Univision Shakes Up News Leadership

Spanish-language broadcaster Univision is changing up the leadership in its news division, with Alina Falcón stepping aside.

Falcón has been with Univision for 26 years, and was most recently in charge of the network’s news and sports divisions. She will remain as a special advisor to the company.

Journalist Isaac Lee is joining Univision as president of news, while Alexander “Sandy” Brown has been named president of sports.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to lead the ongoing development of Univision’s unmatched news offerings,” said Lee in a statement. ” As a longtime member of the Spanish-language media I have always had tremendous respect for the incredible strides that Univision has made in delivering informative, entertaining and empowering content to the U.S. Hispanic community and feel fortunate to have this opportunity to continue enhancing and expanding the impact of Univision’s news offerings well into the future. I look forward to working with the incredible news operations teams at Univision.”
