The Chamber's Media Partners serve a diverse community. Whether local or regional in scope, they showcase the commercial activities of the small business sector. In so doing, they give visibility to businesses and entrepreneurs that might not be featured in other channels of mass communication.
Delaware's demographics continue to change. The most dynamic force over the last twenty years has been the emerging economic, political and cultural power of the Latino Community. Over roughly that same time period, the Delaware newspaper of record chronicling this change has been, and continues to be, HOY en Delaware. Established in 1996, HOY en Delaware has been serving the Hispanic Community in both Spanish and English aiming to be also a bridge of understanding among all residents throughout the First State.
From soccer games to weddings, high school graduations to small business grand openings; HOY en Delaware features events, education, finance, health issues and plenty of information. It reflects the hopes, aspirations and challenges facing a community comprised of immigrants from Mexico, Guatemala, Centroamérica and other nations in Delaware's Latino diaspora. But HOY goes much farther than merely reporting on events; it bridges the gap between the Anglo and Latino communities.
HOY is a monthly newspaper with 9,000 issues and steadily growing (it has a current print readership of 35,000). HOY is distributed at 340 distribution points from New Castle to Sussex counties, plus the towns of Salisbury, Easton and Ocean City in Maryland. As it grows in popularity, both readers and advertisers are benefiting from its format which now includes online video and mobile delivery systems.
Numerous business and nonprofit organizations use HOY en Delaware to relay helpful information to all the community. HOY in Delaware is a member of the Delaware Press Association, the Mid-Atlantic Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Hispanic Publications and the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce.
