Spanish-language radio stations have spent 2002 the way most other media outlets have – recovering from the weak economy and the events of September 2001. But there are indications that the market is poised to regain its luster.
Each year, Hispanic Business compiles a list of the top radio station clusters in key markets (see chart below). A separate list this year identifies the top 10 individual Spanish-language radio stations by revenue (see chart at bottom). Both lists show that Spanish Broadcasting System (SBS) and Hispanic Broadcasting Corp. (HBC) continue to dominate the major markets.
