Univision Offers Digital News In English

Targeted to digital users who consume news in English, the new “Univision News” section takes Univision’s original content and a Latino perspective to an English-speaking audience.

 

Univision on Thursday launched an English-language section within its digital platform, UnivisionNoticias.com. Titled Univision News, the section is available via Univision.com/univision-news.

The Univision News section aims to expand Univision’s reach by serving an English-speaking audience. Through a combination of written, photo and video content, Univision says, the section “provides in-depth news coverage with a unique Latino perspective that English speakers will not find on other media outlets.”

 Featuring everything from politics, business, health, education and immigration to the environment, sports, culture and expanded coverage of Latin America, Univision News now brings the Univision’s reporting to millions of digital users who also consume news in English, many of which are second- or third-generation Latinos.

In addition to covering every angle of the U.S. presidential race and all major domestic and international news stories, the section will closely follow events in Latin America and feature extensive coverage of the issues that matter most to the U.S. Hispanic community.

Univision News presents a curated selection of translated content from UnivisionNoticias.com and from dozens of Univision TV and radio affiliates across the country, combined with exclusive reporting from Univision News’ investigative unit Univision Investiga, collaborations with Fusion in addition to original articles and features created specifically for the new section in English.

Among the articles featured in its launch edition today is an original data-driven report on the legal limbo that passengers find themselves in when they travel on ships from cruise lines based in the U.S. — “Vacations in No Man’s Sea” — a six-month investigative collaboration with professor and journalist Giannina Segnini and her students at Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.

BRAND CONNECTIONS

Upcoming features include an in-depth report on the historic expansion of the Panama Canal, photojournalism specials such as the recent report on the Middle Eastern refugee crisis by Pulitzer prize-winning photographer Javier Bauluz and other digital specials like “Colorado River: Hispanics to the Rescue.”

The Univision News section of UnivisionNoticias.com is headed by British journalist David C. Adams, winner of journalistm awards including the Maria Moors Cabot Prize from Columbia University. Prior to joining Univision, he was the Miami bureau chief for the Reuters news agency.
