Interview with Humberto Cintron on July 30, 2013, Segment 1

CENTRO: 100 Puerto Ricans Oral History Project, 2013-

Cintron discusses how he started the first Spanish-language television programming in New York City. The programs included subtitles both in Spanish and English for non-Spanish speaking Latinos. This was very important because Puerto Ricans and Latinos were not represented in media in a positive way at that time, and these programs provided a more diverse view of Puerto Rican and Latino culture.
