Soros takeover: FCC clears path for liberal group to buy Spanish-language conservative talk radio stations
Fox News ^ | 11/26/2022 | Brian Flood

A liberal group linked to billionaire George Soros has been cleared by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to purchase Spanish-language radio stations throughout the country, rekindling concerns that a "radical political agenda" will influence information provided to Hispanic voters.

Miami’s iconic, Spanish-language conservative talk radio station Radio Mambi is one of the 18 stations the Soros-backed Latino Media Network will purchase from Televisa Univision for a reported $60 million. Radio Mambi, which is historically linked to the Cuban exile community and offers an anti-communism view, will be controlled by liberals once the deal is finalized.

Latino Media Network, which is partially financed by an investment group affiliated with Soros Fund Management, is controlled by Jess Morales Rocketto, a former Hillary for America and AFL-CIO employee, and former Obama White House staffer Stephanie Valencia.

The FCC rejected a petition to block the proposed sale.

"We have reviewed the applications and find that Univision is qualified to assign, and LMN is qualified to hold, the licenses for the stations," FCC Audio Division chief Albert Shuldiner said in a decision released on Monday and first reported by Inside Radio.

Spanish-language stations in other major markets, including New York, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Antonio are also set to be controlled by the Soros-linked group. Some conservatives, particularly right-leaning Hispanics, have called it an attempt by the left to control the information made available to Spanish-speaking voters.

Radio Mambi staffers have been furious for months, and some of the station’s biggest stars walked away before the FCC even paved way for the deal to happen. Conservative host Lourdes Ubieta quit in July, saying she would never accept a paycheck from anyone connected to Soros.

Similar here in Indy - Emmis communications, a mostly center right radio group just sold to a black leftist radio group.

Government interference and threats to their FCC license (and lots of IRS audits amd regulatory agencies showing up) if they didn’t sell/divest to them.

So they will lose their listeners.

No one listens to leftist radio, except gov subsidized ones like NPR.

It will be interesting to see the ratings once Georgie Porgie takes over and ruins them.

IMO, it’s up to the conservative Latino community to deal with it.

Everyone needs to stop using liberal to describe what are radical leftists/progressives or commies.

Likewise,understand the difference between a conservative/Constitutional republican and a RINO,neocons and/or GOpe.
