    Entravision is the cheapest company you can work for… These beancounters only care about the botton line. Why do they pay less, have older equipment,hire fewer people etc. etc. than their English speaking counterparts in the same market. All this despite having a loyal “captive” audience and the highest ratings in town! Why spend money when your viewers can’t tell the difference?? Really?? This bean counter will end up selling used cars someday…
