LOOKING TOWARDS “WASHINGTON HEIGHTS”

Washington Heights,” a new reality show featuring a group of young Latino friends who live in the New York City, is scheduled to premiere on January 9, 2012.  This week, we invited listeners to tweet out their thoughts on the show.

For next week, we’ve invited a few of our friends from the Washington Heights neighborhood to watch the first two episodes and share their reaction.

If you watch the premiere, let us know what you think.
