“The fastest-growing demographic, however, hails from Latin America. According to the latest U.S. census data, between 2000 and 2010, the Latino population in Buffalo increased by almost 25 percent. Six percent of city residents today speak Spanish, and at least five news outlets in Buffalo cater to this diverse community.”
One of the Spanish speaking news outlets in Buffalo is “La Voz de WNY, a Spanish-language public affairs talk show that airs on Time Warner channel 20.”
