Radio Ink Publisher Deborah Parenti says, “The Medallas de Cortez awards presentation is always a highlight of the Hispanic Radio Conference. The opportunity to honor excellence in Hispanic radio serves as an inspiration to all who attend. It also casts a well-deserved spotlight on the dedicated professionalism found throughout Hispanic radio.”
The awards are named in honor of Raoul Cortez, who founded KCOR — the first Spanish-language station in the United States — in 1946. Nominations are open to anyone, Hispanic and not, who is involved in Hispanic broadcasting. The goal is to make sure everyone dedicated to this segment of the industry has an opportunity to be recognized for their contributions to excellence in radio.
Nominations are being accepted in eight categories: Marketer, National/Syndicated Personality, Local Personality, Program Director, Sales Manager, General/Market Manager, Station of the Year, and Broadcaster of the Year.
