History[edit] 1954–1983[edit] WKAQ-TV[edit] Main article: WKAQ-TV The Telemundo
Telemundo
brand traces back to the sign-on of WKAQ-TV
WKAQ-TV
(channel 2) in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on March 28, 1954, which was founded by Ángel Ramos – owner of Puerto Rico's main newspaper at the time, El Mundo, and the U.S. territory's first radio station, WKAQ (also known as "Radio El Mundo"). Ramos wanted to maintain a consistent branding for his media properties based around the "mundo" theme (the Spanish word for "world"), and chose to brand his new television property as "Telemundo" (in effect, translating to "Teleworld" or "World TV"). Ramos had tried to obtain a television station license as early as the mid-1940s; however, because of a freeze imposed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that suspended the filing and approval of broadcast license applications for new television stations in the United States
United States
and its territories due to World War II, he had to wait until 1954 to obtain the license.[6] In its early years, Ramos maintained continuity between his radio and television stations by signing an exclusive deal with the most well-known and influential actor/comedian/producer in Puerto Rico, Ramón Rivero – better known as Diplo – whose comedy show El Tremendo Hotel ("The Tremendous Hotel"), which was broadcast on WKAQ radio, was the most popular radio program in Puerto Rican broadcasting history. Rivero produced the first comedy/variety series for WKAQ-TV, "La Taberna India", and La Farándula Corona on YouTube, which helped to catapult the television station to the top of the ratings. During the 1970s and 1980s, WKAQ-TV, then branded as " Telemundo
Telemundo
Canal 2" (" Telemundo
Telemundo
Channel 2"), had become a major producer of telenovelas. The station was also known for its "fingers" logo – a bold number "2" with the silhouette of two upright fingers inside the number – and referred to itself as "El canal de los dedos" ("The Channel of the Fingers"). On April 14, 1983, Ramos sold WKAQ-TV
WKAQ-TV
to John Blair & Co.[citation needed] NetSpan[edit] 1984–1987[edit] In 1984, the owners of WNJU
WNJU
(channel 47) in Linden, New Jersey (serving the New York City area) and KSTS
KSTS
(channel 48) in San Jose, California formed NetSpan, the second Spanish-language television network in the continental United States
United States
(behind the longer-established Spanish International Network, the forerunner to Univision). These stations joined KVEA
KVEA
(channel 52) in Los Angeles, run by its general manager and part-owner Joe Wallach, in 1985.[7] The following year, KVEA's part-owner, Reliance Group Holdings, acquired the Telemundo
Telemundo
brand when it purchased John Blair & Co., which also owned WSCV (channel 51) in Fort Lauderdale–Miami- West Palm Beach
West Palm Beach
in addition to WKAQ-TV. In late 1986, Reliance also purchased WNJU. In 1987, Reliance Capital Group executives Saul Steinberg and Henry Silverman merged all these stations into the Telemundo
Telemundo
Group.[8] The new corporation quickly went public, and in 1987, Reliance decided to rebrand NetSpan as Telemundo. Later that year, it purchased additional stations in San Francisco, Houston

(KTMD, channel 47) and San Antonio (KVDA, channel 60). Telemundo[edit] 1988–1997[edit]

Telemundo
underwent another management change, appointing former Univision
Univision
president Joaquin Blaya – who resigned from that network after discovering in an FCC filing for A. Jerrold Perenchio's purchase of the network from Hallmark Cards
Hallmark Cards
that Univision
Univision
would increase its reliance on programming from Televisa
Televisa
and Venevision
Venevision
to levels that resulted in him concluding that there would be fewer opportunities for the addition of local programs on Univision's stations, and was subsequently joined by four other Univision executives – to head the network.[9] The following year in 1993, Telemundo
Telemundo
underwent an extensive rebranding, introducing the signature framed "T" letter logo (which has been used by the network since that point in various design elements), and a promotional campaign using the slogan "Arriba, Telemundo, Arriba" ("Upwards, Telemundo, Upwards"). The network also began to produce its own original telenovelas, the first of which to premiere were Angélica, mi vida ("Angelica, My Life"), Marielena, Guadalupe, Señora Tentación ("Lady Temptation") and Tres Destinos ("Three Destinations"). International distributors soon approached the network for the syndication rights to air these programs on television networks in other countries. Telemundo's effort faced an initial setback when Mexico's leading broadcaster, Televisa, purchased production company Capitalvision, which had been producing the telenovelas in conjunction with the network. Parent company Telemundo Group experienced major financial challenges during this time, filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 1994, due to a debt load of more than $300 million that the company owed to its creditors. In an effort to boost its tepid ratings and quell complaints from advocacy organizations such as the National Hispanic Media Coalition that criticized both networks for not featuring content relatable to American Latinos, Telemundo
