Atlanta’s first Latino-owned and produced cable television program, Que Buena Tele, was scheduled to launch on Sunday, July 29, and is expected to air every Sunday on Channel 33 from 5:30-7:30 p.m., featuring local Hispanic news, business and family entertainment.

          The Spanish-language show is a great opportunity to showcase the city’s Hispanic entrepreneurs and notable figures, address local political issues affecting Hispanics and better inform Hispanics about the amenities Atlanta has to offer, Marvin Rivera, the show’s producer, told GlobalFax at a demo viewing prior to the program’s launch.

          “This is an historic moment for Atlanta Latinos and a perfect time to introduce Channel 33 to our city,” said Bernardo Méndez, press attaché for the Mexican Consulate General here, who is leaving his post this week after years in Atlanta. Mr. Mendez will be the new trade commissioner for the Mexican Consulate in San Francisco.

          Javier Macias, the owner of Que Buena Tele, also owns a local Hispanic radio station, Radio Que Buena, 1550 AM/101.9 FM. Contact Mr. Rivera at (770) 934-0848.

Mr. Mendez will continue to be a resource for Atlanta’s international business community through his work with Mexican companies in San Francisco. He may be reached at
