HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to “gossip”. In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members or Friends of HOLA who are getting acting, performance or similarly artistic gigs and/or recognition in the media. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface. To see what other HOLA members are doing currently, click here.

Rafael Bello, shown at right, was nominated for three New York Emmys in the categories On-Camera Talent: Anchor-Sports and Entertainment: Program Feature/Segment, the latter for "Pa' la calle con Rafa"; and as part of a team for Best Evening Newscast Under 35 Minutes, for his reporting of the preparation of Superstorm Sandy (all for Telemundo's New York metropolitan area affiliate WNJU). The local Emmy Awards are presented by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) and will take place in New York on March 30, 2014 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Manhattan's Times Square. And while NATAS recently added nine categories to recognize Spanish-language television, Bello is nominated (for his individual nominations) not in those categories but in categories opposite English-language nominees. (WNJU received a total of 18 New York Local Emmy nominations.) For more information, click here.

J.W. Cortés, shown at left, nabbed a role on "Believe" (created by Alfonso Cuarón and Mark Friedman and airing in the USA on NBC).

Susana Pérez booked a voiceover for Publix and an on-camera medical industrial for HCCS.

Dinorah Coronado will be starring in La peluquería de Aurora. Produced by Teatro Coronado, the play is written and directed by Héctor Palacios (based on the book Cuentos y viviencias en Nueva York by Carmen Lazala) and also stars Digna Carvajal, Yunior Ventura, Beneranda Cruz and Raúl Rivera and be presented in March as part of the IV Festival de Teatro Hispano Del Comisionado at the Comisionado Domincano de Cultura en EEUU, located in Manhattan's Washington Heights neighborhood.