Telemundo
outlined a new strategy to better compete against Univision
Univision
by increasing production of domestically produced programs. In 1995, under the direction of executive vice president of programming Harry Abraham Castillo, Telemundo
Telemundo
opened its first network studio on the West Coast. Housed at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood, the network began daily production of three shows on the lot that year: La Hora Lunática ("The Crazy Hour"), a daytime talk-variety show hosted by Los Angeles
Los Angeles
radio personality Humberto Luna, comedians Mario Ramírez Reyes "El Comodín" and Hugo Armando, and producer Jackie Torres; El y Ella
El y Ella
("He and She"), a daily talk show focusing on gender-related issues that was created and produced by Gigi Graciette, who co-hosted the program with Antonio Farré; and Dando y Dando ("Giving and Giving"), an audience and viewer participation game show hosted by Rafael Sigler.[10] The first wave of major changes to Telemundo
Telemundo
came on August 11, 1997, when the network revamped its prime time schedule by cutting an hour of its prime time telenovela lineup; concurrently, local newscasts on the network's owned-and-operated and affiliate stations were moved an hour earlier to 10:00 p.m. (or 9:00, depending on the time zone) – placing them directly against late-evening newscasts on Fox, WB, UPN
UPN
and independent stations in many markets – followed by a late-evening national newscast produced by cable news channel CBS Telenoticias; movies were also added during the 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. Eastern time slot on certain weeknights to help bolster its late newscasts.[11] 1997–2001[edit] On November 25, 1997, Liberty Media
Liberty Media
and Sony Pictures
Sony Pictures
Entertainment purchased a majority interest in Telemundo
Telemundo
from Reliance Capital Group for $539 million, beating out a bid made days earlier by an investment group led by Telemundo
Telemundo
Group chairman Leon Black, who had already owned 40.3% of the network through Apollo Global Management and remained a minority partner in Telemundo
Telemundo
Group through the purchase;[12][13] under the deal, Liberty acquired a 40% interest and Sony (which made its entry into domestic broadcasting ownership with the deal) acquired a 35% stake in Telemundo, with the remaining interest held by investment firms Apollo Global Management and Bastion Capital Fund. On November 25, 1997, several investors who held shares in Telemundo
Telemundo
Group filed an injunction to block the sale in a Delaware Chancery Court, in order to investigate whether executives were shortchanging shareholders in accepting the offer; that request, as well as a separate injunction request by Univision
Univision
Communications, were later rejected.[14] After the sale received FCC approval on July 31, 1998,[15] Sony and Liberty formed a holding company that was operated as a 50/50 joint venture between both companies, Telemundo
Telemundo
Communications Group. Helmed by yet another management team under the leadership of former CBS entertainment president Peter Tortorici as president and CEO and Nely Galán as president of entertainment, Telemundo
Telemundo
explored avenues to attract the bilingual market.[16] The network then launched an image campaign using the slogan "Lo mejor de los dos Mundos" ("The Best of Both Worlds"), with several billboard ads being erected in cities such as Miami
Miami
and San Francisco as part of the campaign, heralding a "new era" for Telemundo. Tortorici dramatically overhauled Telemundo's schedule in an effort to boost its viewership among American Spanish language
Spanish language
audiences, as its total audience share had slid from more than 40% early in the decade to less than 20% (and only a 13% share during prime time) by 1998. This "new era" broke from the conventional Spanish-language programming model, the changes made for the 1998–99 lineup included the complete removal of telenovelas from its prime time schedule, citing the inferior quality of the South American serial dramas that it had been acquiring compared to the Mexican serials from Televisa that were carried by Univision.[17] The revamped evening lineup that premiered on September 28, 1998 included several new sitcoms, traditional scripted dramas and game shows with higher production values, including several scripted shows that were remakes of English language series owned by Columbia TriStar Television
Columbia TriStar Television
(now Sony Pictures Television), to position the network as a younger-skewing alternative to Univision
Univision
