Of community. For community.

JMPRO TV creates bilingual community media in Western North Carolina. Our platform builds connection and celebrates culture. We address topics such as racial equity, immigration, education, and health care – centering the voices of people most directly impacted by these issues.

The JMPRO team (pictured below) and our community reporters reflect the makeup of our audience. Having identified language barriers as a critical challenge in connecting the Latinx community to civic, economic, social, and educational opportunities in WNC, our multilingual reporting offers an alternative media source for Spanish-speakers in this area.

Currently we host livestream conversations on Facebook every Monday and Wednesday, and radio shows on Asheville 103.3 FM every Tuesday and Thursday from 7 pm until 8 pm. We also provide live coverage of significant community events.
