Mi Casa Broadcasting

“I don’t know if there’s room for another Spanish-language network, but I think there’s room for another network,” he said. “The English-language Latino is underserved. They’re consuming their media in English.

“SALUD” VERSUS “HEALTH”: DOES MARKETING TO HISPANICS MAKE AN IMPACT?

THE HISPANIC BLOG BY JESSICA MARIE GUTIERREZ
20120226-191427.jpg

Univision’s Patient Journey research also revealed an equal percentage of Hispanics and non-Hispanics reported being prescribed treatment. However, focus group participants expressed an internal tug of war when it comes to adhering to treatment – they understood that medication can help cure or manage their ailments, but also possess concerns which can often be traced back to lack of information. This results in overly inflated fears and/or expectations of treatment.

This finding brings to light the opportunity healthcare marketers have to connect with Hispanics in their language and culture – targeted communications that portray personable doctors or family situations can build trust within the Hispanic community. And they can dramatically lead to adherence of medications.

In addition to Univision’s Patient Journey findings, at the Forum Google presented numbers that showcase Hispanics’ thirst for Spanish-language health content. Overall, Spanish-language online health queries grew an average of 588% per sub-category from 2006-2011. Google compared Spanish-language and English-language search terms including “salud” (+272%) vs. “health” (+29%) and saw a higher growth rate in Spanish-language terms over the same time period.

If healthcare marketers use these findings to better understand Hispanic patients and to develop campaigns to truly engage them, the industry could capitalize on a $12 billion growth opportunity. To read more on the Patient Journey study, read Medical Marketing & Media’s coverage here.

DOES UNIVISION HAVE THE HIGHEST CONCENTRATION OF VIEWERS: CEO RANDY FALCO PUTS IN HIS TWO CENTS

THE HISPANIC BLOG BY JESSICA MARIE GUTIERREZ

Spanish-language media giant Univision Communications on Friday reported improved fourth-quarter financials and vowed that it will continue to grow despite increased competition.

The privately-held company, led by CEO Randy Falco and chairman Haim Saban, posted a loss of $355.9 million, compared with a loss of $631.9 million in the year-ago period, which had been  dragged down by $452 million in losses and charges related to a legal settlement with Mexican broadcaster, content supplier and investor Grupo Televisa. Restructuring, severance and related charges rose to $9.3 million in the latest period from $4.9 million in the year-ago period. The company also cited an impairment loss of $12.5 million, compared to $8.6 million in the year-ago period.

Adjusted operating income before depreciation and amortization, a measure of profitability that focuses more on operations, increased 6.3 percent to $275.7 million. Revenue in the latest quarter rose 6.9 percent to $616.7 million. The company recorded revenue gains in its television and radio business, but not its interactive unit.

“The release of the 2010 U.S. Census results made 2011 a landmark year for Univision and the entire Hispanic media industry,” said Falco. “The Census results showed that our core audience, which is already one in six Americans, is expected to grow to one in three Americans in 40 years.”

To take advantage of the upside opportunity, “Univision is laying the groundwork for growth, investing in new networks and expanding our digital distribution capabilities to deliver the full value of our exclusive programming partnership with Televisa,” he added. “These efforts are enhancing Univision’s audience engagement, as demonstrated by strong ratings and persistent live viewership – Univision finished the fourth quarter with the highest percentage of live viewers in primetime compared to the major broadcast networks.”

On a conference call, Univision executives explained the significance of having the highest concentration of live viewers in the key 18-49 demo in primetime. Of Univision’s audience in that demo, 94 percent watch live, compared with 79 percent at NBC, 76 percent at  ABC and 75 percent at CBS and Fox, the company said.

Spanish-language media has been in transition as the latest Census has cast a spotlight on the sector, and other media and entertainment companies are eyeing opportunities to take advantage, Falco told analysts. “Now, every media executive wakes up thinking of two great growth opportunities – Hispanic and digital media,” he said.

However, Univision has an advantage as it has focused on this space for more than half a century, “and we are far and away the best at it,” Falco said. “We have built up a rare trust and loyalty with our audience.”

But the company won’t rest on its laurels, he emphasized, saying “it pays to be ahead of the curve.” Importantly, Falco said that “we also have the relevant content U.S. Hispanics crave,”  calling Univision’s exclusive access to Televisa content “a huge competitive advantage.”

Asked about rep0rts that Univision has discussed an English-language joint venture with ABC News, executives declined to comment on Friday.

Management touted the outlook for the political advertising season though, saying Univision is spending millions to launch its political sales force.
