A new Spanish-language public affairs show directed at Hispanics in Florida debuts Sunday.

WLTV-23, the Univision affiliate in Miami, announced Friday that “Al Punto Florida” will be hosted by Univision 23 anchor Ambrosio Hernandez and Mariana Atencio, of Miami-based cable network FUSION. The one-hour show will be broadcast, beginning at 11 a.m., on five Univision affiliates: Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa and Miami.

Hernandez says the show will analyze issues through interviews and journalistic reports on newsworthy topics in Florida and in Latin America. He added in a statement that politics will play a key role in the program, noting Sen. Marco Rubio will be its first guest.

The show is modeled after Univision’s “Al Punto,” a national public affairs show hosted by Univision anchor Jorge Ramos.
