Línea Abierta

Línea Abierta is the first — and only — national live talk and call-in program in public broadcasting interconnecting Spanish-speaking audiences and newsmakers throughout the United States and Mexico.  Each weekday, Línea Abierta offers an hour of news, analysis, features, interviews, round-tables, special series and listener call-ins on current events, health, jobs, politics, the environment, education, the arts and culture, race relations and immigrant rights, and more. Diverse guests and audience members exchange views and crucial information, as our experienced hosts lead the dialogue.  Radio Bilingüe launched Línea Abierta in 1995 to meet the void of intelligent, thoughtful Spanish language and Latino-oriented public affairs programming in public and commercial media — and it is still unmatched today, carried by 75 stations across the nation. Available free to stations via satellite, content deport and radiobilingue.org.
