“DUB is one of the most important and transformative auto magazines, brands and influencers for the mun2 audience – young, adult Latinos,” said Diana Mogollon, General Manager, mun2. “They are DUB readers, transforming their cars, creating a unique lifestyle and starting trends that go beyond four wheels. Our audience lives and creates an identity that meshes music, fashion, family and cars – from creating customized cars through paint, art and horsepower to experiencing la vida to the fullest. Their car doesn’t just take them there, it describes them, and that is what DUB Latino reflects.”
