Say Goodbye To "Nuestro Rincon"
Channel 12's Spanish-language "Nuestro Rincon," buried in the predawn weekend hour, will be replaced in late May by a weekday webcast and Spanish-language website through
The move makes sense to me. It seems like a better way to serve the Hispanice community, by providing written and video content 24/7, plus a two-minute on-demand webcast anchored by Sasha Rionda or reporter Richard Jordan.
"Local 12 News En Espanol" debuts May 26. The final "Nuestro Rincon" will air on May 27, says Elbert Tucker, news director.
Rionda, hired in 2004 to debut "Nuestro Rincon," the city's first and only Spanish-language newscast, has received many complaints about her show's lousy time slot. They air at 5:30 a.m. Saturday and 6:30 a.m. Sunday. "Our goal is to reach more people with stories which are more current," Tucker says.
Ch. 12 GM Chris Sehring announced the Internet initiative to local Hispanic leaders at the Su Casa Hispanic Center’s annual dinner Thursday. "The reaction was extremely positive since people understood that a daily news webcast would provide more timely information that an early morning weekend program,” Sehring says.
The Spanish-language Website also will have written and video content available around the clock, Tucker says. "Local 12 News En Espanol" webcasts also will be made available to the Ohio News Network and all Clear Channel TV stations.
