Alice and surrounding cities, get ready to tune in to a new talk show that will focus on local issues, events and happenings.

KOPY on-air personality Robert Regino and co-host award-winning journalist Ofelia Hunter, Alice Echo-News Journal editor will partner together to bring listeners the scoop of the day.

“It's never a dull moment with my co-host Robert Regino,” Hunter said. “He can come up with some crazy stuff. The talk show is going to shed some light on some issues we are concerned about, whether it's a city, county or a national current event, we will dissect the problem and maybe come up with some solutions.”

The show – Talk South Texas – will air on 1070 AM KOPY from Monday to Thursday from 5 to 6 p.m. On Thursdays, the duo will be on the air live from a remote area.

The first show is Monday, Sept. 24 with guest Alice Mayor Jolene Vanover.

Hunter said the show is another way to connect with the community by using other resources available besides social media.

“I've been wanting to get the talk show off the ground and the first person who came to mind was Ofelia Hunter,” Regino said. “I think we can complement each other so listeners can tune in and get their news while commuting or just relaxing at home.”
