Lunario Media is a new digital company that aims to produce Latino programming for audiences seeking to make sense of an uncertain and changing world. Too many Latinos have been made to feel left out of mainstream American society and politics. They are made to feel ill-equipped or unentitled to engage in current debates, and feel they aren’t getting the “full story” from mainstream media, including from traditional Spanish language TV. Bad actors exploit this disconnect, actively shaping new events and issues in harmful or misleading ways. Our mission is to increase our sense of belonging through better engagement of our communities. In our initial stages, the content will be based exclusively on YouTube where research shows that Latinos spend twice as much time as non-Latinos do across all types of content, including news and education. We will take an iterative approach through cycles of experimentation - testing, learning, adapting, testing again - to create engaging, sticky and resonating content.
