Radio Bilingüe and Radio Ambulante Announce Joint Partnership
Radio Ambulante and Radio Bilingüe are pleased to announce a new partnership. For the first time, Radio Ambulante’s unique storytelling program will be available on radio stations across Radio Bilingüe’s network in the United States and Mexico. This partnership kicks off with a pilot season of six episodes, produced by Radio Ambulante. Through this new partnership, Radio Bilingüe’s 13 stations, and dozens of affiliates, will air the first Spanish-language storytelling program of its kind in the United States.
The pilot series will consist of six 29-minute episodes, which will air monthly. The first episode airs on September 18th at 6:30 PM PDT and will air monthly on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm PDT.
Radio Ambulante is a radio program that tells Latin American stories from anywhere Spanish is spoken, including the United States. We seek to bring the aesthetic of high-quality long-form journalism to radio. We work with a talented community of storytellers and radio producers from different corners of the continent, while taking advantage of technology to produce, distribute and exchange stories. You can find the program on Radio Ambulante’s website, iTunes, Soundcloud, Stitcher Radio and iVoox. You can also listen to the stories on BBCmundo.com
