NY1 Noticias Celebrates 10th Anniversary

NY1 Noticias, New York City’s 24-hour Spanish-language local news channel, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this summer.

“When Noticias launched 10 years ago many predicted it wouldn’t last,” NY1 and NY1 Noticias news director Dan Jacobson said in a statement. “But Noticias’ success has demonstrated the importance of  local news to the Hispanic community, not just local news but local news delivered from a Hispanic perspective.”

In celebration of its 10 years on the air, the station will launch a series looking back at coverage of the big stories over the last decade. Beginning Monday, the station will have an anniversary time and temperature bug as part of its graphics package.
