"Mexican immigrants are used to working hard."Salvador Guzman and his brother are acquiring WPFD-AM Fairview at a selling price of $100,000 plus "an additional amount at closing for seller’s inventory," according to RBR.com. Guzman already owns Nashville's Spanish-language radio station WHEW-AM, according to the report.
Guzman also owns two stores and six local restaurants in the Nashville area, according to a March report in the Tennessean. In a 2007 interview with CNN/Money/Fortune (with photo), Guzman describes his entry into the restaurant business and concludes, "Mexican immigrants are used to working hard."
Guzman has hosted fundraisers for the Republican National Hispanic Assembly of Tennessee (TNRNHA) and for Howard Gentry's mayoral campaign.
In 2006, Guzman was elected to the board of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a national organization of 150 local Hispanic chambers.
