Eduardo Caballero, a pioneer in the US Hispanic media industry, was recognized for his achievement in building a successful minority owned and operated business. For over 40 years Eduardo Caballero has been leaving his footprints in both the Radio and TV industry.
After becoming the nation’s fist Hispanic General Sales Manager of a US radio station, in 1968 Caballero helped to create Spanish International Network –SIN- (currently Univision) as EVP in charge of national sales. In 1973 he founded The Caballero Radio Network and Caballero Spanish Media, the nation’s first and largest Spanish radio and TV rep firm.
Building upon his experience in broadcasting, in 1998 Caballero launched the nation's first Spanish music video television network, MásMúsica TeVe (MMTV).
