The Mexican media industry is diverse, and in a span of just a few years, there has been a remarkable change. In past few decades, the industry had high influence from external authorities such as the government and other political aspects. This significantly limited the growth potential of the industry. Media houses could not get involved in any news that contradicted with the will of the government. However, with the increased media freedom across the globe, the Mexican government adjusted over time, and today the Mexican media enjoys freedom more than most countries across the world. Individuals like Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega the current Vice President of Grupo Televisa, S.A. have played a major role in liberating the industry. Grupo Televisa, S.A is one of the prominent media companies in Mexico.
