TELEMUNDO TO PREVIEW PLANS FOR COVERAGE OF FIFA 2018 WORLD CUP FROM RUSSIA AT THE 15TH ANNUAL HISPANIC TELEVISION SUMMIT THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2017 SHERATON NEW YORK HOTEL

7/11/2017 9:45 AM

NEW YORK, NY (July 11, 2017) – Attendees of the 15th Annual Hispanic Television Summit, presented by NewBay Media’s Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News, will get a sneak preview of Telemundo’s plans for Spanish language television coverage and promotion of the upcoming FIFA 2018 World Cup from Russia. The plans will be revealed in a special presentation by the four leading executives responsible for the network’s inaugural telecast of this event.

Telemundo, the Spanish language television network, is a part of NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises. The four executives, who are each steering a different segment of the network’s maiden coverage of the World Cup, represent various divisions of the NBCUniversal organization. They are Ray Warren, President Telemundo Deportes; Jim Bell, President NBC Olympics Production & Programming and the Executive Producer of Telemundo World Cup; Laura Molen, Executive Vice President, Advertising Sales, Lifestyle Group and Telemundo Enterprises, NBCUniversal; and Eli Velazquez, Executive Vice President, Programming Production and Content, Telemundo Deportes.

FIFA World Cup is historically the most popular sports event for Hispanic viewers, and the advertisers who want to reach them. Most recently it generated over $175 million in Hispanic television ad revenues alone. “There’s nothing bigger for Hispanic TV sports fans than World Cup. We know that Telemundo is excited to be delivering this iconic sports event to Latino viewers for the first time,” said Louis Hillelson, Group Publisher and Vice president of NewBay Media’s Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News. He continued “That’s why it is so important to provide these four executives with a platform to introduce Telemundo’s plans to our Summit attendees who are in the business of television and video for Hispanic viewers, worldwide.”

The 15th Annual Hispanic Television Summit, will be presented by NewBay Media’s Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News on Thursday October 19, 2017 at the Sheraton New York Hotel.
