To engage Latinos well, campaigns and organizations must first understand where Latinos consume news and information. Media consumption data can help practitioners answer important questions to shape their voter contact programs.This month, Equis is releasing the latest on Latino news consumption, which we’re giving you early access to here.  The report helps answer several important questions like:

  • What do Latino audiences watch/consume?
  • Where should we be targeting our messages?
  • How do we reach “hard-to-reach” subgroups?
  • What sites or placements should we include in my digital media plan?
  • Should we be investing in Spanish radio?
  • What platforms should we be investing in for organic digital content?
  • Is it better to spend more on fewer platforms or to be on as many platforms as possible?
  • Which audiences are we missing with our current approach/tactics?
  • What kind of Latinos consume TV news vs. digital news?
  • Who do we miss if we run a basic digital program (YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram only)?
  • Where are Spanish dominants consuming news outside of Spanish-language TV and radio?

For this project, our team combined data from 19 Equis State Series surveys (a mix of live-dial, text-to-web, and online panel interviews) and one online panel test from late 2021 and 2022 to look at overall news consumption trends for registered Latino voters across the country. In cases where we identified respondents who took part in multiple surveys, we only kept one response, prioritizing the instance with the most complete answers. The total number of Latino respondents included in this report is 16,187.

Equis’ Latino Playbook: Main Character Energy

March 15, 2024
At Equis we are frequently asked how Latino audiences respond to an increasing variety of media and cultural content — outside of news — and whether the shows people watch or music they listen to might reveal important insights for better capturing Latino attention. Equis Institute, in collaboration with Harmony Labs, has created a segmentation that gives ad makers, creators, and storytellers the power to understand the diverse demography and behaviors of Latinos in the US as well as the characters, values, and stories to which different clusters of Latinos gravitate.
