New York, New York (PRWEB) September 30, 2016
The nation’s 35 million Latinas now have new voice. Latina Media Ventures today announced that Emmy-nominated host and former Woman’s Day and In Style editor, Robyn Moreno, has been promoted from Executive Editor to Editorial Director of Latina Media Ventures. Effective immediately, Moreno will oversee all editorial for Latina magazine and Latina.com as well as all content for the franchise’s social, digital and video channels.
“My first job after graduating college was at Latina,” said Moreno. “So to be in charge of shaping the direction and image of Latina’s everywhere as the magazine celebrates its 20th anniversary is a tremendous honor.”
Latina was the first in its space and remains the largest magazine aimed at celebrating and inspiring acculturated Latinas. In her new role, Moreno plans to place more of an editorial focus on reshaping the narratives of Latinas by including more stories and in-depth features that highlight areas in which Latinas are thriving, such as the growing number of entrepreneurs, their role on environment issues, and their positive strides in education among other topics.
“In this year of unprecedented anger towards Latinos, I have the privilege and ability to help break outdated stereotypes by highlighting the achievements of Latinas today,” said Moreno. “I take an inordinate amount of pride and responsibility in celebrating and shaping the narratives of Latinas everywhere.”
As a former Emmy-nominated TV host, Moreno will also oversee a new beauty web series, “Beauty Our Way,” and will help Latina and Latina.com populate it’s wellness and leadership content. And, in addition to annual events like the Hollywood Hot List party, Moreno will also help shepherd new events like the Latina Leadership Summit.
Over the past decade, Robyn has been nominated for an Emmy as the host and producer of the lifestyle show Plum Daily Hamptons and has contributed editorial that has appeared in Elle, InStyle, Glamour, Cosmo for Latinas, Latina, Woman’s Day & Woman’s Day Latina, Manhattan, Beach, USA TODAY, The New York Daily News, Redbook.com, Jetsetter.com, Aloha.com, SheKnows.com, TheLatinKitchen.com, and About.com.
She has become one of the most sought-after lifestyle experts in the country based on her belief that personal style, along with beauty and joy, can be achieved easily in all areas of life, regardless of budget. This philosophy prompted her to publish a weekly newsletter and blog, Pockets of Pretty, at RobynMoreno.com and write a bestselling Amazon book, Practically Posh: The Smart Girl’s Guide to a Glam Life (HarperCollins).
She appears regularly on The Today Show, Extra, The Meredith Vieira Show, The Steve Harvey Show, and Fox & Friends discussing chic DIY projects and offering her stylish-yet-affordable tips.
Robyn is a native Texan and proud Latina of Mexican-American decent. She currently resides in Cold Spring, New York with her two daughters and husband. You can catch her speaking at the Omega Institute Women & Power 2015 conference leading a workshop titled “The Guru is You: Learn How to Trust Your Inner Voice.”
Her new book, Hecho By You: Make a Life You Love From The Inside Out will be published in winter 2016.
