Congratulations on another hugely successful conference. I have participated in Radio Ink's Hispanic Radio Conference every year since it was started, and I have watched it grow in attendance every year. And with the addition of the first Radio Ink Sports Radio Conference this year, it was an amazing back-to-back combination. I wouldn’t miss it.
