includes activities at the LJVM Coliseum, the Coliseum Annex, historic Ernie Shore Field, the Fairgrounds, and Bowman Gray Stadium. "Backstage Pass" is produced twice a month.

Air times for the new programs can be found on the city Web site.
