Latinos comprise over 16% of the U.S., but only own a handful of TV and radio stations. NHMC will advocate for policies and opportunities to diversify broadcast and other media platforms, in terms of ownership, leadership and employment. It will seek greater transparency from media companies on their diversity figures. It will monitor and report on diversity efforts at ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox and Comcast pursuant to Memoranda of Understanding it has with those entities. Finally, NHMC will celebrate passage of the Local Community Radio Act by educating individuals and organizations about how to apply for their own low power radio stations so that they may bring more diverse voices to their local airwaves.