more acculturated to assimilated American Latinos. Among them were Angeles ("Angels"), a remake of Charlie's Angels; Un Angel en la Casa ("An Angel in the House"), a sitcom loosely based on Who's the Boss?; Solo en America ("Living in America"), a remake of One Day at a Time. Also added to the lineup were updated Spanish language
Spanish language
versions of The Dating Game, The Newlywed Game and Candid Camera; and the police procedural Reyes y Rey ("Kings and King"). The network's existing prime time novelas were relegated to a three-hour block on weekday mornings, while movies were added in prime time on Tuesday and Thursday nights as part of the showcase "Cinemundo", featuring dubbed versions of recent American film releases (many of which were sourced from the Sony movie library).[18] In addition, to better take advantage of the region's pool of writers and directors, Tortorici decided to migrate Telemundo's main base of operations – transferring its programming and management divisions – from Hialeah, Florida
Hialeah, Florida
to a new facility in Santa Monica, California in December of that year, resulting in the hiring or transfer of approximately 45 employees; more than 300 other employees continued to be based at its Hialeah offices.[19] The changes proved to be disastrous as Telemundo's ratings for the overhauled prime time lineup sharply fell by 42% to an 8% audience share among Latino households against the telenovela-dominated lineup programmed by Univision
Univision
(which held a roughly 91% share) in that slot by the February 1999 sweeps period; the network was even forced to air numerous commercials for free as part of contractual makegoods to advertisers, resulting in a loss of more than $1 million in potential revenue.[20] After Tortoricci resigned from the network in July 1999, Telemundo tapped former Universal Television
Universal Television
president Jim McNamara as its president and chief executive officer, and Alan Sokol as chief operating officer to helm its operations.[21] Their programming strategy reverted to a more traditional approach to Spanish-language television than the mainstream concept implemented by Tortoricci. The new team struck a programming agreement with TV Azteca
TV Azteca
for the U.S. rights to the Mexican broadcaster's novelas and other programming, and restored a two-hour block of telenovelas originating from Mexico, Colombia
Colombia
and Brazil
Brazil
– later expanded to three hours with the shift of its late local and national newscasts to the traditional 11:00 (or 10:00) p.m. time slot in 2000 – as part of its Monday through Friday prime time slate which resulted in the cancellation of Angeles and Reyes el Rey. Reality, entertainment and newsmagazine programs were also added to the schedule, while prime time movies were relegated to weekend evenings.[22] In September 1999, Telemundo
Telemundo
began transferring the bulk of its programming and marketing operations from its Santa Monica headquarters and consolidated all operations of the network at its offices in Hialeah. Most of the network's management staff migrated to the Hialeah facility including McNamara, Sokol and Galan, either on a temporary or long-term basis, with most other staff being given the option of either accepting the relocation offer or resigning from the network; some positions based at the Santa Monica facility were eliminated entirely, with around a dozen workers remaining at the West Coast office.[19] During McNamara's tenure, Telemundo
Telemundo
premiered shows such as Laura en América ("Laura in America"), a "conflict talk" show hosted by Peruvian lawyer Laura Bozzo; the telenovelas Yo Soy Betty, La Fea ("Ugly Betty", or literally translated as "I Am Betty, the Ugly"), starring Ana Maria Orozco; and a novela adaptation of the Brazilian comedy film Xica, starring Tais Araujo; A Oscuras Pero Encendidos ("In the Dark, but Turned On"), a talk show hosted by Paul Bouche; a game show Números Rojos ("Red Numbers"), hosted by Wilmer Ramirez; and the Argentine children's program Agrandaditos. It also acquired the rights to broadcast a weekly series from World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) on Saturday nights. The network also entered into a co-production agreement with Columbia TriStar International Television
Columbia TriStar International Television
(now Sony Pictures Television International) to produce original telenovelas for Mexican audiences.[22][23][24] The network also launched Protagonistas ("Protagonists"), a staged, unscripted reality series that followed a group of 16 aspiring actors living together in a Miami
Miami
television studio for several weeks, for the opportunity to win a role on one of the network's telenovelas.[25] 2001–2009[edit]

In the summer of 2001, Sony, Liberty and Reliance announced that they would sell Telemundo
Telemundo
Communications Group. Companies that expressed interest in acquiring the network included Viacom, the Hispanic Broadcasting Corporation, The Walt Disney Company
The Walt Disney Company
and AOL
AOL
Time Warner; NBC
NBC
