There are half a billion Spanish speakers worldwide yet only a few Spanish language correspondents are based in Israel. Covering any story without a correspondent on the ground, under deadline and without quick access to information and newsmakers to interview in Spanish, is a real challenge.
Fuente Latina works to ensure that Latino journalists from around the world have access to the facts and experts necessary to accurately cover Israel and related topics in real time.
Fuente Latina is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization known as the trusted source of information in Spanish for global media professionals covering Israel and Middle East issues.
We have worked with thousands of diverse Hispanic journalists and media professionals visiting Israel and covering stories about the region both on the ground and from afar.
Since our inception in 2012, Fuente Latina has facilitated wide coverage of Israel and the region with top global Spanish media: 5,000+ interviews yielding 33,000+ stories; conducted 100+ helicopter tours; 50 Media Fellowships for 300 journalists; and authored over 100 op-eds.
Our experienced team of Spanish-speaking media professionals, producers and videographers work overtime to ensure that Hispanic media have all the tools and resources needed to cover stories and issues that matter most to their respective audiences. Fuente Latina understands that Latino media audiences are culturally diverse and unique. We also understand the need for speed, accuracy, and high-quality content.
Fuente Latina media services assist journalists and influencers in a variety of ways to increase the breadth and depth of news coverage.
Our production team in Israel can help with photographers, videographers, location shoots, on-camera interviews, and other logistical reporting needs. Fuente Latina can serve as production assistants for journalists visiting Israel, but also for outlets looking to cover a story without spending resources on travel. We have produced radio, TV, and print stories for more than 200 journalists reporting on Mideast related stories from Spain, the U.S. and Latin America. Our work has yielded two TV Emmy wins and an Associated Press Broadcasting award for major U.S. Latino networks.
Fuente Latina provides aerial and ground tours for media and influencers to get a close understanding of Israel’s security challenges. We host aerial tours for a wide range of Hispanic trendsetters and leaders. Passengers to date include Latino comedian George Lopez, Argentinean TV personality Marley, and the Vice President and Foreign Minister of Panama Isabel Saint Malo.
Fuente Latina organizes Fellowships to Israel for Hispanic media professionals and influencers from around the world. The unique tour grants international reporting experience and byline opportunities for Spanish language media professionals. All travel, accommodation and food expenses are covered by Fuente Latina. Media Fellows are expected to make the most of this professional work experience and publish or broadcast stories during the weeklong tour or immediately upon their return.
