Estrella Media, Inc. announced today that its radio group launched the music video “Cuídate” (Take Care of Yourself), as part of its #SiSePuede (Yes We Can) community empowerment campaign for COVID-19 prevention.

A new Ipsos poll, conducted on behalf of The Daily Beast, examines whether Americans are able to sort through recent false claims made about COVID-19 (three-quarters correctly identify that “anyone who wants a test can get a test” is untrue), while examining attitudes around the virus and its impact on the economy. Though most Americans disagree that it is time to end social distancing to get our economy back on track, there is a wide gulf between Democrats and Republicans on this.

The rebranding will differentiate the innovative wire service from its former sister company, Hispanicize Media Group, the national media, music and marketing event company now owned by a different company.

“For some organizations, near-term survival is the only agenda item. Others are peering through the fog of uncertainty, thinking about how to position themselves once the crisis has passed and things return to normal. The question is, ‘What will normal look like?’ While no one can say how long the crisis will last, what we find on the other side will not look like the normal of recent years.”

As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to disrupt industries and businesses around the world, the consumer packaged goods (CPG) industry is operating in uncharted territory. Amid widespread health concerns, federal travel restrictions and local movement limitations, the industry is facing the greatest, and fastest change in shopping behavior ever.

The ANA announced it has formed a new working community of top CMOs dedicated to helping the marketing community manage the ongoing global crisis posed by the coronavirus pandemic.

As more Americans opt to stay home amid growing concerns about the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), media consumption is, unsurprisingly, peaking. Yet amid the various media options consumers have to choose from, including streaming platforms and connected TVs, a recent Nielsen survey found that 83% of consumers say they’re listening to as much or more radio as they were before the pandemic.

As the number of global coronavirus cases increases and stricter social distancing and lockdown regulations are put into place, brands continue to ask whether they should continue to advertise. Previously, we said that for most brands, spending behind the right creative will put the brand in a stronger position post-crisis than brands that don’t spend. New research adds the voice of the people: they don’t expect brands to stop advertising and are responding to ads in a very similar way to before the crisis.  by Daren Poole- Global Head of Creative / Kantar

More than one-third of Americans age 12 and over (104 Million) are consuming podcasts regularly, up significantly from 2019, according to The Infinite Dial 2020® from Edison Research and Triton Digital.

In the earliest days of HIV/AIDS, before the public was responding to the growing plague, two of my closest business colleagues died. One was an incredibly talented chief creative officer of a major fashion chain and the other a network TV buyer at a large agency. It wasn't until friends began getting visibly sick and dying that the immensity of the human tragedy resonated for many. For those in the gay community, AIDS was a pandemic. For me, like too many others, reality dawned slowly.  By Jack Myers - Media Ecologist, Founder: MediaVillage and Advancing Diversity Hall of Honors

Updates and news on the coronavirus, or COVID-19, are changing rapidly. Companies and brands are communicating with consumers about how business is being impacted, how it affects consumers, and what they’re doing to keep everyone healthy. Using Suzy, a real-time market research platform, 4A’s Research surveyed 1000 consumers on March 18, 2020 to understand how consumers feel about brand communication during the pandemic and learn how COVID-19 is changing people’s daily routines.

Just-released research from GfK shows that the novel Coronavirus (also known as COVID-19) will have significant short- and long-term effects on brand affinity and consumer purchases in the US.

Hispanics are more concerned than Americans overall about the threat the COVID-19 outbreak poses to the health of the U.S. population, their own financial situation and the day-to-day life of their local community, according to a new survey fielded as part of Pew Research Center’s Election News Pathways project.

The El Sol creative festival has been postponed until October 21-22 in Madrid.

Hispanics are on track to becoming the largest ethnic minority group in the U.S. this year. Not only does this have serious implications for the presidential election, but also for brands seeking new markets to combat stagnating sales. But it’s not just Hispanics. Population growth among African American and Asian American consumers continues to rise, as the population of Non-Hispanic Whites flatline.
