“Straight Out of Barrio Hollywood.”
Frank Cruz, a professor turned journalist and then media executive, shares his memoirs as a pioneering Chicano reporter and then the founder of Spanish-language television network Telemundo. In his book, “Straight out of Barrio Hollywood,” Cruz writes about how the challenges growing up in a hard-working family in a humble Tucson barrio, helped him forge the risk-taking spirit needed to eventually launch the national Telemundo network and then become the first minority to serve as chair of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
Guest: Frank Cruz, Author, “Straight Out of Barrio Hollywood: The Adventures of Telemundo Co-Founder Frank H. Cruz,” Los Angeles, CA.
