Billboard Latin Conf taking place April 24-27.

Billboard has partnered with MSN to produce a co-branded, Spanish-language Latin music Web site featuring exclusive Billboard content.

Billboard Magazine and Billboard.com will provide artists interviews, music news, album reviews and the weekly Top Latin Albums and Hot Latin Songs Billboard charts.

“Billboard Latino,” the Spanish-language television show produced by 13th Floor Studios that airs Friday evenings and Sunday afternoons on the Azteca America network, will provide exclusive interviews, live sessions, videos and unseen footage, including bloopers and previews of upcoming shows.

“Billboard.latino.msn.com will give Latin music fans access to Billboard’s expansive resources, and we’re thrilled to be at helm as the Latin music market continues to flourish,” says Scott McKenzie,
group editorial director, Billboard Information Group.

The newly-launched web site will also offer ongoing information on the Billboard Latin Music Conference & Awards, taking place April 24-27 at the Ritz Carlton in South Beach.

Both fans and industry will be able to
log on to http://Billboard.latino.msn.com to obtain articles covering the 2006 edition of the conference & awards, history of the awards show, archived album reviews for the 2006 finalists, live performances, red carpet clips, chart data on previous winners and finalists and
artists’ interviews from Billboard on MSN Video.
