Expat, Karin Ledl, co-hosts Montevideo Night, a new TV show airing every Friday on Uruguay's Canal U

Expat, Karin Ledl, is the co-host of Montevideo Night airing at 11:30 pm each Friday on Canal U
For a long time, Karin Ledl divided her time between Argentina and the USA. Then about five years ago, she settled down—in Uruguay.

Karin, an attorney and mediator, is also a writer. In Uruguay, she blogged about her travels (Karin has explored every continent except Africa). She also wrote lifestyle articles for the Paradise Uruguay Blog.

After that, Karin went on to write a relationship-advice column, Rincón Sentimental in Spanish. She’s also written a soon-to-be-published book, How to Mend a Broken Heart, (also in Spanish).

Her advice column led to a guest spot on the radio show, Montevideo Night (1010 AM and online). Popular with listeners, Karin started making regular show appearances with Montevideo radio personality, Ruben Vasquez.

The successful radio program now has a spin-off TV show by the same name, Montevideo Night, which Karin co-hosts with Vasquez.

On the show, Karin and Ruben go on location in Montevideo, Punta del Este, and other parts of Uruguay to report on entertainment, social events, tourism, food, and fashion.

Montevideo Night airs Fridays at 11:30 pm on Uruguay's Canal U, with repeats Sunday at 10:00 pm and Tuesday at 5:30 pm. If you don’t have cable, you can watch the show on Canal U online.



Besides Uruguay, Canal U is available to view in Paraguay, Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Perú, and New York.




In addition to her practice and writing, Karin enjoys socializing. During her early years in Uruguay, she was a regular at the expat gatherings in Montevideo, Piriapolis, and Punta del Este.

"There are strong expat communities in Montevideo and the Punta del Este area, which are very welcoming and give newcomers the opportunity make new friends and be socially active," says Karin.
