Hispanic Media: Fact Sheet 2015

At 54 million in 2013, Hispanics account for 17% of the U.S. population and are responsible for half the nation’s growth between 2000 and 2012. Much of this growth since 2000 has come from the births of Hispanics in the U.S. rather than the arrival of new immigrants. As a result, English use among Hispanic adults is on the rise. Today, about six-in-ten U.S. adult Hispanics (62%) speak English or are bilingual.

One question this raises for the news media is to what degree this population turns to outlets dedicated to coverage – in both Spanish and English – presented through a Hispanic lens. Audiences for news programs on Univision, the largest Spanish-language media company in the U.S, were down in 2014 compared with 2013 both at national and local levels, as was circulation among Spanish-language daily newspapers. However, the news audience at Telemundo, the smaller Hispanic television network, grew in 2014. Newer, English-language players such as Fusion, Latin Post and the now defunct Voxxi are also emerging. It is still unclear, though, to what extent they will gain a foothold with their target audience: younger, English-speaking Hispanics.
