He’ll be based in Charlotte, N.C. He starts the new job in early December.
In his new role, he’ll be in charge of news content for three Hola Noticias weeklies, four radio stations and a soon-to-launch Estrella TV affiliate station.
“I’m looking forward to this new challenge,” Hernando tells Media Moves. “It’s a great honor to be part of a company like Norsan Media that’s growing and whose owners have great vision. They see the importance of investing in the Latino community.”
