Top Media Companies in Mexico
The media has always played a crucial role in the development of any society. In the recent years, we have witnessed the growth of media companies in countries like Mexico. Several media companies have emerged in the Mexican television. This has been good news for Mexico which for a long time had its media industry regulated by the government. However, in 2002, the first freedom of information bill was passed and signed by the ruling president at the time, who was president Fox.
Since the signing of the freedom bill, there has been a healthy competition in the Mexican media industry. Some of the big names in the Media include; America Movil, FEMSA, Grupo Mexico, El Puerto de Liverpool, Grupo Televisa, GFNorte, Grupo Bimbo, Grupo Inbursa, Arca Continental and Grupo Carso. Grupo Televisa which is run by Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega is the largest media company in Latin America.
