"Every year we're encouraged by the enthusiasm for our programs and the growth of our brands. This year we're even more excited as stations clearly recognize the powerful, untapped potential represented by U.S. born Latinos," states Robert G. Rose, CEO of AIM TV Group & Executive Producer. "For advertisers who've witnessed the growth from one show in 27 cities to two shows and Specials in over 100 cities, there's clear evidence that our broadcast distribution platform represents the only way to reach a critical mass of U.S. born Latinos with video content."

"We're always on the cutting edge of U.S. Latino culture, covering stories that others don't or won't. This season will be no exception as we up our game and continue to build on the strong connection with our audience," states Renzo Devia, Supervising Producer of the Shows and president of AIM TV's Maximas Productions.

Both shows begin their respective new seasons the weekend of October 6-7th, 2007 along with the highly anticipated launch of their online video network, ALTVNetwork.com. Tentative distribution lists can be viewed at: www.AIMTVGroup.com/altv/season6 and www.AIMTVgroup.com/ln/season4 respectively.
