Candidates are now being accepted for the 2017 Medallas de Cortez awards, in eight categories. They will be presented at the Hispanic Radio Conference, March 28-29 in Fort Lauderdale at the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty Six.
The Medallas de Cortez awards are the most prestigious and highly coveted in Hispanic radio. This is the eighth year these exclusive radio awards have been presented. If you know someone who is doing great work in Hispanic radio, don’t miss the chance to spotlight their efforts with a nomination.
Radio Ink and Radio + Television Business Report 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.
