Esteban tells me he’s thrilled with the promotion. “We all like our efforts to be recognized,” he tells me. “Just like many of my colleagues who love this profession, I put in many hours a day, all my energy, attention and creativity. Perhaps the promotion is the fruit of my dedication.”
Esteban points out that in his three and a half year tenure as news director in Chicago, he has overseen the expansion of news programming from 5 to 9 and a half hours a week.
Before moving to Chicago, Esteban worked as a reporter and managing editor for Telemundo 47 in NYC. He was previously a reporter at El Diario la Prensa and weekend news editor for WADO radio in New York.
