BURBANK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EstrellaTV, a leading Spanish-language broadcasting network in the U.S., announced today that its number one music awards show, “Premios de la Radio,” will be held in Dallas, Texas in 2019.
“Premios de la Radio” will be broadcast live on November 7, 2019 directly from The Theatre at Grand Prairie in Dallas, Texas. Following its 20-year tradition, the live show will feature Regional Mexican music’s top brass artists and performances during the three hour transmission, and a surprise special musical tribute to be announced soon.
Considered the largest, uninterrupted and single-handedly most important awards show that honors, recognizes and celebrates regional Mexican music in the U.S., “Premios de la Radio” will take place for a second consecutive year outside of California. The decision to move the awards show to the state of Texas is attributed to the rich history the state has in fostering and supporting Regional Mexican music, which includes the state’s prolific and widely popular Norteño and Tejano music genres.
“We are very excited to take this awards show to the great state of Texas. There are many surprises we have in store, which we will share as we get closer to the date of the event. This year marks the 20th anniversary of this great awards ceremony; the only one of its kind in the United States,” stated Pepe Garza, founder of Premios de la Radio and director of programming for La Que Buena Radio 94.3FM/105.5FM in Los Angeles.
The complete list of nominees and guest performers will be officially announced on October 7, 2019.
