Mario Ramos: Nashville's first Hispanic videoblogger

Nashville immigration attorney Mario Ramos* has become the first Hispanic videoblogger in Nashville by uploading a series of interviews and commentaries to the popular web site YouTube. The videos mostly feature commentary on the recent Congressional hearings in Brentwood (story here), and are in both Spanish and English. All of his videos are accessible here.

"Videoblogger" may be too strange a term for some; the intent here is to say that Mr. Ramos is an amateur diarist/journalist using video on the Internet as a method of communication. Mr. Ramos was one of the few Hispanic Nashvillians quoted in the local media in the late 1990's and early 2000's.

Nashville has at least two professional video journalists who are also Hispanic - Amy Napier Viteri and Carlos Jasso; both work for WKRN-Channel 2.

*Mario Ramos is no relation to Nashville attorney and former President of the Nashville Bar Association Gregg Ramos.
