SLACKER is launching four newly revamped Latin stations -- Regional Mexican, Spanish Pop, Reggeaton/Hip-Hop and Rock/Alternativo programmed by SLACKER's new Latin music DJs, ALEX CORTEZ and JACKIE MADRIGAL. The new programmers come to SLACKER RADIO with decades of
radio and industry experience and an in-depth knowledge of the full spectrum of Latin music and Spanish-language radio. The newly updated Slacker Radio Latin stations are available for free on the web, on home entertainment devices and all leading smartphones.
"I'm not only a programmer on SLACKER, I am also a fan," said CORTEZ. "I truly love the music I program on my stations -- both Rock/Alternativo and Hip-Hop/Reggaeton. Artists write music to emotionally attach themselves to the fan, and SLACKER is the perfect extension of the artist."
"I am beyond delighted to join SLACKER, the best and most innovative online radio outlet
for all formats, including Latin," said Madrigal. "Music and radio have always been my passion, and I’m fortunate enough to have worked in the industry for over a decade. I’m very excited to bring my expertise in Latin radio and music to SLACKER, and help give the listeners of our Spanish Pop and Regional Mexican stations an awesome listening experience."
