Alcalde and Fay partners led the fight for broadcasters’ receiving landmark must-carry rights in the 1992 Cable Act, which assured the carriage of local broadcast signals on local cable systems throughout the nation. Among many other initiatives in promotion of sound public policy in media and communications, Alcalde & Fay partners successfully led the Telemundo and NBC merger, as well as the Hispanic Broadcasting Corporation and Univision merger that promoted strong media outlets focused on minority constituencies in America.
