Radio Ink EVP/Publisher Deborah Parenti said, “The Medallas de Cortez awards presentation is one of the most inspiring and memorable aspects of the Hispanic Radio Conference. By recognizing excellence in Hispanic radio, these awards pay tribute not only to some amazing and dedicated professionals in Hispanic radio, but they serve to energize and encourage others to follow in their footsteps. And for me, there is nothing more rewarding than the honor of presenting these very special awards. ”
