Alina Falcon To Lead Telemundo’s News Division

Former Univision News president Alina Falcon (pictured right) will be taking over as the chief news executive at NBCUniversal’s Spanish-language network Telemundo, TVNewser has learned. Falcon will become senior executive VP of news and alternative programming at the network in early December, reporting to Telemundo president Emilio Romano.

In her new role Falcon will oversee all news programming for Telemundo, as well as all alternative and reality programming.

Falcon stepped down from her position as  Univision’s chief news and sports executive last December, transitioning to a consulting role with the company. She had been at Univision for 26 years.

Telemundo has been without a news chief since September, when Ramon Escobar stepped down following the departure of network president Don Browne.

The move is significant, as Falcon (once again) becomes the only woman to lead a major U.S. TV news operation. As Romano notes in the official announcement,  Falcon has a proven track record in news, which Telemundo needs if it wants to compete with Univision in that arena.

Update: It’s official. Release after the jump.
