Univision’s “Primer Impacto” celebrates its 30-year anniversary (includes video story)

The Univision news show “Primer Impacto” celebrated its 30-year anniversary at City Place Doral this past Friday. The show was broadcast live and anchors had the opportunity to celebrate with the public, who had watched them for years on television. 

“Primer Impacto” also received the key to the city of Doral from Mayor Cristy Fraga for its contribution to the Hispanic community. Doral has grown considerably during the past few years, and most of the population is Hispanic.

Artists like Luis Enrique and Bebeto performed live on the show, sharing their talent with the public and spicing up the environment on a Friday afternoon. 

Students from Florida International University’s STEP program, which allows them to work as interns at the network, had the chance to witness the production and to see how a live show works. They also had the opportunity to be in front of the camera on live television. 

Daniela Thoelke, a student from FIU’s STEP program, said “This is so exciting. We get to see this show live, and our family is watching us at home, so it is a cool experience.   

“It is an honor to be part of this show, and there are many more years to go because we have more stories to tell,” said Pamela Silva, an anchor from “Primer Impacto.”

“Primer Impacto” is broadcast Monday through Friday on Univision, Channel 23 at 5 p.m. Eastern time.
