When she came to the U.S. to she didn’t speak any English, but that did not stop her from graduating with a degree in marketing. With diploma in hand, she was determined to develop television programming for North Carolina’s Latino community, which she felt was much needed. 

According to Luisa, after hearing “no” a thousand times, she finally got a “yes” from the local ABC affiliate in Charlotte, N.C., who put her in a 5:30 a.m. time slot. She said, “I’ll take it.” 
The program was so successful it began to air three times a week and was picked up by stations throughout North and South Carolina, as well as Virginia. Nicknamed the “Latina Oprah” by viewers and fans, hers was the only Spanish-language show broadcast by a major television network station. 

Luisa handled sales and marketing along with producing and hosting the program. Like her idol Oprah, she owned her own show and used it as a platform to inform and uplift the Latino community. In addition, through her “Luisa Su Voz Latina” Foundation, she became a philanthropist. 

“I am so proud of everything my foundation did to give real support to disadvantaged Latina girls ages 15 to 18 in North Carolina,” Luisa said. 

“I was honored to be a role model for young Latina women in North Carolina and want to do the same for young women nationally through “Luisa Show,” she said.

To get the party started, Luisa opens every show dancing to upbeat, pulsating, pumping music that’s sure to get the crowd to its feet. 

“There is something missing in talk television and ‘Luisa Show’ helps fill that void,” said the show’s host. 

According to Evans, “It’s the most fun you can have in a talk show – day or night. And because Luisa is as talented behind the scenes as she is on camera, our collaboration as executive producers works extremely well.”
