CNN Shutters CNN Latino

cnn latinoCNN is shutting down CNN Latino just a year after its launch. The eight-hour syndicated news and entertainment block will shutter later this month, Media Moves reports.

“CNN Latino was a bold effort to continue CNN’s commitment to the U.S. Hispanic marketplace.  Unfortunately, despite the great efforts of many talented people, CNN Latino was not able to fulfill our business expectations and we are discontinuing the programming this month,” a CNN spokesperson said in a statement. “Over the course of the past year we learned a lot and we will use what we learned to continue to innovate and evolve our presence in the Hispanic community.”

An unknown number of staffers will lose their jobs, according to Media Moves.
