There is a real demand for relevant, dynamic, and quality programming and CNN Latino is a unique product, designed specifically for the growing Hispanic audience in the United States that represents the dual reality of today’s Latinos in the U.S., who are multi-generational and are proud to be bilingual. The launch of CNN Latino is the first step in bringing this syndicated programming block to local broadcasters in the key markets in the U.S.”
