Univision New York announced the launch of the very first full-time Spanish-language news bureau in Albany, NY—a historic move marking the first time that a Hispanic television news station in New York will have a full-time presence based in the state capital. Celebrated multimedia journalist Romy Cabral joins Noticias Univision 41 WXTV to lead local coverage as its new Albany State House reporter. Cabral will conduct special reports and break important stories across all of Univision 41’s platforms from the State Legislature that directly impact New York’s Hispanic community.

“Looking ahead to the 2020 Presidential election and the upcoming local races all over New York State, it is more important than ever to cover the legislative stories that directly impact our community. With the launch of the first-ever Hispanic local television bureau in Albany, Univision New York can better serve our audience with on-the-ground political reporting straight from the Statehouse steps,” said Esteban Creste, Vice President of News at Univision New York. “As a stellar political journalist with experience in covering important domestic legislative issues, Romy Cabral is uniquely qualified to run our inaugural Albany bureau. We are excited to have her join our first-class roster of political journalists here at Univision New York.”
 
“Noticias Univision 41 is the most vital news source for Hispanics in the Tri-State area and I am honored to be the first full-time Spanish-language political reporter to be based in Albany,” said Cabral. “I look forward to informing the Latino community in New York about the political events and laws that will affect their day-to-day lives from the home of their state government.”
