Entravision COO Jeff Liberman has been in radio for almost his entire adult life. There's no question he's an expert on radio and especially on the topic of the Hispanic consumer. In 2012 Liberman advanced from President of the Radio Division at Entravision to COO of the company. The story of how his family entered the radio business is fascinating. Liberman calls himself a “radio brat” and while working for his family he learned how to do every job that needed to be done at a station, from answering the phones to filling out affidavits to selling time. Liberman sharpened all the many tools of the radio trade that put him on the path to becoming one of the 40 Most Powerful People in Radio. Today, Entravision operates one of the nation's largest groups of Spanish-language radio stations. Liberman, tells Radio Ink even with the growth of media targeting the exploding Hispanic population in the United States, that audience is still underserved. Courtesy of RadioINK.

Today, the state of the economy is shaping Hispanic young adults' lives more than anything else. Just as they were entering or approaching adulthood, the global economy went sour, forcing them to behave differently than people of earlier generations as they started their adult lives. College was supposed to lead to dream jobs - but for many, work of any kind can be hard to come by. As we noted in last week's blog, young Latinos have had it particularly hard: Hispanics 18 to 34 are 25% more likely to be unemployed than non-Hispanic whites, and one in seven Hispanics 18 to 24 is looking for a job but can't find one.
