<ul><li><p>More than 25.1 million households representing 66 million consumers receive television over-the-air through broadcast signals. Nearly 4 million of the households receiving television through an antenna are Hispanic homes, representing 12.2 million Hispanics using over-the-air signals.1 In fact, 26.3 percent of Hispanics use an antenna to receive their programming. This increases to 42.3 percent among homes where Spanish is the language of choice.</p><p>Broadcast Television</p><p>So how are Hispanics receiving news, weather, sports, entertainment, faith-based and Spanish-language programming? For the most part, Hispanics continue to rely disproportionately on the free and local TV and radio that local broadcasters provide. Reliance by Hispanics on over-the-air TV and radio, multicast and Spanish-language programming is significant across the American landscape, and broadcasting continues to provide a vital and irreplaceable resource to Hispanic communities.</p><p>Local Television Market Estimates: Hispanic or Latino TV Homes 2</p><p>Rank Designated Market Area(DMA)Hispanic TV </p><p>Homes% of US Hispanic</p><p>TV Homes</p><p>1 Los Angeles 1,924,270 13.1</p><p>2 New York 1,437,900 9.8</p><p>3 Miami-Ft.

For example, in Harlingen over 95 percent, in El Paso nearly 89 percent and in Fresno 66 percent of broadcast-only TV homes are Hispanic. </p></li><li><p>Latino and Spanish Language Broadcast Television AffiliatesBroadcast TV provides a number of Spanish-language viewing options for the Hispanic community. Several markets offer multiple viewing options including Univision, Telemundo, UniMs (formally TeleFutura), MundoMax, Estrella, Mega TV, Azteca Amrica and LATV. </p><p>The following are examples of the prevalence of Hispanic focused television in several major markets.</p><p>Hispanic Rank DMA</p><p>Hispanic Full-Power Television Channels6</p><p>Hispanic Multicast Channels7</p><p>1 Los Angeles 7 17</p><p>2 New York 3 12</p><p>3 Miami-Ft.

The following are examples of viewership on Spanish-language networks in high density Hispanic markets. </p></li><li><p>Univision is now one of the top five networks in the U.S. regardless of language, reaching 49 million consumers monthly across all of its platforms.8 Univisions sister network UniMs (formerly Telefutura) provides entertainment programming, sports and news for Hispanics through its 38 affiliates.9 Telemundo Network reaches viewers in 46 markets including all of the top 10 Hispanic markets.10 MundoMax (previously MundoFox), reaches 19 television markets across the country.11 In 2009, Estrella TV launched broadcasting a combination of game, talk, news, talent, comedy and music shows reaching 80 percent of Hispanic TV homes in the U.S.12 Azteca America is viewed by 21 million people across the U.S.13</p><p>Spanish-language networks continue to experience rapid viewership growth. During the July 2015 sweeps, UniMs saw year over year double-digit audience growth in primetime among adults aged 18-49 years.14 In April 2015, Azteca America reached nearly five million total viewers and was viewed on 65 stations.15 Local Spanish-language stations are also witnessing substantial audience expansion. In September 2015, the two-hour premiere of La Banda on Univision recorded 4.2 million total viewers, outperforming ABC, CBS and FOX stations for total viewers in Los Angeles, New York, Miami and Houston.16 </p><p>Spanish-language news continues to expand in several markets across the country. Recognizing the importance of the Hispanic community having access to local news, Telemundo began airing a six and 11 p.m. local newscast at WNEU-TV in Boston.17 In Fresno, Telemundo followed up on this new initiative by launching a one-hour, live weekday news telecast from 5:30 - 6:30 a.m.18 Univisions national news program, Noticiero Univision, has been serving the Hispanic community for over 25 years and is the only Spanish-language newscast to receive the Edward R. Murrow Award.19 Noticiero Univision employs many high profile Hispanic journalists, including nationally renowned anchor Jorge Ramos, who is often referred to as the Walter Cronkite of Latino America.20</p><p>Spanish-language broadcast networks are providing Hispanics more viewing options for sports programming. The 2015 Major League Soccer (MLS) season opening match aired on UniMs. This marked the first time ever that an MLS season opening match was broadcast exclusively on Spanish-language television.21 In August 2015, Azteca America ranked highest among all Spanish-language stations among the key 18-49 year old demographic during its broadcast of the Mexican soccer league, LIGA MX, games.22 </p><p>Hispanics Role in Broadcast Television</p><p>Hispanic-Americans enjoy an increasingly prominent role in broadcast television. Latino actors can be found in leading roles on some of the most popular and award winning broadcast programs, including Modern Family,23 Greys Anatomy24 and NCIS.25 Today broadcast television features some of the most iconic Hispanic stars, including most notably, Jennifer Lopez on her new hit show Shades of Blue. Hispanic actors can be found playing a diverse range of roles. This is can be seen in Sara Ramirezs portrayal of orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Callie Torres; Cote de Pablos playing of the former Mossad agent, Ziva David; and Esai Morales role as Behavioral Unit Section Chief Mateo Cruz.26 </p><p>Numerous Hispanic-American actors have been recognized for their stand-out performances on broadcast television