The Tennessean report says that the show has been taped in Nashville three times a year, a week at a time, for the past five years, and that this is the first time a local audience will be used for the taping. The use of local audience members is intended to grow the show's viewership, according to the Tennessean.
The live recording will take place today from 2 to 6pm, and an audience of 100 people is needed. Today's guest is Fernando Arau, one of the hosts of Univision's Despierta America. The taping is free, and audience members will also receive gifts.
From the report:
"We would like to reach out to the Hispanic community in Nashville, which is becoming very prominent," said Rafael Barreiro, producer of Club 700 Hoy. "The heart of the program is to give the Hispanic community hope."Local minister Rev. Anibal Pena of Iglesia Monte Los Olivos told the Tennessean that he would like to see the show air more frequently than its current broadcast schedule. The show can be viewed Sundays at 6am Central Time on Galavision, and on the show's web site club700hoy.com.
