MIAMI – AUGUST 25, 2016 – Univision News, the award-winning news division of Univision Communications Inc. (UCI), the leading media company serving Hispanic America, today announced that Patsy Loris has been promoted to executive vice president of news and executive news director. In her new role, Loris will now lead the programming efforts for all Univision Network news shows, including the three editions of its national newscast, “Noticiero Univision” (evening), “Noticiero Univision Edición Nocturna” (late night) and “Noticiero Univision Fin de Semana” (weekend), the newsmagazines “Primer Impacto,” “Aquí y Ahora” and “Crónicas de Sábado” as well as the Sunday morning political show “Al Punto.” Executive producers for each of these news properties will now report directly to Loris. She will continue reporting to Daniel Coronell, president of Univision News.

Loris joined the Univision family in 1988. She was named vice president of News in 2013 when she played a key role in the launch of FUSION, working closely with ABC News in the development of show concepts and in the hiring of personnel for the English-language network’s news team. Prior to that, she had been senior news director for Univision. In 2015, she was promoted to senior vice president of News and senior news director.

Under Loris’s leadership, Univision News has earned some of the most prestigious awards in journalism, including Peabody Awards, Walter Cronkite Awards and King of Spain Journalism Awards. As a news producer, Loris has been recognized with an Edward R. Murrow Award and four Emmys.

During the course of her distinguished career in broadcast journalism, Loris has traveled the globe to cover the most important news stories and has secured interviews with many influential world leaders. In 2007 she created and produced “Al Punto with Jorge Ramos,” Univision’s highly rated Sunday morning public affairs program. Building on the show’s success, this year Loris has been instrumental in the creation, development and launch of Univision News’ regional program “Al Punto Florida,” which has earned excellent ratings and has quickly become a must for politicians looking to win elections in Florida, as well as other state and community leaders wishing to engage the rapidly-growing Hispanic-American population.

“As an immensely valuable member of the Univision family for nearly three decades, Patsy has been on the front line of the evolution of Spanish-language news programming in the U.S.,” said Daniel Coronell. “Her production experience, talent and creativity have inspired her to use state-of-the-art technology to make our news shows more dynamic, fast-paced and innovative, while ensuring that they continue to be the most trusted source of news for Hispanic America. With this new promotion, we are proud to recognize once again, her countless contributions to the success of Univision News.”
