It was during an appointment at a salon 4 years ago, Isa met Sylvia Torres-Piserchio, and the two quickly became friends. Isa wanted Sylvia to join the Latino Espectacular team, but although she knew it was a great opportunity, wasn't quite ready to pull the trigger back then, until now. Sylvia would soon become Director of Marketing and Sales of Latino Espectacular, something she takes great pride in. When Sylvia heard the "Tu Voz con Christina" Radio Show, she recognized a common mission and knew it was only natural that Latino Espectacular Magazine connect with "Tu Voz con Christina". It is Sylvia Torres-Pisercho, who shares her passion by saying "I am so excited and I know that my decision to bring Latino Espectacular Magazine to The Poconos together with The "Tu Voz con Christina" Radio Show can provide a strong base for information, entertainment and support which the Latinos in the Poconos deserve and have been waiting for". Initial run of Latino Espectacular Magazine will be 10,000 and circulated in the areas Walmarts, Shop Rites, Martz Bus Terminals, Wyndham Resorts, Monroe County Library to name a few.

Christina Luna comes from a background in public relations and sales in Barcelona, Spain. She emigrated to New York and quickly became a segment producer at Telemundo TV– covering local events in the Hispanic community for the daily morning magazine show, Acceso Total. At ESU she sensed a need for a radio voice for the growing Hispanic community. A community that was barely recognized before the 2010 Census revealed Monroe County has the third largest Hispanic population in Pennsylvania. She launched ¨Tu Voz Con Christina¨ in April 2011. The Latin community makes up 14 percent of total population in Monroe County, which is the 3rd highest percentage in all of PA*. It is with these impressive stats, and her passion for the community at large, she decided to create a show for the Latin/American segment aimed at events, topics, music and news important to the Latin/American community.
In the year and a half she has been broadcasting, the Pocono Record newspaper has done two full feature pieces on the show and even lauded her on its editorial page. A wide array of professionals, artists, community leaders have taken a chair in her studio and participated in her energetic conversation, lending their voices to Christina´s voice and finding an ear and a voice in her expanding audience. Upcoming guests are Wells Fargo, Inti Cuisine, The United Way of Monroe County, Rep. Rosemary Brown, FLECHA, Mignosis Super Food Town, Dr. Yelena Kipervas and many more.
Christina also has chosen CILA llc Management to assist her in the transition from University radio to a much larger audience. "Once I met Christina, and realized her passion for the community, and her wonderful sense of humor- I just knew we had to work together," says Gil Coronado of CILA llc Management
Christina has been busy supporting many charitable organizations and events including BeatCancer.Org 35 Live, Shawnee Riverfest (benefiting The Salvation Army), The Pocono Hispanic Association, writing her blog "Passport To The Pocono's" in the Pocono Record and so much more.
