Cristina Saralegui, host of Univision’s top-rated The Cristina Show, has been unanimously elected into the Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame, which each year honors those who have made significant contributions to the electronic arts. Cristina joins luminaries in the Hall of Fame Roster such as Eduardo Caballero, Johnny Carson, Tom Brokaw, Ted Koppel, Dan Rather, Dick Clark and Jackie Gleason.
“The Reed Television Group is extremely proud to recognize Cristina’s accomplishments in more than 16 years as host of ‘The Cristina Show’,” says Charlie Koones, President of the Reed Television Group. “Through the medium of television, Cristina has educated, enlightened and entertained millions of people. Her induction into the Hall of Fame is well-deserved.”
“It is one of the greatest honors of my life to be inducted into the Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame,” says Cristina. “Throughout my television career, I have tried to entertain my people and sometimes perhaps slip in a little information they can use. I thank the Reed Television Group for this great recognition.”
The Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame was established 15 years ago to honor professionals in all reaches of Radio, Television, Cable and Satellite who have been the pioneers, innovators and stars of the media. The 15th annual Hall of Fame event will take place on Monday evening, October 24th in New York’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel. The event is a formal dinner whose proceeds will benefit The Broadcasters’ Foundation and Cable Positive.
