Vme TV has announced the composition of its advisory council (Vme TV)

Key members of the Hispanic community will assist in strategic development for Vme TV's objectives and programming for 2014.

Vme TV's 2014 advisory council will consist of influential members of the U.S. Hispanic community, the network announced on Monday. The council will provide insight on Hispanic issues from various ends of the spectrum, including business, community engagement, entertainment, broadcasting and education.

Key members of the council include Patricia Diaz Dennis, former FCC member and chairwoman of the Girl Scouts; entertainer Rita Moreno; and Bill Richardson, former governor of New Mexico.

"It is immensely important to provide Latinos with content that is inspirational, empowering, educational and entertaining," Ms. Moreno said in a news release, "and I'm proud to be part of such an important initiative."

The council will serve to identify how to meet the U.S. Hispanic audience's need for sophisticated Spanish programming that reflects their cultural identity and allows them to maintain their cultural ties as they integrate into the U.S. community, according to the release.

"Each member of the Vme Advisory Council has a distinguished history of entertaining, inspiring and advancing the U.S. Hispanic Community that reflects Vme's core values," Vme TV CEO Eligio Cedeno said in the release.

Vme TV (pronounced veh-meh) is a national Spanish-language television network that partners with public television stations to provide educational and entertainment programming.
