"As we discuss throughout Hispanic Market Overview 2013, Spanish-language media is alive and well, and growing," says Jacobson, who served as a multicultural analyst with global market research firm for much of 2012 and is the principal analyst for Arbitron's Hispanic Radio Today 2010 and Hispanic Radio Today 2011. "Digital platforms are bringing culturally relevant content—and marketing messages—to a growing group of consumers that use Spanish, or English, or both. Pending immigration reform will increase the need for relevant Hispanic media. An improved economy could bring another wave of immigrants from Latin America to the U.S. Hispanic advertising professionals already know this. The question is this: Are multicultural marketers willing to listen and learn?"
