Abc And Univision To Partner On An All-news Site
It's now official ABC and Univision have signed a deal to debut a new cable news channel in mid-2013 that will focus on events affecting the Latino community. Prior to that, the two television networks plan to launch a website in the fall of this year that will "provide news and information from a Latino perspective." Both the cable channel and the website will deliver the news in English. There was no indication in the official statements whether any of the content will also be in Spanish. The channel will be based in Miami, where Univision's news operations are already headquartered. The joint venture has applied for $10.5 million in tax incentives from Miami-Dade County and the State of Florida, the South Florida Business Journal reported last week. If the application is not granted, the companies said, they plan to base their operations in either New York, Los Angeles or Houston.
