Hispanic chamber partners with Univision on program for small business community

The Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey has partnered with Univision New York to launch a half-hour weekly program covering the Hispanic small business community in the tri-state area, the two announced recently.

The program, “Amigos de Univision,” debuted last weekend, and airs from 7:30-8 a.m. Sundays on UniMás 68 and Univision New York’s digital platforms. The network, part of Univision Communications Inc., the nation’s leading Hispanic media company, said Brea Frank is the host.

On-air contributors will include SHCCNJ leaders Carlos Medina and Luis De La Hoz, among others.

“As area residents shelter in place, ‘Amigos de Univision’ was created to help small business owners, who are the backbone of our communities, weather the economic challenges they’re facing today so they are prepared to thrive when we get through this crisis,” Roberto Yañez, Univision New York’s president and general manager, said in a prepared statement.

The business focus will include topics such as “Small Business 101,” “How to Gain Access to Financial Resources” and more.

“Through this exclusive partnership with the Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey to provide our audience with on-air training, education and support, we hope to support the over 40% of Hispanic small business owners in the tri-state area who provide more than $31 billion in local economic stimulus,” Yañez said.
