PEJ Study Looks At Hispanic Media, Including Radio
August 30, 2011 at 5:11 AM (PT)
A report on Hispanic media by the PEW RESEARCH CENTER's PROJECT FOR EXCELLENCE IN JOURNALISM notes the growth in Spanish-language radio in AMERICA as "in the last year, Spanish-language media tended to fare better overall than their mainstream English-language counterparts."
On radio, the report notes an 8% increase in Spanish-language stations to 1,323 but adds that only 96 of those are in News-Talk formats (up by three from the previous year). The report takes brief looks at the major players in Spanish-language radio, including UNIVISION and its move to be measured by the PPM after initial resistance, BUSTOS MEDIA and its default and reconstitution as ADELANTE MEDIA GROUP (and AMADOR BUSTOS' comeback with additional stations), ENTRAVISION and others.
