TODAY: Breaking Down MTV’s VMAs, J-Lo & Marc Anthony, Rob Lowe’s Roast

08.29.2016 | By |

This TODAY show segment I did this morning on Kathie Lee & Hoda was absolutely cool. It was bicultural and it felt like an extension of me and my HIGHLY RELEVANT podcast, which you should listen to if you haven’t. Overall, it was just fun to talk about the Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony event which was such a Latino subject, since the concert was in Spanish, with salsa music and the song No Me Ames is a Spanish-language tune. Also, I enjoyed being able to discuss my dissatisfaction with MTV’s VMAs on my podcast, then break it down the morning after on national TV. Truly a blessing for a professional in the pop culture industry. Hope you enjoy it!

‘Highly Relevant’ Podcast Ep. 3: Latin Music, Horror Films, MTV’s VMAs

08.26.2016 | By |

I’m 3 weeks in doing the Highly Relevant podcast and it’s been a wondrous experience. I LOVE pop culture, but I detest the idea of having it be limited by a single language or culture. I want to talk to both sides of who I am – American and Latino. By tapping both sides, I get to discuss subjects that only enrich the conversations I’m having. There’s a global, international vibe to the dialogues I conduct and this third episode is a nice example of it. Read More

Only 2 Latinos Were Nominated For A 2016 Emmy… Anthony Mendez Was 1 Of Them

07.14.2016 | By |

He’s 2 for 2 now. Dominican voiceover talent Anthony Mendez has held the fort down once again for the Jane the Virgin camp (even powerhouse Gina Rodriguez hasn’t been able to get an Emmy nod) garnering a second Emmy nomination and only one of two Latinos nominated this year. How cool and large is that? (btw, how is it Gael Garcia Bernal, Oscar Isaac weren’t nominated?) Last year I had the pleasure of meeting up with Mendez for an NBCLatino story I was doing, at his home in New Jersey. We sat down to discuss the reaction of his first Emmy, the struggle and appreciation behind it and a look at his home-studio and how much his family is a part of his success. Mendez drops it from the heart, dude almost made me cry. Have a #TBT look below…

2014: The Year Network TV Became Diversified

05.27.2014 | By |

You can probably count on two hands the number of shows that have had a Latino lead or Latino cast in an English-speaking show that aired on network television until 2007 when “George Lopez” had its final episode. But now in 2014 alone there are about 12 shows that have a Hispanic leads or co-stars! It’s obvious that we’ve come a long way, and so in celebration of this feat, here are the shows airing in 2014 that feature Latino talent: Read More
