LBI Media, Inc., the largest minority-owned Spanish broadcaster, and parent company of Estrella TV Network and Don Cheto Radio Network, recently secured the participation of Hillary Clinton’s VP pick, Tim Kaine, for a national broadcast interview, which took place on the popular morning Don Cheto Radio Show.
In an unprecedented Spanish language radio interview in this 2016 presidential election cycle, Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential running mate, participated in a nine-minute telephone interview, completely in Spanish, discussing pressing issues affecting the Latino community in the U.S. During the interview, Don Cheto challenged Kaine to answer tough questions about immigration reform and economic development.
Don Cheto, a widely popular Mexican American radio and TV personality, headlining LBI Media, Inc.’s top rated Don Cheto Radio Network, is one of the leading and highest rated Spanish morning radio shows in the U.S. When asked why the Latino community should vote for the democratic ticket, Kaine emphasized three distinct characteristics that his running mate, Hillary Clinton, had in common with the Latino community: Her core values, which are in line with Latinos everywhere, faith, family and work. He also stated that Clinton was committed to push immigration reform in her first days in office.
The historic radio interview concluded with Kaine reminding Don Cheto and his listeners that Latinos can make a difference in this election and that undoubtedly, this important community can be a deciding factor in choosing the next president of the United States. To listen to recorded interview
