HARTFORD – FOX61 and CW20 are partnering with CT en Vivo, the Spanish language news and media website to provide news and information to Connecticut’s growing Hispanic community.
CT en Vivo (“Connecticut Live”) will broadcast a weekly program “CT en Vivo TV,” each Saturday at 10:30am on CW20, beginning August 3. The program will feature reports, interviews and profiles of people who are making a difference in the Hispanic community.
“This partnership with CT en Vivo will provide news and information to an important segment of our Connecticut audience,” said Jon Hitchcock, President and General Manager of FOX61/CW20. “We look forward to strengthening our relationship with CT en Vivo and providing coverage for Connecticut’s Spanish language population.”
