RBR+TVBR Editor-in-Chief Adam R Jacobson found himself at AutoNation Toyota Scion in Weston, FL, on Wednesday. Weston is a western Broward County community some 30 minutes to the north of Hialeah.

While “Les” in the service department was tuned to WFEZ-FM “Easy 93.1,” the market-leading Cox Media Group AC, “Johanna” — the woman who runs the dealership’s cafeteria — loves one Spanish-language radio station.
Why? What drives her listening? What about her response to this station’s advertising?
It’s all here in this under-10 minute learning lesson that could open your eyes to the power of Hispanic radio.
