Welcoming Luis Mendoza!


Luis works at Capital Community Television (CCTV) in Salem, OR as the Community Facilitator and loves helping people develop their ideas into programs. Video production started as a hobby for Luis, and has turned into his full time job.

He produces three different Spanish-language programs. CVEL PUNTO is a talk show that covers important information in the Spanish speaking community. The title of the show is a combination of the first letter of the hosts’ names, which combined with “Punto” means “We See the Point”.  His second program is called Conexión con la Salud (Health Connection) which is about eating healthy, staying fit and preventing illness. The third program is Mini Concierto de Studio 77 (Mini concerts of Spanish music). 

He is also the director for a monthly music series called Local Roots, where local bands perform 30 minutes of original music in CCTV’s studios.  English is his second language, which he continues to work hard to master. He likes new challenges, because that’s how you learn and grow.  In his free time, Luis enjoys spending time with family and friends, and working on cars, motorcycles, and electronics.
