First operational Hispanic FM radio station in central Georgia
El Gallo 94.3 hopes to bring something a little different to the community.
MACON, Ga. (41NBC / WMGT) – The first Hispanic FM radio station is now live throughout Central Georgia.
El Gallo 94.3 hopes to bring something a little different to the region with some Hispanic music.
“I want my Hispanic community, I want my Latino community to be informed. This is something I’m very proud of, I want our community to know exactly what’s going on, ”said resort owner Steven Lara.
Lara is originally from California, but bought the station to get in touch with Hispanics in the area.
“I am delighted to help bridge this gap between the Hispanic community and the Caucasian or African American community.”
According to Lara, there has been a lot of support for the radio station. They’ve also partnered up with NotiVision Georgia, to help reach more Spanish speaking people with news.
“Now we have contributions and it’s very easy to see our work here,” said Monica Pirela, owner of NotiVision Georgia.
Pirela lived in Central Georgia for approximately 7 years in contact with the Hispanic community. She says the station is very important to the community.
“It’s going to show what we’re doing here because, the entertainment, our culture, our history.”
The community will soon see the station open for Perry.
