Radio, TV Marti to be aired locally in South Florida

The Miami Herald says that US audiences will be able to get news from TV and Radio Martí via two South Florida stations, despite a law that generally prohibits distribution in the United States. The newspaper says TV and Radio Martí are spending $377,500 to air select programmes on South Florida broadcast stations over the next six months, using loopholes in a law that prohibits the propaganda channels [sic] from distribution within the United States.
The stations - Univisión’s Radio Mambí 710 AM and WPMF-TV 38, the Azteca América affiliate owned by TVC Broadcasting - technically can reach Cuba.
