Entravision/Phoenix Tackles SB 1070
June 1, 2010 at 5:29 PM (PT)
ENTRAVISION's four PHOENIX radio stations (KDVA, KMIA-A, KVVA, KLNZ) broadcast a live special program called "Informaté ARIZONA" on THURSDAY, MAY 27th from 6p-7p that attracted thousands of listeners. The four stations aired the special to address the issues and questions surrounding ARIZONA’s new law SB 1070, which requires state and local law enforcement to determine immigration status.
KMIA-A air personality ERICK MONROY hosted a panel of participants who answered questions via phone and text messages from listeners.
"Our listeners have a lot of questions about how SB 1070 impacts them, their families and our local communities, and this special broadcast helped bring them up to speed and understand the ramifications of the new law," ENTRAVISION Chairman/CEO WALTER F. ULLOA said. "The issues around this legislation and immigration in general are growing more complicated by the day, and it’s important that we continue to positively promote civic engagement by giving our audiences an opportunity to engage and discuss what’s happening in their community and state."
