NY1 Noticias Gets Political


NY1 Noticias, Time Warner Cable’s local Spanish-language news channel, is launching a show dedicated to New York City politics, officials said Monday.

Pura Politica Voces de la Ciudad will debut June 3 at 6 p.m. The weekly half-hour show will feature prominent political guests, local elected officials, community activists, reporters and columnists.

“Hispanic New Yorkers will play a major role in who will be running the city the next four years,” NY1 Noticias senior vice president and general manager Steve Paulus said in a prepared statement.

“Much like Road to City Hall on NY1 [New York 1 News], Pura Politica Voces de la Ciudad will be the program for Spanish-speaking New Yorkers to watch for local politics and exclusive and investigative stories, as well as an in-depth analysis of everything happening in the political world of New York City,” he added.
