 “The Medallas de Cortez awards presentation is one of the most inspiring and memorable aspects of the Hispanic Radio Conference,” says Deborah Parenti, Publisher of Radio + Television Business Report, Radio Ink and the Podcast Business Journal. “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 their footsteps. And for me, there is nothing more rewarding than the honor of presenting these very special awards.”

The awards are named in honor of Raoul Cortez, who founded KCOR-AM in San Antonio — 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.
