By now, we hope you are beginning to see the wonderful work our 2018 Induction media partners are doing. In the last issue, we featured the Denver Business Journal, KMGH 7, and 850 KOA. In this issue, we’d like to tell you more about Colorado Expression magazine, Denver Urban Spectrum, Univision and La Voz.
Colorado Expression (CE) is a bi-monthly lifestyle publication, which celebrates the best in Colorado. From the ski slopes of the Rocky Mountains to the Performing Arts Center in Denver. This is a lifestyle publication targeted to the top 5% of our marketplace. New West Publishing, headed by new company owner Elizabet Hamilton, also publish Confetti Magazine, an annual magazine designed as the definitive source for great event planning. From the best private dinner parties to weddings and the most elaborate corporate events.. Their most recent issue (Feb-Mar) lists the CWHF Induction event and contains all the pertinent information. If you aren’t familiar with CE, you will be by the time you leave our 2018 Induction Gala.

The Denver Urban Spectrum (DUS) is an award-winning monthly publication in Denver, Colorado and has been spreading the news about people of color since 1987. Located in Aurora CO, DUS covers local, national and International news and issues.


Since its launch in 1962 Univision has become a trusted brand in Spanish language news with the largest Latino audience in the United States. That audience has spawned a new generation of “born in the USA” Latinos who may speak or understand Spanish, but consume part of their news in
English. Univision launched its English news format in mid-2016. Their coverage is broad and deep about issues of importance to Latinos in the
U.S. If you tune-in – whether radio or TV – you will catch a glimpse of the public service announcements Univision produced for the Colorado
Women’s Hall of Fame.


LA VOZ is a bilingual publication serving the Hispanic community in Denver, CO. Reaching 120,000 + readers in print and thousands online. Publisher Pauline Rivera says, “We are proud of the accomplishments of our La Voz staff these past several years. The publication is 43 years old and is Colorado’s #1 Hispanic-owned bilingual publication.

CWHF is proud to have these media organizations as our partners for the 2018 Induction.