subsequently entered into negotiations to acquire the network and its related properties.[26][27] On October 11, 2001, NBC
NBC
(which itself would merge with Vivendi Universal a year-and-a-half later to become the present-day NBC Universal) purchased Telemundo
Telemundo
Communications Group from Sony and Liberty Media
Liberty Media
for $1.98 billion (increasing to $2.7 billion by the sale's closure) and the assumption of $700 million in debt, in an equal cash and stock split by NBC
NBC
parent General Electric. Upon the announcement, many media industry experts thought that NBC
NBC
overpaid for Telemundo, given the network's lower Hispanic audience reach (attracting about 20% of all Hispanic viewers in the United States, while Univision
Univision
had a reach of about 80%). Jim McNamara and Alan Sokol remained at the helm of the network after the acquisition was finalized on April 12, 2002.[26][27] Under NBC, Telemundo
Telemundo
brought greater emphasis to original programming and product placement, while the network's owned-and-operated stations in larger markets began producing their own early morning newscasts in an effort to become more competitive in their respective markets; the Telemundo
Telemundo
"T" logo also received an overhaul, replacing the sphere with a curved outline which similarly represented a globe. Telemundo's main competitor, Univision, continued to beat the network in the ratings, although not in all time periods. In 2004, Telemundo Communications Group formed Telemundo
Telemundo
Television Studios (now known as simply Telemundo
Telemundo
Studios) in Miami, as part of its expansion of original programming through the acquisition of RTI Colombia's interest in their joint venture Telemundo-RTI, subsequently signing an agreement to acquire the operational assets of its international distributor, Tepuy International (now Telemundo
Telemundo
International); the network spent $100 million per year on programming producing during the mid-2000s.[2] After the NBC
NBC
Universal merger, Telemundo
Telemundo
ceased importing telenovelas from Latin America
Latin America
and start producing its own dramas, either independently or through co-production arrangements with other production companies. To that end, Telemundo
Telemundo
partnered with Colombian-based producer RTI Colombia
Colombia
and Mexican production company Argos Comunicación. In an effort for its telenovelas – which follow the Mexican model – to be recognized by U.S. and Latin American audiences, Telemundo
Telemundo
hired well-known actors and actresses from Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Argentina
Argentina
and Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico
to star in its dramas; over time, Telemundo
Telemundo
also began to hire American-born Hispanic actors and actresses who are fluent Spanish speakers. In 2005, McNamara retired as CEO of the network; he was replaced by Don Browne, who had previously served as president and general manager of NBC's Miami
Miami
O&O (and WSCV sister station) WTVJ. In March 2007, NBC
NBC
Universal announced that it would restructure Telemundo's entertainment division in an effort to narrow Univision's ratings dominance.[28] The company also announced its intention to sell the original Telemundo
Telemundo
station in Puerto Rico, WKAQ-TV, and Spanish independent station KWHY
KWHY
(channel 22, now a MundoMax affiliate) in Los Angeles
Los Angeles
in order to help finance its acquisition of Oxygen Media. On December 21, 2007, NBC
NBC
Universal announced that it would no longer seek a buyer for WKAQ-TV, indicating that Telemundo Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico
would remain within the NBC
NBC
corporate umbrella.[29] 2011–present[edit] In 2010, Comcast
Comcast
announced that it would acquire a 51% majority stake in NBC
NBC
Universal for $6.5 billion; the deal was completed on January 28, 2011, with Comcast
Comcast
acquiring control of Telemundo
Telemundo
as part of the deal.[30][31][32] In October 2011, Emilio Romano
Emilio Romano
was appointed as president of Telemundo, a role he would handle until his abrupt resignation from the network in October 2013.[33] On May 14, 2012, Telemundo
Telemundo
announced that it would launch a new branding campaign that would include the debut of a new slogan and on-air identity, including the replacement of its framed "T" logo (a variant of the 1992-era design that had been introduced by the network in 1999), with a new logo featuring two partial red spheres forming the "T", described to "capture the duality of Telemundo’s audience, balancing the strong connection to their Latin roots with their contemporary mindset of living in the U.S." The new logo and graphics package debuted on-air on December 8 of that year.[34] Telemundo achieved ratings success during 2012, with the telenovela series Rosa Diamante ("Diamond Rose"; a remake of Enrique Torres' Perla Negra) and the Caracol TV-produced Pablo Escobar. That year, Telemundo
Telemundo
