Activa serves up home-grown radio

The Tennessean reports in this article that Nashville's WNVL Activa radio is beaming Spanish-language Nashville-based DJ's to its growing audience:

"McSweeney's vision for the station was 'to have a DJ in every major day part,' especially the drive times, and he just fulfilled that goal."

"Now, he has local voices beaming over the airwaves from early morning to late night, Monday through Saturday."

"His DJs include Ricardo Cardenas ('El Gallo') and Janet Abeja ('La Barbie') on from 6 to 11 a.m., Ally Nambo ('La Tremenda') from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Alexis Luna ('El Grenas') from 3 to 7 p.m., and Noelia Fuentes ('La Bori') from 7 to 11 p.m. Covering traffic is Gloria Saucedo, and Al Cadenas has a 10 a.m. Wednesday show offering insurance and financial advice. Jose Falconette, a native Venezuelan, checks in at 1 p.m. Saturdays with 'Todo Deportes' ('Total Sports'), however his program is on hiatus until the World Cup concludes."

"Other Spanish-language radio stations in the Nashville area include:
• WMGC, La Sabrosita (810 AM), 24 hours a day
• WKDA, Latina (900 AM), 24 hours a day
• WHEW, La Ley (1380 AM), 5 a.m.-10 p.m. daily."
