"The Enrique Santos Show" Broadcasts Live from Israel
LOS ANGELES, October 27, 2022 – iHeartMedia’s The Enrique Santos Show, the Premiere Networks-syndicated program originating from TÚ 94.9 in Miami, is broadcasting live from Jerusalem this week, October 24 - 28, 2022.
Enrique Santos, who also serves as President and Chief Creative Officer of iHeartLatino, was invited by Fuente Latina, a non-profit organization engaging and educating the U.S. Hispanic population about the Jewish world, Israel, and the Middle East through mainstream Spanish-language media.
As part of the remote broadcast, Santos is hosting his popular Spanish-language radio program from the David Citadel Hotel in Jerusalem. He is interviewing local celebrities and notable names from music, pop culture, entertainment, politics and more, including: Rotem Cohen, Mariachi Yerushalaim, Shlomit Salo Stroth, Iván Cárdenas, Lt. Col.Tiran Attia, Fleur Hassan-Nahoum and Special in Uniform, a Jewish National Fund-USA program.
Santos is touring the Holyland with his Enrique Santos Show co-hosts Gina Ulmos, DJ Xtreme, Harold Valenzuela and Julio Ramirez.
Enrique Santos’ historic broadcast from Israel coincides with the news that German sports brand Adidas is severing business ties with rapper and fashion mogul Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, for a series of anti-Jewish rants and racist comments.
During his visit to the Jewish state, Santos sat down for an exclusive interview with Jerusalem’s Deputy Mayor Fleur Hassan-Nahoum. who publicly condemned Ye for spreading antisemitic conspiracy theories. “You cannot go out from a position of power and encourage violence on any group,” said the Deputy Mayor, referencing Ye’s tweet about going “death con 3 on Jewish people.” “His words are not only hurting the Jewish people, but also dehumanizing an entire nation of people, including his fans like my son,” she said.
Of the trip, Enrique said, “I’m thankful to be back in Israel, this time with my entire morning show team and family. One of the many sites we visited was Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust museum, which is a stark reminder of real-life consequences and horrors of what happens when extremists act on anti-Jewish rhetoric and conspiracy theories.”
“Enrique Santos and his beloved co-hosts gave listeners a unique experience they will never forget through their historic live broadcast from Israel,” said Leah Soibel, founder and CEO of Fuente Latina. “The audience went on a journey exploring the Holy Land together with Enrique and Fuente Latina, learning about Israel’s history and diversity. We are grateful that Enrique, a signatory of Fuente Latina’s Latin-Jewish Media and Entertainment Alliance, is sharing the Jewish story with his audience at a time when anti-Jewish conspiracies are on the rise in the U.S. and around the world.” Visit https://news.iheart.com/featured/enrique-santos to find a local radio affiliate or listen to the The Enrique Santos Show on iHeartRadio.
