The Latin American connection to the Middle East – CKUT 90.3 fm

Arndell LeBlanc | jhrC President

The current revolutionary climate that has spread across the Middle East has changed more than just dictatorial powers, it is changing international politics and policies.

International relationships are changing. Latin America is becoming an ever increasing power on the global stage. I spoke to long time CKUT friend and RCI producer Rufo Valencia on how revolutions and politics an ocean across, effect Latin America.

Rufo Valencia is a Bolivian-Canadian journalist. He worked as a community radio volunteer in programming at Radio Continental, a station owned by the union of factory workers in La Paz, Bolivia. After three years studying communications at the Catholic University, he pursued a degree in literature at the Universite de Montreal. He came to CKUT as a volunteer in 1992, where he became Spoken Word Coordinator and helped later in the administration of the station. Currently he works as a presenter-producer at Radio Canada International.

This originally aired on Montreal’s CKUT 90.3 fm on the Wednesday Morning After Show. Tune in  7 – 9 am for the Morning After Shows.
