Broadcasting in Mexico.
de Noriega, Luis Antonio; Leach, Frances
This monograph traces the growth of Mexico's broadcasting services against the background of that country's geographical, cultural, demographic, economic, and political structures. Specific areas dealt with within the six chapters of the monograph are: (1) the national environment for broadcasting; (2) the advent and development of broadcasting in Mexico; (3) broadcasting structures and regulatory frames; (4) commercial and noncommercial radio; (5) commercial and noncommercial television, including the development of "Televisa," a communications conglomerate; and (6) the future of Mexican broadcasting. Appendixes contain maps of Mexico and of Televisa's television networks, tables providing a comparative analysis of the broadcasting hours and local foreign productions per year of the television networks within Televisa, and organization charts for Televisa and for a department governing Mexican radio, television, and motion pictures.
