Members of the Omaha hispanic community are being asked for their input on a new public television station.

HPTV officials say Latinos and Mexican Americans, will within several generations, be more than 35% of the population in the United States. HPTV is being formed in response to this demographic shift, and to provide news and commentary along with cultural, social and civic programming.

The public is invited to meet HPTV Board members, who will help answer questions about programming, viewing schedules and the mission of HPTV.
