More Hispanic-Americans in the newsrooms, please

The National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) has set itself the goal of increasing the number of Hispanics working in newsrooms. Currently 3.8% of US journalists (print, radio, online and TV) are Hispanic or of Hispanic descent, an increase of 2.6% since 1984. NHJ's goal is to increase the number of Hispanic TV and radio journalists by 50% within the next 10 years. For print journalists NHJ has the even more ambitious target of an 100% increase. Juan González, president of NHJ, explains their plan “to visit magazine publishers to let them know that there are many Latino journalists available for freelance jobs, as well for full-time positions.” González notes that there are 17,000 different magazines in the US that commission a lot of “freelance work.”
