Coming up first on the 7AM hour, Jamie Meloni welcomed Hector Bauza and Joel Freedman to the show! Hector is a Hispanic marketing veteran of 25+ years, he brings the unique combination of corporate agency and media experience. In all that time, he’s been responsible for guiding customers to successfully transcend their brand to the Hispanic market. Why marketers do not plan accordingly to reach the Hispanic Market? How can your business reach the Hispanic Community better? Questions certainly in keeping with Hispanic Heritage Month, a time where we as Americans give tribute to the many different Hispanic Americans that help shape this country each and every day. To reach out to the Hispanic market is not a “politically correct” (As some say) decision. It should be an economic decision, that will affect any bottom line – and that means the bottom line for your business as well. Get in touch with Hector at:! Joel Freedman is the President and Executive Producer of 2 Hungry Dogs Productions. Joel has over 25 years of experience in the video industry. He continues to provide broadcast quality video production for clients like CBS News, Fox News, ESPN, MSNBC and more. Joel combines the best production skills with a positive attitude to make sure you not only get a good product, but that you enjoy the production experience. He’s a long time TBBO Member, and we encourage the use of his business for all of your production needs. Check him out at:!
