CNN Money provided us with our idea for Immigrant of the Day. Once a child refugee of the Cuban Revolution, Raul Alarcón, Jr. helped his father build America's largest Spanish language radio empire. Now CEO of SBS Broadcasting, Alarcón oversees 13 Spanish language radio stations across the U.S. The company also owns the Mega television network, a digital radio and video streaming service called La Música and a concert production company.

Alarcón and his parents arrived in New York from Cuba when he was four years old in 1960. They set down roots in Flushing, Queens.
Alarcón joined SBS in 1983 as an account executive and has been President and a director since October 1985 and Chief Executive Officer since 1994. In 1999, Alarcón became our Chairman of the board of directors and continues as Chief Executive Officer and President.
