Among the interesting people I met at McGovern Day last Saturday were Jackie Diaz and Alex Ramirez of USA Media TV. Their Sioux Falls-baed media company produced La Voz; now they are producing two Spanish-language programs, Al Dia and El Sol TV, focused on helping our Spanish-speaking neighbors connect with the community. These programs are recorded at the Badlands Pawn studio and air on KTTW, the Sioux Falls Fox affiliate. Here’s their promotional video:
Payday lender Chuck Brennan gets merit points for hosting the program in his pawn shop set and for allowing his tenants to interview Lutheran Social Services financial counselor Sara Ramirez (see 2:45 in promo), who, if she’s doing her job, is surely saying every day, ¡No utilice los préstamos de día de pago!
Ramirez and Diaz are promoting their programming and events of interest to the Sioux Falls Hispanic community on the Pulso Hispano Facebook page.
