What Happens In DC Doesn’t Stay In DC

By April 28, 2022Updates

What key issues facing Capitol Hill and the FCC should be of the greatest concern and interest to Hispanic broadcasters? Find out on Day 2 (June 23) of the Hispanic Radio Conference at the Intercontinental in Miami.

After joining us for our incredible Keynote Interview with Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), you won’t want to miss our DC Update session beginning at 9:40 am.

Moderator Frank Montero will open the discussion and states, “The past year has been quite a ride in Washington for broadcasters … a new FCC Chairwoman, another controversial appointee held up in confirmation, a new NAB CEO, pandemic restrictions slowly lifting while Congress considers legislation for a new minority tax certificate legislation, federal marijuana decriminalization, and midterm elections. Meanwhile the FCC has been ramping up enforcement on a variety of fronts including EEO audits, foreign programming, political consent decrees, FCC license renewals, and public file compliance. And has anyone heard a peep on radio multiple ownership relaxation lately? Now more than ever broadcasters need to know what is going on, and for that we have an outstanding panel of experts to discuss the latest from Washington and industry, and how it will all impact Hispanic broadcasters across the country.”

These and other pressing matters will be some of the hot topics when our legal minds convene onstage; featuring panelists Tomás Martinez, CEO, Solmart Media; Jay Meyers, President/CEO, Broadcast Management & Technology; and Christopher Wood, SVP/Associate General Counsel, TelevisaUnivision.
