Univision Communications Inc. (UCI) breaks new ground with the launch of Edición Puerto Rico (Puerto Rico Edition), a modern-style anchorless news designed and produced to deliver the most-topical information, news and entertainment for the Puerto Rican community.
The daily 30-minute news show premieres Monday, March 19 on local UniMás stations in Atlanta, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, and Raleigh and on local Univision stations in Puerto Rico and Entravision Communications affiliates in Boston, Hagerstown, Hartford, Orlando and Tampa. Edición Puerto Rico will broadcast in the morning in Atlanta, Boston, Hagerstown, Hartford, Chicago, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Tampa and Raleigh (check local listings) and at 11 p.m. AST in Puerto Rico.
“We are bringing together our resources to inform the millions of Puerto Ricans, regardless of where they live. In face of relentless challenges, this 30-minute program is another example of how Univision is committed to informing our communities through news and delivering the content our audience is looking for,” said Chris Peña, SVP of News, Local Media, UCI.
Edición Puerto Rico will include news stories from local Univision-affiliate in Puerto Rico and local Univision stations; weather from the state-of-the-art Univision Weather Center; and Puerto Rico’s WLII and WKAQ’s political analysis program, Jugando Pelota Dura (Playing Hardball).