programs. Jimmy Smits was awarded a Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild Award and Emmy for his work on NYPD Blue and LA Law.27 America Ferreira has won two Imagen Awards, an Emmy, a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Golden Globe Award for her performance on Ugly Betty, which was based on the hit Columbian telenovela Yo Soy Betty, La Fea.28 Most recently, Gina Rodriguez won the 2015 Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a TV Series for her role as Jane Villanueva in Jane the Virgin.29</p><p>Hispanic-Americans can also be found working behind the camera. George Lopez not only starred in his autobiographical hit show George Lopez, but was a co-creator, writer, director and producer as well.30 Eva Longoria, star of ABCs hit show Desperate Housewives, is producing a new comedy on NBC with an all-Latino cast, called Hot and Bothered.31 This year, Mexican-American comedian, Cristela Alonzo, launched the sitcom Cristela, which she created, produced, wrote and starred in.32</p></li><li><p>Hispanic and Spanish Language Programming on Digital Multicasting Affiliates</p><p>In addition to broadcasting on primary channels throughout the U.S., Hispanic-focused television provides a variety of culturally relevant and Spanish-language programming on 382 Spanish-language multicast networks.33 The number of Spanish-language multicast channels continues to rise and experienced a 35 percent increase in the last year. Below are examples of Spanish-language multicast channels. </p><p>Hispanic-American Broadcast Television and Radio Station OwnershipHispanics continue to be important stakeholders in broadcast station ownership. According to the FCCs Report on Ownership of Commercial Broadcast Stations, 42 full-power and 126 low-power broadcast television stations have a Hispanic or Latino majority owner(s).35 The report also states that 322 full-power television stations, or 26 percent of these stations, and 296 low-power stations, or 24 percent of these stations, have at least partial Hispanic or Latino ownership.36 </p><p>In terms of radio station ownership, Hispanics have majority ownership of 374 AM/FM stations. They also have a partial stake in 799 AM/FM stations.37</p><p>Broadcast Radio Adoption by Hispanics</p><p>Regardless of age, time of day or location, radio is a true companion for Hispanics with AM and FM radio, reaching over 40 million Hispanics each week, or 93 percent of all Hispanics in the U.S.38 Hispanics spend more than 12.5 hours each week listening to radio at home, in the car and on the go.39 </p><p>Broadcast radio provides a number of Spanish-language listening options for Hispanic communities across the U.S. There are over 1,100 commercial and non-commercial AM/FM radio stations playing Spanish-language or Latino focused programming.40 Univision radio operates in 9 of the top 10 markets, 16 markets overall, through 68 stations.41 Entravision Communications Corp., another broadcaster providing Spanish-language listening options, operates 48 AM/FM stations, reaching nearly 19 million U.S. Hispanics through its over-the-air broadcasts.42</p><p>Spanish-Language Multicast Channels34</p><p>V-Me 57 Azteca America 21 Tele-Romantica 8</p><p>Telemundo 48 3ABN Radio Latino 21 AlmaVision 7</p><p>LATV 44 UniMs 20 Immigrante TV 4</p><p>3ABN Latino 33 TeleXitos 16 Familia TV 4</p><p>MundoMax 30 Univision 10 Amrica TeV 3</p><p>Estrella TV 29 Spanish Independent 9 AVIVA TV 3</p></li><li><p>Hispanics are heavily engaged with Spanish-language radio, as Univision radio reaches 15.2 million listeners each week.43 The following are examples of the time Latinos in major markets spend with Spanish-language and English-language radio each week.44</p><p>MarketRank Market</p><p>Time Spent with Spanish-language Radio</p><p>(hrs:mins)</p><p>Time Spent with English-language Radio</p><p>(hrs:mins)</p><p>1 Los Angeles 7:30 7:00</p><p>2 New York 5:30 5:15</p><p>3 Miami 7:00 5:45</p><p>4 Houston 9:15 6:15</p><p>Broadcast Radio on Mobile Phones </p><p>In the summer of 2015, the two major U.S. wireless carriers, T-Mobile and AT&amp;T, joined Sprint by announcing that they too would be enabling FM digital chips in their cellular phones, meaning that local FM radio will now be available on some smartphones.45 This expands Hispanic consumers ability to conveniently access free radio service. It also provides the Latino community important public safety information during weather related or other emergencies.</p><p>Local Television and Radio Economic Impact </p><p>Local TV and radio broadcasting not only provides Hispanic communities with local news, sports, weather and emergency information, but remains a valuable source of employment that impacts local economies. Local broadcasting generates billions of dollars in annual gross domestic product (GDP) and thousands of jobs in states with large Hispanic populations. The table below shows states with Hispanic population of one million or more.46</p><p>Local TV and Radio Economic Impact by State</p><p>State Hispanic47Population</p><p>(millions)</p><p>Hispanic Population </p><p>Share</p><p>Total Economic48 Impact(billions)</p><p>Number of Jobs49</p><p>(thousands)</p><p>California 14.4 38% $156.2 316.9</p><p>Texas 9.8 38% $108.1 230.1</p><p>Florida 4.4 23% $81.5 177.8</p><p>New York 3.5 18% $80.8 159.5</p><p>Illinois 2.1 16% $56.2 117.0</p><p>Arizona 1.9 30% $26.7 57.6</p><p>New Jersey 1.6 18% $33.2 66.1</p><p>Colorado 1.1 21% $22.7 48.8</p><p>New Mexico 1.0 47% $7.4 16.3</p></li><li><p> 1.
