Aug. 29, 2014
“To better serve the growing needs of Arizona’s Hispanic community, we’re pleased that Eight is able to provide more opportunities for viewers to watch Horizonte. With a broader range of days and times, we’ll be able to reach an even larger audience beginning in September, and we look forward to making those additional connections in our community,” says Associate General Manager of Content Nancy Southgate.
During Horizonte’s more than 10 years on-air, host José Cárdenas has discussed issues of particular interest to the local Hispanic community, as well as to the community at large, ranging from public policy and education to arts and culture with a variety of civic and political leaders, sports figures and artists, including former Governor Janet Napolitano, Congressman Ed Pastor, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo, comedian Cheech Marin, actor Edward James Olmos, novelist Stella Pope Duarte and dozens more.
“We hope that our current viewers will continue watching during one of the new time slots, and look forward to the opportunity to bring some new viewers on board. Please let us know your thoughts on the show via social media with hashtag #Horizonte, and you can follow @arizonapbs to find out what’s happening every week on Horizonte,” says Cárdenas.
