Miami, FL. April 21, 2020— SBS Entertainment, the entertainment division of Spanish Broadcasting System, Inc. (“SBS”) (OTCQX: SBSAA), the leading Minority certified, Hispanic multimedia and entertainment company in the U.S., today announced “Mi Casa Es Tu Casa Live Music Series”, launching Friday, April 24.

“Mi Casa Es Tu Casa Live Music Series was designed in partnership with some of the biggest names in Latin music to entertain and encourage our listeners during this unprecedented time,” said Alessandra Alarcón, President of SBS Entertainment. “We’re making the pledge to be there for the Hispanic community every step of the way, not only by keeping them informed with the latest news and preparedness tips, but by also delivering our unparalleled live music experiences right to their favorite SBS radio stations and the LaMusica app.”
The spread of the coronavirus has disproportionately affected many Hispanics across the nation, however, this coveted community continues to tune-in to their favorite radio stations and are leaning on radio personalities for support. According to Nielsen, 83% of American adults report spending the same or more time with radio as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. 62% of Hispanics agree that radio is a good source of information and 44% agree that having access to radio (on-air or online) has helped them deal with the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.*
“We’ve seen a slight uptick in listenership across most of our SBS audio stations and digital platforms since the beginning of the pandemic which is a testament of Nielsen’s recent COVID-19 study, added Alarcón.” “This is precisely why we’re exclusively airing the ´Mi Casa Es Tu Casa Live Music Series´ across our leading audio platforms. Our goal is to reach and support as many Hispanics as possible. No matter if they are listening to us at home, in their car or at work, we want to brighten up their day with the music and artists they love.”
Mi Casa Es Tu Casa Live Music Series Dates
All concerts will take place at 7 p.m. ET/CDT/PT and will also be streamed on the LaMusica App.
