Arlington, VA–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–January 30th, 2003–Jesus Sanchez-Canete was named by the Washington Business Journal as “One of 12 People To Watch in 2003”.

Sanchez-Canete is continuing to expand La Nacion USA into the voice for the explosive growth of the Hispanic community in the Washington DC metropolitan area, Richmond, VA, Baltimore, MD, Annapolis, MD and Eastern Pennsylvania. He is also busy as the new President of the area’s first ethnic media association, the United Ethnic Publisher’s Association.

“The Census Bureau said Tuesday that Hispanics have surpassed Afro-Americans as the nation’s largest minority group. We now comprise nearly 13 percent of the US population,” says Sanchez-Canete.

In response to this, La Nacion USA is looking at the infrastructure of its own organization and preparing for expansion. The newspaper is increasing in both size and circulation as more and more businesses and organizations recognize the newspaper as the choice vehicle to reach the Hispanic consumers.

La Nacion USA publishes daily, except for Sundays. The newspapers sell for 25 cents and can be found in coin-operated machines located strategically throughout the city and at Metro stations, as well as in specific retail locations.

La Nacion USA has four sections daily. The first section is devoted to local, national, international and Latin American news. The entire second section is devoted to sports. The third section’s topics changes daily; in-depth coverage of immigration, technology, education, tourism, health, arts & culture, corporate business, real estate, automobiles and other area of interest to the readers. Our Allentown, Pennsylvania special section is on Wednesday. The last section, the classifieds, is growing very rapidly.

“We care about our community and my newspaper reaches across the breadth and depth of the Hispanic community in this area. We concentrate on giving our readers the best possible information and service,” Sanchez-Canete emphasizes.
