Recipients include Cesar Conde, chairman of NBCUniversal International Group and NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises, DIRECTV, and Univision Network hosts Lili Estefan and Raúl De Molina.

The 2016 Award for Executive Leadership in Hispanic Television & Video will be presented for the first time, and NYC Television & Video Week is honored to name Cesar Conde from NBCUniversal as the inaugural recipient. In addition to Conde’s social and community initiatives aimed at empowering the Hispanic community in areas of education, health and finance, his many years of dedication to the financial growth and development of the Hispanic segment within the television industry are venerable.
As a video, internet, and mobile service provider to the greatest number of potential Hispanic customers, at&t/DIRECTV will be given the Award for Corporate Leadership in Hispanic Television & Video, which will be accepted by Karla G. Sustaita, director of multicultural video products for AT&T Entertainment Group.
