NOTICIANDO: LATINO MEDIA MARKETS / by Maria Hinojosa | July 13, 2012

Adriana -Thanks for the comment and feacdebk. I’m glad you got my post. It’s far too easy to invest in a community that’s growing as fast the Latino has over the last two decades. I think Latinos recognize a genuine interest in developing our community and just not making inroads to hit the bottom line. I did review your presentation at the NCLR Conference good work! I hope to keep those lessons in mind everyday! Saludos!
