Spanish media outlet Univision is now in the 24/7 news channel business. The television station announced the launch of “Noticias Univision 24/7,” which will be free and available on their streaming platform Prende TV.
The channel is part of Prende TV’s newly created News category. Furthermore, Univision wanted to get into the 24/7 news because the United States has the second-largest Spanish-speaking population after Mexico.
Spanish-language news consumption continues to grow, and Univision is extending its coverage for viewers who want to receive the news in that language preference.
“Univision’s continued commitment to serving the Spanish-speaking community through rigorous journalism has allowed Univision News to be the No.1 most trusted source of news for U.S. Hispanics for over three decades,” Leopoldo Gómez González, President of Univision News, said.
“‘Noticias Univision 24/7’ complements and strengthens our offerings and enables us to reach and serve our audience on their platform of choice, from TV to online and to mobile, with the highest quality news content and the most innovative storytelling.”
The new programming includes:
- “La Voz de la Mañana” – Monday through Friday 7 to 9 am ET. Carolina Sarassa, Paulina Sodi, and Maity Interiano are the morning show’s hosts.
- “Noticias Univision 24/7” Daytime – Every day from 1 to 3 pm ET. Andrea Linares and Borja Voces are the hosts of this daily live newscast.
- “Noticias Univision 24/7” Primetime – Every day from 7 to 9 pm ET. Aylen del Toro and Carolina Rosario present the most relevant news of the day with commentary from anchors and reporters from across Univision’s local, national and international news divisions.
Tucker Carlson Takes Aim at Howard Stern Over Covid Commentaries
“Maybe it was coronavirus that broke him, maybe it was hormonal changes from middle age, he is now a coward.”
Tucker Carlson took aim at a mega media star on Thursday night. The highly opinionated FOX News host made it clear, he views SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern as a coward.
During Carlson’s show, he focused on comments Stern made on the air on September 7th of 2021 and January 3rd and 19th of 2022 and followed up by labeling the king of all media as a coward. That was further supported on social media where Carlson tweeted out the clip of the segment where he blasted Stern.
“Howard Stern, by any measure, is one of the great radio hosts of all time,” Carlson said as he began his commentary. “He has made a huge amount of money for doing what he does but there is a reason for it. He was incredibly brave, vulgar yes, but truly talented, above all courageous.”
That was followed by Carlson mentioning a number of Stern’s accomplishments and crediting him for his prior fights against free speech and the government.
But then, Carlson described Stern as he sees him now.
“Maybe it was coronavirus that broke him, maybe it was hormonal changes from middle age, he is now a coward. His broadcast is now about cowardice. Amplifying his fears about corona over the air, and attacking, more precisely, attacking anybody else who has decided to live life as a free person.”
Carlson then aired the September clip from Stern’s show where he talked about wanting it mandated that everyone had to be vaccinated. That was then followed by a clip from Stern’s show in early January where he criticized Oprah Winfrey for holding large gatherings at her home.
From there, Tucker mocked Stern and moved into his next soundbyte from Stern’s January 19th program where he said that those who weren’t vaccinated wouldn’t be able to seek treatment at a hospital if he was in power and had his way.
The segment ended with Carlson stating ‘there is something sad about this’ before welcoming Jimmy Dore to the show, who proceeded to ridicule Stern and explain how the satellite radio host has lost his way and turned into a modern day version of Don Imus.
Report: Gayle King to Renew Contract with CBS
King, who recently celebrated her 10th anniversary with CBS, saw her contract coming to an end this year.
“CBS Mornings” co-host Gayle King appears to be staying with the company as CNN’s Brian Stelter reports that she’ll renew her contract.
King, who recently celebrated her 10th anniversary with CBS, saw her contract coming to an end this year. Furthermore, there was speculation whether she’d remain as her deal and that of anchor Norah O’Donnell is due to expire.
Nonetheless, Stelter does caution that CBS hasn’t confirmed King’s renewal, and any new deal most probably never will be. Moreover, the morning show anchor is said to be discreet about contract matters.
“King’s future has been a guessing game both inside and outside CBS for months, so any end to the guessing is a step forward for CBS News boss Neeraj Khemlani,” Stelter wrote.
A few months ago, CBS rebranded its morning show with King at the forefront, so it would be a significant loss to see her go less than a year into the new program.
