The last two decades have seen great transformations in Mexico’s media industry. The number of cable news in the country has risen from one to six, thus providing viewers with better critical investigative journalism. Although many players have entered the industry, Televisa and TV Azteca are the two main players in the television sector. Notably, the new entrants have created the need for more and better content on television, radio, newspapers, and even online. Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega is one of the professionals who have been at the center of the transition.
Mexico’s magazine market is regarded as one of the most dynamic and competitive. Brands such as Gatopardo, Chilango, and Emeequis have joined Nexos and Preceso in the market. This change has seen the growth of new media personalities such as Emeequis’ editor, Vietnika Batres. These brands have significantly increased the amount of local content, thus benefiting their clients. The magazines have also been used to educate the public on various issues ranging from health to governance.
Big Mexican media brands are also going online. Grupo Televisa and Gatopardo have online platforms where tech-savvy clients can enjoy breaking news, informational articles, blogs, and digital newspapers. In addition, the brands have YouTube channels and Instagram accounts where they share tons of news and entertainment videos.
