Less than a month since rejoining TelevisaUnivision as news president, the company has expanded Daniel Coronell’s role company-wide in the U.S.
In an internal communication, staffers were told that effective immediately, all news programming across the organization will be consolidated under Coronell, adding the “strategic decision aligns editorial content between network news and local stations.”
The consolidation, the company says, will “foster tighter editorial alignment… centralize our operational capabilities and enhance the cross-promotion of news content.”
As part of the change, the company will establish a new, as-yet-untitled position for a “unified function lead” to whom local news directors will report. This lead will be answer to Coronell.
The company did not provide a timeline for the position to be filled, but stated it is “actively engaged in identify the most qualified candidate” who will work with all news directors on “everything from hiring, performance management, editorial alignment, content development, and more.”
