Controversy and Culture Headline East Harlem New Program
A possible African burial ground lying underneath the MTA’s 126th Street bus depot is among the stories featured in show 3 of eHARLEMTV, a hyper-local news series spotlighting the people, places and events of East Harlem and its neighbors.
Never before has the Manhattan community of East Harlem received exclusive news coverage that brings its story to the world. With eHARLEMTV, this vibrant enclave – also known as El Barrio, Spanish Harlem and SpaHa – joins the micro-news revolution taking place in cities around the country. Hosted by broadcasting veteran Fred Noriega, Colombian journalist Edna Oliveros, and introducing actress Lorraine Rodriguez, the half-hour magazine format show features new segments monthly.
“Only a tragedy in East Harlem makes the news,” says George Rivera, creator of eHARLEMTV. “Unlike other news outlets, eHARLEMTV reports all of the things that make this a neighborhood with a story to tell. “ Show 3 features an interview with Rivera about his commitment to East Harlem, along with reports on an El Barrio tradition, Salsa Wednesdays, the street food of the neighborhood, a Cinco de Mayo celebration along 116th Street, and what’s new at the community arts organization, Taller Boricua.
