Joe Schramm, the event’s programmer said “The annual presentation of the prestigious Hispanic Television Awards is a highlight of the Hispanic Television Summit and is just one session within the overall conference. Awards are presented to individuals, programs, or organizations in recognition of their current achievements that have driven the growth and prosperity of the overall Hispanic TV industry.” Bill Gannon, Vice President & Global Editor-in-Chief at Future added, “We are thrilled with this year’s line-up of recipients. They are all deserving of this honor.”
Award recipient Ana de la Reguera first started as a telenovela star but has become best known for her work in Netflix’s Narcos, Amazon’s Goliath and Nacho Libre, HBO’s Eastbound & Down and Capadocia to name a few leading TV series. She will join other celebrities who have previously received this award, including Cristina Saralegui, Oscar De La Hoya, Lucero, Diego Luna, María Celeste Arrarás, Rafael Amaya, Jorge Ramos, José Díaz-Balart and many more.
Estrella’s “Tengo Talento, Mucho Talento” is receiving the award in recognition of its 25th season. The program will be the third TV series to ever receive this award. On hand to accept the award will be Peter Markham, CEO, Estrella Media; Pepe Garza, Judge for “Tengo Talento”; Don Cheto, Judge and host of “Don Cheto Al Aire,” the nationally syndicated radio series; and Ivan Stoilkovich, Executive Vice President of Television Content, Estrella Media. Tom Ryan, President & CEO, Streaming, at ViacomCBS and Co-Founder & CEO at Pluto TV will accept the award on behalf of Pluto TV which is being recognized for its expanding complement of content services for Hispanic viewers. Pluto will be the first streaming platform to receive this award, which has previously gone to traditional linear providers like Spectrum, Comcast Cable, Altice USA, Dish, AT&T/DirecTV, Cox and Verizon.
The three awards to Pioneers in Hispanic TV are presented in honor of the late Rafael Eli, who passed from COVID in 2020. He was the co-producer of this event. This is the second year for these awards and, like their namesake, the awards recognize the achievements and tenacity of individuals or organizations who have continued to serve the Hispanic media, notably television, for the past 20 years or more. The award in the Media and Publicity category is presented to the Hispanic Marketing Council (HMC, formerly AHAA), which has been promoting the growth of the Hispanic media, marketing, and communications industries for 25 years. The award will be accepted by Gonzalo del Fa, President at GroupM Multicultural and current chair of the HMC board. Another Rafael Eli Award for Pioneer in Hispanic TV is presented in the Creative Agency category and recognizes the alma Agency. Their award will be accepted by Luis Miguel Messianu, alma’s Founder, Creative Chairman and CEO. The last of these awards recognizing pioneers presented in the talent category goes to the world-renowned TV host, Mario Kreutzberger, a.k.a. “Don Francisco,” who is currently serving as a presenter on CNN en Español.
