NEW YORK—ABC News and Univision are teaming up to start an English-language news network aimed at Latinos.
The networks said Monday that a website and mobile content will be available this summer. A television network is expected next year. The venture doesn’t have a name yet.
Univision News President Isaac Lee says the network will not only inform Latino Americans, but let viewers of all nationalities know what issues are important to people within this growing demographic.
Disney and ABC Television Group chairwoman Anne Sweeney say the venture is an important step in broadening ABC’s reach.
