KTLA weekend news anchor Elizabeth Espinosa (pictured) is about to front a most intriguing sideline Spanish-language one-hour weekday news magazine. The show is called Sin Límites, is being produced by CNN Latino and will air locally on KBEH-DT Channel 63 at 8 p.m. PT.
From the network announcement:
“Elizabeth is a passionate communicator,” said Cynthia Hudson-Fernandez, senior vice president and general manager of CNN en Español and Hispanic strategy for CNN/U.S. “With her roots, her drive for communicating under-told stories and her journalistic accomplishments, she will lead destination programming for today’s multicultural and multilingual U.S. Hispanic generation…”
Added Espinosa: “I am proud to begin with CNN Latino, a bold new venture in my city of Los Angeles. I’m sure that I will continue to grow in the path that I dreamed of, giving the best of me to the audience.”
CNN Latino debuts January 28, with Sin Límites set up for Espinosa to explore current topical issues. The KTLA anchor won an Emmy for her 2007 special “Forgotten Footprints: The Hunted Children of Uganda.” Congrats to her on this bold and very exciting additional career step.
A network rep tells FishbowlLA that Espinosa’s show will gradually expand its reach beyond LA as CNN Latino expands to other top U.S> TV broadcast markets.
