Patricia Dalmasy de-Lucio, host of the VOA Spanish Service's current affairs program devoted to Latin American issues, Foro Interamericano,
is accustomed to broadcasting news to over 26 million people weekly throughout Latin America. But recently she participated in the roundtable segment of a show that reaches audiences in the United States: ABC's bi-lingual show, Hispanic Agenda,
hosted by Alejandro Negrón.
Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Dalmasy de-Lucio came to Washington, D.C. to pursue a bachelor’s degree in International Relations and Affairs and a master’s in Political Science at American University. After nearly 10 years of working at the Office of Cuba Broadcasting, Dalmasy de-Lucio moved to Brazil, where she added Portuguese to the list of languages she speaks. Upon her return to the U.S., she worked as a consultant for a broadcast and social marketing firm, before receiving a call to join VOA’s Spanish Branch. As the anchor of VOA’s Foro Interamericano,
Dalmasy de-Lucio has interviewed heads of state and many other distinguished guests.
Her extensive experience and knowledge were on display during the Hispanic Agenda
program, where she discussed the American-Hispanic population’s great faith in the American Dream, an Arlington judge’s case-load of undocumented immigrants, and the controversy over Coca-Cola’s America the Beautiful Super Bowl commercial. Joining Dalmasy de Lucio in the lively roundtable discussion were fellow panelists John Gonzalez of ABC 7 and Alberto Avendaño of El Tiempo Latino
Fluent in English and Spanish, she is ideally suited to the bi-lingual format of Hispanic Agenda
, which airs its English version of the program on Washington D.C.’s ABC News Channel 8 and its Spanish version on Telemundo Washington.
