“Fue un día de sentimientos encontrados en La Voz en Radio Kingston hoy. Por un lado, tuvimos una noche inolvidable en los Oscars … Mejor director, mejor película, mejor película de animación, mejor canción original, se entiende, varios premios Oscar para los latinos.

Luego, sobre negocios con Sandra Salguero (Latinos in Business Success), radio con Juve Santiago (Juan 95.7 FM), comunidad con Marco Ochoa (MA Ochoa Home Improvements) y DACA con Alan Perez y Margarita Hernandez (Nadie se va del Mid-Hudson).”
