Broadcast students, with the help of broadcast adviser Anthony Garcia, created the Spanish Wolfcast in order to reach out to the Spanish-speaking community at Cedar Park. "We have been testing [the Spanish Wolfcast] out and doing some practice shows this month," Garcia said. "The goal [is] to do a full launch in the next few weeks and role it out and announce it to the school district, announce it to the campus, announce it to parents that way our Spanish-speaking community members and parents are able to feel connected to what's going on at this school and feel like they are informed as well."

Most days, students start their mornings in Den with an episode of the Wolfcast where they have the opportunity to keep up to date with news going on at school as well as be entertained by shows like ‘Doctor Love’ and ‘Cooking with Claire.’ This year broadcast students, with the help of broadcast adviser Anthony Garcia, decided to create a Spanish Wolfcast. 

After discussing the idea with Assistant Principal Tereasa Back and a few broadcast students, Garcia said that they decided to create the Spanish Wolfcast in order to reach out to the Spanish-speaking students at the school. 

“We have been testing [the Spanish Wolfcast] out and doing some practice shows this month,” Garcia said. “The goal [is] to do a full launch in the next few weeks and role it out and announce it to the school district, announce it to the campus, announce it to parents that way our Spanish-speaking community members and parents are able to feel connected to what’s going on at this school and feel like they are informed as well.” 

Junior Ignacio Miguel-Borrego, one of the students who helps translate and film the Spanish Wolfcast, said that the process can sometimes be difficult, with assignments to do for both versions of the Wolfcast. However, he said that there are aspects he enjoys in creating the show. 

“The hardest part of the Spanish Wolfcast has to be timing,” Miguel-Borrego said. “Since we’re busy with our own packages and other school work, we often struggle to get it done in time by the end of the week. My favorite part of the Spanish Wolfcast is the same as the English Wolfcast, which [is] the people involved in making the show possible.” 

While the process behind translating the script from English to Spanish can be time-consuming, junior Victor Martinez said that the Spanish Wolfcast is a great way for broadcast members to connect with each other. He said that he hopes the show will create more awareness for different cultures. 

“I hope that people realize how present the Spanish language is and the Latino culture is at Cedar Park and in Texas,” Martinez said. “I hope they can appreciate the existence of things like the Spanish Wolfcast that attempt to broaden the outreach of the stories we tell in CPHS News.” 

The Spanish Wolfcast is filmed on Thursdays and is aired on the CPHS News YouTube channel on Fridays. Junior Giselle Muniz said that she hopes the show will be able to help out students who are learning Spanish as well as people who are already fluent. 

“People should watch the Spanish Wolfcast if they are interested in learning the language,” Muniz said. “Watching it is good practice, it might help kids that want to learn Spanish and it keeps them informed on things that are happening around school and other things that can have an impact on the CPHS student body.” 

In the next few years, Garcia said that he hopes to continue the Spanish Wolfcast and incorporate more of the Cedar Park community into the show. 

“I think what we want to do in the future is to make it consistent and kind of a staple where people know that it’s out there and people know how to find it and eventually maybe the Spanish Wolfcast is doing original stories as opposed to just the same stories just in English on the regular Wolfcast,” Garcia said. “[I hope] that we are maybe able to involve other programs, talk to some of the other Spanish teachers and see if they’d like to get involved in some way with their students and maybe create a project where we can use some of their Spanish projects on the broadcast, and maybe even look at some of our middle and elementary schools that have a high Spanish speaking populations and try to incorporate some stories from those schools that way we can try to not just reach Cedar Park, but the entire community.”
