Senator Javier D. Souto to dedicate “Eucario Bermudez Way”
MIAMI, FL – A respected Colombian American radio personality will have a Miami-Dade County street named after him in honor of his many contributions to the community.
County Commissioner Sen. Javier D. Souto will join Commission Chairwoman Rebeca Sosa next week in a ceremony to co-designate Southwest 110th Avenue between 32nd and 40th streets as Eucario Bermudez Way. The dedication ceremony will take place on Thursday, May 1 at 1:30 p.m. at the southwest corner of 110th Avenue and 40th Street.
Commissioner Souto sponsored the April 8 County Commission resolution to rename the street.
Mr. Bermudez, who attended the Commission meeting to accept the honor, began working for 1260 AM Radio Caracol when the station launched in 1994. During his more than 25 years at the station, he emerged as one of Miami’s most respected journalists, winning many awards including the prestigious Premios Onda Award from Spain.
Mr. Bermudez founded the Association of Colombian News Outlets and Journalists in the United States, the Colombian American Association, and the Colombian Political Action Committee (COLPAC). He also served as President of the Columbian American Chamber of Commerce.
“Eucario Bermudez has been a voice of clarity and truth in this community for many years, and he richly deserves this honor,” Commissioner Souto said.
