The media industry in Mexico has come a long way from a period when new media companies faced a lot of challenges establishing themselves because of the monopoly of the industry and the numerous barriers of entry. But today, Mexico has one of the most vibrant media industries in North America, enabling the people of Mexico and Latin America at large to receive the best news coverage and entertainment. Grupo Televisa, under the guidance of Alfonso de Angoitia as executive vice president, was one of the pioneers of the Mexican media industry as we know it today. It paved way for other leading media companies in Mexico such as Univision, Bolsa Mexicana de Valores, Azteca and Empresas Cablevision among others.
