Bloomington, IN -- ¡HOLA Bloomington! is pleased to announce the launch of several new, distinct radio program offerings including interviews, local and international news, sports, entertainment news, call-in segments offering legal advice, and health education. A public opinion segment, a Spanish language version of EcoReport featuring "news the earth wants you to hear," and a special segment spotlighting Latino members of the IU arts and culture community will also be featured.

The ¡HOLA Bloomington Spanish Language News and Public Affairs radio show aims to provide the Bloomington community with a communication medium for the city's Spanish speakers. For almost one decade, the bilingual show has brought a mixture of news, entertainment and public opinion to Hispanic and non-Hispanic members of the community.

Long time host and radio personality Carlos Gonzalez is looking forward to listeners trying out the new programs.

"The ¡HOLA Bloomington! radio show is an integral part of Spanish language news and entertainment for the community," said Gonzalez. "We hope that by providing a variety of new segments we will be able to cater to a more diverse audience."

¡HOLA Bloomington! is a project of the City of Bloomington Community and Family Resources Department and WFHB Community Radio. The show kicks off its new programming side by side with the annual fall Fund Drive at WFHB. Fundraising efforts allow the station to continue providing thought-provoking shows, local independent news and a variety of different music shows.

¡HOLA Bloomington! airs each Friday from 6 to 7 p.m. on 91.3 FM | 98.1 Bloomington | 100.7 Nashville | 106.3 Ellettsville. It's followed by two hours of Latin music on Hora Latina. For more information, contact Melissa Britton or visit www.wfhb.org.
