Whether you’re tuning into English or Spanish-language media, it’s pretty
much impossible to turn on the TV or radio these days and not hear
something about Donald Trump. With all his talk of Mexicans being “rapists
and criminals,” of “anchor babies,” deportations and building a wall along
the border, Trump is not gaining many supporters in the Latino community.
But he is gaining a lot of attention – and air time – on Spanish-language
radio.

*Here & Now’*s Meghna Chakrabarti talks with *Dolores Inés Casillas*, an
associate professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and
author of “Sounds of Belonging: U.S. Spanish-language Radio and Public
Advocacy
<http://www.amazon.com/Sounds-Belonging-Spanish-language-Advocacy-Communication/dp/081477024X?tag=wburorg-20>,”
about what Spanish-language radio is saying about Trump, who’s listening
and what impact Spanish media is likely to have on the 2016 race.
