Univision Noticias is an upcoming American Spanish language cable news channel. It is owned by Univision Communications and is targeted at the Hispanic and Latino community in the United States.


In May 2011, Univision Communications announced three new cable television channels to strengthen its position in the Latino market and diversify revenues, including one dedicated to news and information.[1] Latinos were the United States' fastest growing population according to the 2010 census, which has prompted media companies to increase their presence in Spanish-language television.[1] In addition, Univision hopes to benefit from increased demand for Spanish-language news programs. From 2000 to 2010, the Univision network's primetime news magazine Aquí y Ahora increased its viewership while its English-language counterparts on ABC, NBC and CBS lost half their viewers.[2]

Among the channel's first hires were British-born Karl Penhaul, Chilean photojournalist Carlos Villalon, and Mexican-born María Antonieta Collins.[2] Collins rejoined the Univision network as senior special correspondent having left in 2005.[3] Penhaul left Univision in January 2012.[4]

Univision Noticias secured a carriage deal with the Dish Network in January 2012. It will be offered on Dish's Latino programming package.[5][6]
