Spanish Broadcasting System promotes Elisa Torres to Chief Network Officer/Executive VP for Aire Radio Networks and SBS National. Torres, the first female executive to hold a Chief position at SBS, will continue to oversee AIRE Radio Networks and spearhead the advancement of all network and national audio sales and marketing solutions. She was elevated to EVP in 2017 and initially joined SBS in 2013 to lead the establishment of AIRE Radio Networks and its syndication efforts.

Prior to joining AIRE Radio Networks and SBS, Torres played a role in establishing and developing some of the first Spanish Language audio networks in the country. She started her career with Caracol Radio and worked her way up to be an executive with Cumulus Media, formally ABC Radio Networks, where she launched ABC Radio Networks en Espanol and ESPN Deportes, the first Spanish Language sports network.

"Elisa has played an instrumental role in the creation, growth and development of Aire Radio Networks and our SBS national audio divisions," said SBS Chairman Raul Alarcon Jr. "Her transformational leadership combined with her tenacity to develop innovative partnership solutions and strategies has resulted in significant year-over-year revenue growth for our company. We are excited to have her at the helm of our continued advancement."

"The growth and success of Aire Radio Networks over the past ten years is a testament of Elisa's unique entrepreneurial ability to build audio vehicles that effectively reach and culturally engage Hispanic consumers across the country," added President and COO Albert Rodriguez. "From developing revenue-generating cross-platform solutions to overseeing one of our most successful operations, we couldn't be more proud to announce Elisa as the first female chief in SBS history."

"It's one of my greatest honors to work with the largest minority owned and certified Spanish Language multimedia company in the nation," said Torres. "I'm extremely grateful for the trust and commitment I've received from Raul, Albert and the SBS family for allowing me the opportunity to build a network that delivers on my passion to empower and inspire the Latino community."
