LOS ANGELES – Gerardo Ortiz, the popular singer of Mexican corridos, debuts a new facet of his career as television host of the new “Dub Latino” program on Mun2, all about what kind of vehicles Hispanic celebrities drive.
“It’s something totally different for me and at first it was hard to decide whether to do this program or not because it involves so much (work), but we decided to do it because the concept is a perfect fit for Gerardo Ortiz, for my personal life, because I love everything to do with cars,” the singer told Efe.
“And now, being able to know what celebrities think and some of my pals in music as well, and above all, the world of exotic cars and ‘Dub Latino,’ it’s got everything,” said the artist, who has interviewed the likes of Ivy Queen and Prince Royce on his show.
Ortiz shares the spotlight on the program with co-host and model Magda Angel.
“I had my first car at 18 and I’ve always loved sports cars – but in Mexico it was more pickup trucks for the rough tracks around the ranches,” Ortiz recalled about the first vehicle he drove on the dirt roads of the western state of Sinaloa. EFE
