The first English-voiced commercial radio show highlighting Latin Alternative Rock, Hip-Hop, and Electronic music, The Red Zone is music-driven and focuses on artists that reflect the diversity of Latin alternative culture.

The show caters to the vast potential listening audience in the US that wants to hear new music that reflects a bilingual culture. The Red Zone has received great early response from its listeners. Phone calls are received throughout the show vocalizing listeners' support for this unique program. Emails have been received from all over the world from its online listeners, with feedback and song requests received on a daily basis from listeners in cities across the U.S., as well as countries like Chile, Colombia, and Mexico.

Since its debut, there has been growing syndication interest for The Red Zone and plans to expand the show to additional key markets across the U.S., including New York, Miami, San Diego and Texas.
