The Montgomery County Council and Radio America have entered into a community partnership that provides the Latino community with key information on issues and programs and provides a forum for residents to express views and ask questions of Councilmembers. The partnership includes the 30-minute weekly show at 2 p.m. each Friday on the Washington Region's most popular Spanish language station.

The show is hosted by Juli Ríos Little. Each week, the show features guests talking about important issues before the Council and occasionally the show provides information about programs offered by the County to help residents and businesses.

In addition to the radio broadcast, the show can be heard via the Internet at: http://radioamerica.net/en-vivo/. A link to an audio replay of each week's show is available at the County Council's web site at: www.montgomerycountymd.gov/council.
