The award winning journalist uses independent programming and influential role in the Latino community to revolutionize traditional Latino media by bringing edutainment to the forefront

Jackeline Cacho is the host of the weekly show "Triunfadores Latinos"

"We, Latinos, are smart and driven individuals, and programing should reflect that, but most does not."

Jackeline Cacho, host of TV show “Triunfadores Latinos” and vice president of Finding Productions, has made it her life’s work to promote the integration of education into traditional entertainment and programming. Her and her husband Thene Mucino, Mexican director and president of Finding Productions, highlight leaders within the Latino community as part of their weekly show “Triunfadores Latinos.” You can watch Jackeline Cacho on Wednesdays at 8 AM on Mundo Fox 22 and on Saturdays at 1 PM on Super 22.2.

“Latino media outlets are not doing what they should be doing for our kids and for education,” said Cacho. “Those in the industry have a responsibility to be pioneers in bringing value to the programming that is out there.”

Jackeline Cacho’s focus on edutainment is a continuation of a life-long humanitarian effort. The talented Cacho has received numerous awards for her work in the community, from “Pilgrim of the Millennium” by the Israeli government, the coveted “THEMIS 2010” award by the International Confederation of Lawyer’s in Puebla- Mexico to an honorary diploma due to her humanitarian efforts by Peru’s leadership. She was even named one of the 25 Most Influential Latino Women by Latino Leaders Magazine.

The couple’s focus on edutainment is not limited to broadcast, as the two make it a point to be involved in community events whenever possible. On Saturday April 13th both will attend a technology-driven event in South Los Angeles, the poorest area of the city. There, Cacho will discuss the importance of education within entertainment and will include how digital communications plays a role. The event will be hosted by a local nonprofit, URBAN Teens eXploring Technology, and will be held at a South LA school (address below).

“I feel like it is my duty to provide my audiences quality content that makes them think,” explained Cacho. “We, Latinos, are smart and driven individuals, and programing should reflect that, but most does not.”

A similar event that unites the Latino community will be the April 27th Conferencia y Expo de Empresarios Latinos 2013 for Latino entrepreneurs and business leaders. Jackeline Cacho will be the MC of the event, where she will have a chance to share the value of education and community in relation to success in the business world. Close to 1,000 Latino business owners will come together to discuss trends and opportunities in the market for small and medium size businesses.

“Some think education only matters so that you can get a job and work in a company,” says Cacho. “Education opens up a world much bigger than that, it gives you the tools to be a visionary, to own and create an enterprise you are truly passionate about.”

URBAN TxT’s South LA Hack-A-Thon will be held at the Normandie Christian School, located at 6306 S. Normandie Ave., Los Angeles 90044. The Conferencia y Expo de Empresarios Latinos 2013 will be held at the Brookhurts Community Center, 2271 West Crescente Ave., Anaheim 92801.
