Cue up another radio broadcasting company that has opted to install a nationally distributed radio program across its local FM music stations. Univision Communications, now with majority ownership held by Searchlight and ForgeLight under new CEO Wade Davis, is bringing a new national audience offering — and sales solution — to its radio division, overseen by Jesus Lara. It is doing so…
Eddie ‘Piolin’ Sotelo, who shot to fame at Univision Radio’s KSCA-FM 101.9 in Los Angeles before abruptly exiting the top-rated regional Mexican station amid sexual harassment allegations in July 2013, will now have his El Show de Piolin heard on two American General Media (AGM) stations: “Radio Lobo” KLVO-FM 97.7/KKIM-FM 94.7, serving the Albuquerque-Santa Fe DMA; and KEBT-FM “96.9 La Caliente” in Bakersfield, Calif.
Renan Almendarez Coello, best known to radio listeners across the U.S. and Northern Mexico as El Cucuy de la Mañana, has signed a syndication deal with Miami-based GLR Networks, owned by Spanish media giant Grupo Prisa. The talk-intensive program, hosted by “The Bogeyman,” is being offered to Regional Mexican stations or stations in markets with a large population of immigrants of Mexican heritage.
Univision Radio has suddenly pulled the plug on the syndicated Piolin por la Mañana morning show, based at KSCA-FM in Los Angeles.
The Radio Ink Hispanic Radio Conference – March 21-22 in San Diego – is the ONLY conference devoted to Hispanic radio in America. Comprehensive coverage from Adam R Jacobson available here.
Arbitron has released the 2011 edition of its Hispanic Radio Today report, offering an in-depth review of listening to Spanish-language and English-language radio stations by Latinos across the 50 states. Adam R Jacobson served as the Principal Analyst for this report; he has worked with Arbitron on Hispanic Radio Today since 2010.
The greater the likelihood of a perceived benefit to the community, the greater the chance a Latino will participate in an Arbitron survey. That’s one of the key findings from Roslow Research Group president Peter Roslow, who worked with the radio ratings company to best explore how Arbitron can increase Latino diarykeeper participation in emerging Hispanic markets.
More than ever Latinos across the U.S. can access audio programming via an ever-widening array of delivery vehicles. Yet as Arbitron points out in its recently released 2010 edition of Hispanic Radio Today, “radio’s reach among both English-dominant and Spanish-dominant listeners continues to land between 94 percent and 96 percent — a constant since Hispanic Radio Today’s first study back in the 1990s.”
