Celebrating Hispanic Radio U.S.A.:
The Fastest-Growing Latin American Audience!
The sixth Radio Ink Hispanic Radio Conference will bring together leaders in the Hispanic radio community and experts in Hispanic advertising and media for a comprehensive overview of opportunities and strategies within this rapidly transforming sector.
This conference will inspire stations, brands, advertisers, media companies, and those working in Hispanic radio and inform them about how to best take advantage of the power of Hispanic culture and consumerism across the USA today. Not only will this conference reveal strategy and tactics to increase investment by advertisers into the Hispanic radio sector, it will empower and arm those who manage, sell and program Hispanic radio and Hispanic radio platforms with the data and tools necessary to growing audience and revenues.

Whether you're working in Hispanic radio, exploring the possibilities for Spanish-language formats, or simply want to better understand a thriving, influential area of the radio industry, you won't want to miss the opportunity to hear this lively roundtable talk on the state of the business.
Attorney Frank Montero speaks with FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn at the Hispanic Radio Conference
You've heard it before, and you know it's true. But are you ready to respond? The demographics of the U.S. are changing, and media needs to change as well -- to keep up with consumer needs, and to survive and thrive while serving an audience that's more diverse than ever.
At Radio Ink's Hispanic Radio Conference, coming up March 4-5 in Dallas, you can get the uniquely valuable perspective of FCC Commissioner (and former Acting Chair) Mignon Clyburn, an outspoken advocate for minority ownership and involvement in media and in the fast-growing digital world.
In a casual and wide-ranging conversation with FCC attorney Frank Montero, Clyburn will talk about the view from DC and her own personal take on such topics as broadcast ownership, net neutrality, and minorities in the digital world. These are the topics that will affect your business and your future, and this is a rare opportunity to get a Commissioner's-eye view of the days and years ahead.

The growing number of Hispanics in the U.S. has made them an increasingly vital political constituency -- but that doesn't mean they are a single voting bloc. Hispanics, like all Americans, are a diverse group who find their interests represented in a variety of parties and political philosophies. And the desire for good jobs, education, and affordable health care are also concerns shared across the board. When the topic turns to immigration, the political lines become sharper -- but not always in the ways you might think.
