UNIVISION LAUNCHES ENGLISH-LANGUAGE NEWSCAST

Univision, trying desperately to stay afloat, is hoping to break into the English-language market with new programming.

To that end, the network last week rolled out the news program “Uvision” that airs Monday through Friday on Fusion TV from 1 to 3 pm.

“UNews”, anchored by Carolina Sarassa and Andrea Linares, will repurpose content from “Noticiero Univision,” as well as feature some original content produced by the Univision news team.

Correspondents will also do English-language standups and file some of their stories in English.

The quiet rollout is reminiscent of Fusion TV’s original mission of providing English-language news for a Hispanic millennial audience.

Perhaps better luck the second time around.
