Time Warner Cable’s NY1 Noticias is expanding its public service content. Starting today, the 24-hour Spanish-language local news network launches a biweekly news segment called “El Abogado a Tu Lado” (“Attorney on Your Side”) that aims to bring its audience the latest immigration news.
The “El Abogado a Tu Lado” news segment will feature attorney Nelson A. Castillo, who in addition to providing information on immigration related issues, will answer viewer questions submitted online and via NY1 Noticias’ Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Castillo is an author, television commentator and columnist for impreMedia. The segment will air every Tuesday and Thursday during NY1 Noticias newscasts.
“Our objective is to bring relevant content to our audience,” explains Roberto Lacayo, NY1 Noticias’ Executive Editor about why the network decided to launch the new segment.
“These are very confusing times for immigrants in the US. We hope to shed light on the complex issues and provide a platform where our audience can interact with an immigration expert for guidance.”
