The Martis At Calle Ocho
In a programming first, Radio and TV Martí broadcast live from the “Calle Ocho” Carnival on March 13 from the heart of “Little Havana” in Miami, a symbol of the Cuban exile community. A noteworthy highlight was giving festival goers the opportunity to send greetings from the street party to family and friends in Cuba.
Thousands came to join hosts from Marti’s popular shows Revoltillo, Las Noticias Como Son and Revista De La Noche in five hours of live broadcasts from the 15 block festival of Latin food and music. Marti provided online coverage with up-to-the-minute pictures, posting Twitter updates, and uploading live feeds to Facebook and Youtube.
