Councilman Elvis R. Maldonado was recognized by the cast of Univision 23 News at a live newscast held at Losner Park on Friday, April 26 during the Main Street and This is the Dog, Fabulous Food and Fashionable Fido’s event.
Univision 23 newscast team Guillermo Benites, Alina Mayo-Azze, Mario Andrés Moreno, Eduardo Rodríguez , Paola Elorza, and Stephanie Ceverino presented Councilman Maldonado with a plaque to honor him and thank him for his time and support in organizing the first “live” broadcast of Noticias 23 in the City of Homestead. In the past weeks, the Univision news team has been producing a series of news segments focusing on the City of Homestead history, its Hispanic community and the recent naming of Homestead as “The Gateway to the Everglades and Biscayne National Parks.” The Homestead coverage culminated with the live newscast at Losner Park, where Councilman Maldonado was honored.
“I want to thank Univision for bringing attention to the City of Homestead,” said Councilman Maldonado. “They have done an amazing job highlighting our history, our Hispanic business owners and community, our picturesque Historic Downtown area and all the many opportunities in our beautiful city.”
Over 500 people showed up at Losner Park to see Univision’s live broadcast from 6pm to 6:30 pm and to participate in the Fabulous Food and Fashionable Fido’s event. Residents watched and cheered as they witnessed and participated in a live broadcast from one of the largest Spanish television stations in the U.S. During the broadcast people could also be seen enjoying a bite from the Food Truck Invasion and strutting their best friends during the fashionable dog show contest.
