NY1 Noticias received Tuesday the 2013 Latino Trendsetter Award for Media Company of the Year.
Noticias is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
Leaders said that the network started out small, but has grown into a force for the Latino community.
"You know, much of the media, I think, tends to focus on the negative, and often just overlooks the Latino community altogether," said Dan Jacobson, NY1's news director. "I think it's really important that we provide stories every day about the challenges that face the community, and also the contributions that Latino New Yorkers make every day to this city that we all live in."
The Trendsetter Awards honored Latino filmmakers, entrepreneurs, and leaders in technology and social media.
