CNN Latino Launches in Miami

CNN Latino is expanding to Miami. Beginning in August, the network will be available on broadcast television from 3 to 11pmET on WDFL, as well as three cable channels.

Tomas Johansen will serve as president and general manager of the station. The station’s local programming will include “Maria Elvira,” a primetime talk show hosted by Maria Elvira Salazar.

“I’m pleased to include Miami in our expansion plans since it is critical to the development of a long-term, viable network of affiliates,” Cynthia Hudson, senior vice president and general manager of CNN en Español and Hispanic Strategy for CNN/U.S., said in a statement. “I’m also happy CNN Latino Miami will broadcast “Maria Elvira,” hosted by Maria Elvira Salazar, a journalist who is known for her unique style, respect and tenacity.”

CNN Latino is also available in Los Angeles, New York, Orlando, Tampa, Phoenix and Salt Lake City. With the expansion to Miami, the network will be available in markets that represent more than one-third of U.S. Hispanic homes.
