LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes mourns the unexpected passing and honors the lasting achievements of Walter F. Ulloa, a founding member of the LA Plaza’s Board of Trustees. Ulloa, a visionary who shaped the media world for U.S. Latinos, was Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Entravision Communications Corporation.
As a founding member of our Board of Trustees, Ulloa worked together with former Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina and other business and community leaders in the establishment of our museum and cultural center. He was honored in 2021 and again in 2022 at LA Plaza’s Pobladores Awards gala for his trailblazing efforts in inspiring and enriching the community he loved so dearly.
Ulloa began his career at KMEX-34 in Los Angeles in 1976, and in 1996, he co-founded Entravision, which currently owns and operates approximately 100 domestic television and radio stations and digital operations in 40 countries.
LA Plaza’s board and staff are saddened by his sudden passing and extend our heartfelt sympathies to his family, friends, and colleagues.
