Entravision Communications Corporation owns and/or operates 53 primary television stations. A large majority of our television stations broadcast in 19 of the top 50 U.S. Hispanic markets. Our television assets consist primarily of the largest affiliate groups for the two television networks of Univision Communications Inc., Univision and UniMas.
Each of our stations has been ranked as the number one U.S. Spanish-language television station in each of the markets in which we broadcast. The U.S. Hispanic consumer base in our television markets represents approximately $217 billion in consumer spending.
We own and/or operate Univision and UniMas affiliates in 20 of our 24 television markets, creating valuable duopolies that allow us to better reach Hispanic consumers. Over half of our Univision and UniMas affiliates are strategically located in California and Texas, two states that account for approximately half of the nation’s Hispanic population. These states also contain the top 5 highest-density U.S. Hispanic markets, all being markets where we operate television duopolies. These markets are: Laredo, Texas; McAllen-Brownsville, Texas; El Paso, Texas; Yuma, Arizona-El Centro, California; and Corpus Christi, Texas.
We believe that we are one of the largest owners of media assets in five important high-density U.S. Hispanic markets that border Mexico. We own and/or operate 11 television stations in the following international metroplexes: San Diego, California/Tijuana, Mexico; Yuma, Arizona-El Centro, California/Mexicali, Mexico; El Paso, Texas/Juarez, Mexico; Laredo, Texas/Nuevo Laredo, Texas; and McAllen-Brownsville, Texas/Reynoso-Matamoros, Mexico. Approximately 8 million people of Hispanic descent live in this 5-market international border region.
