LOS ANGELES, CA – Yesterday, August 22, 2019, the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) was privileged to award four extraordinary honorees for advancing and elevating the local Latino community at its 17th annual Los Angeles Impact Awards Luncheon at the Hilton Universal City Hotel.
Azalea Iñiguez: “It is a great honor to be recognized by NHMC, an organization that I respect for the work they do helping to eliminate barriers for the Latino community. I consider myself very fortunate to have the opportunity to tell the stories of our community through my reporting, and empower them with information that helps them fight for their rights, for justice and for respect, in these times when fear and uncertainty leaves our community vulnerable to being taken advantage of. I am truly humbled by this award, and grateful for the opportunity that Telemundo 52 has given me for more than two decades to work side-by-side with an amazing team of professionals, who take this mission to heart.” Marco Flores: “I am honored and privileged to receive the Impact Award from The National Hispanic Media Coalition, an organization I respect and admire. As an immigrant and a media executive in my role at Univision, I strongly believe we must empower our audiences with tools to improve their way of life, to partake in civic engagement, and to amplify their voices and needs. I am fortunate to lead a great team of journalists who seek social justice, equality and the advancement of our community in every story they tell, while celebrating our audience’s successes and contributions. The NHMC Impact Award encourages me to continue serving and empowering my community through my work.”