debuted the "social novela" Secreteando on Facebook, with comments made on other social media websites.[35] During the 2000s, Univision
Univision
also lost several key on-air personalities to Telemundo, including longtime weekend news anchor Maria Antonieta Collins (who left to host the morning program Cada Dia), Primer Impacto anchor María Celeste Arrarás
María Celeste Arrarás
(who became the host of a similarly formatted newsmagazine, Al Rojo Vivo) and sports announcers Andrés Cantor (known to many Americans for his exuberant announcement of "Goal!" during football matches[36]) and Norberto Longo. By the middle of the decade, Univision
Univision
overtook UPN
UPN
and The WB
The WB
– which shut down in September 2006 and were replaced by The CW, which Univision also outranks – as the fifth highest-rated network in total viewership; since then, it also sometimes posts higher viewership in the key age demographics of Adults 18–34 and Adults 18–49. Other key on-air personalities that joined Telemundo
Telemundo
from Univision
Univision
or Televisa
Televisa
in the 2000s are Lucero, Pedro Fernandez, Kate del Castillo, Aracely Arámbula, Raúl González, Blanca Soto, Laura Flores, Ana María Canseco, Cristina Saralegui. Continuing the momentum in 2013 were telenovelas La Patrona
La Patrona
("The Return") and El Señor de los Cielos
El Señor de los Cielos
("The Lord of the Skies"),[37] and the musical competition series La Voz Kids
La Voz Kids
("The Voice Kids"; a Spanish language
Spanish language
adaptation of The Voice franchise featuring children as contestants), hosted by Daisy Fuentes
Daisy Fuentes
and Jorge Bernal, featuring musical coaches Paulina Rubio, Prince Royce
Prince Royce
and Roberto Tapia. With the debut of El Señor de los Cielos
El Señor de los Cielos
that spring, Telemundo
Telemundo
also launched the "Super Series" format, a slate of action-oriented telenovelas – which usually air during the final hour of the network's prime time novela block – designed as a reinvention of the genre using the multiple-season continuity model common with English language drama series, shorter episode runs (between 60 and 80 episodes per season, compared to traditional single-season novelas, which produce between 100 and 200 episodes on average) and the incorporation of storylines more relatable to American audiences.[38] These programs helped Telemundo
Telemundo
decrease its ratings gap in the key demographic of Adults 18-49, decreasing the gap between the two networks by 54% between 2010 and 2015, with Telemundo
Telemundo
even beating Univision
Univision
four times during the 2014–2015 television season on nights when the former aired sports events and specials; the network also narrowed the ratings differentials with Univision
Univision
in total prime time viewership from a gap of 1.2 million viewers in July 2013 to 238,000 in July 2015.[38] Telemundo
Telemundo
also began improving its ratings during the 10:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) hour, following its transition from traditional novelas to the "Super Series" format, with El Señor de los Cielos
El Señor de los Cielos
posting some of the network's highest viewership for an entertainment program, when its second-season finale in 2014 drew 3.2 million total viewers.[37] On May 13, 2014, during the network's 2014–15 upfront presentation at Frederick P. Rose Hall
Frederick P. Rose Hall
in New York City, Luis Silberwasser was named president of Telemundo
Telemundo
Network, LLC, maintaining overall responsibilities for the Telemundo
Telemundo
network and production division Telemundo
Telemundo
Studios.[39] On July 21, 2015, Telemundo
Telemundo
beat Univision
Univision
for the first time in a singular-night demographic, averaging 969,000 viewers and a .76 rating in the demographic (26K more viewers and a .2 higher share than the 943K and .74 earned by Univision's prime-time schedule); El Senor de los Cielos 3 ("Lord of the Skies 3") also beat the Televisa-produced novela Yo No Creo En los Hombres ("I Don't Trust Men Anymore") on Univision
Univision
in the demographic during the 10:00 p.m. hour, with a 1.4 rating (over the 0.7 rating earned by Yo No Creo En Hombres) and was the most-watched television program among Adults 18-49 during the hour that evening. For the week of July 20–24, Telemundo
Telemundo
came within 40,000 viewers of beating Univision
Univision
in prime time viewership.[38] Overall, the network ended the 2014–15 season posting its highest average total prime time viewership against Univision
Univision
with 1.46M, a 23% increase in total viewership yearly, compared to Univision's 2.29M and decrease of 21% yearly.[40][41] Programming[edit] Main articles: List of programs broadcast by Telemundo
List of programs broadcast by Telemundo
and List of telenovelas of Telemundo As of 2015[update], Telemundo
Telemundo
operates on a 147½-hour network programming schedule. Its base programming feed provides various types of general entertainment programming weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m., Saturdays from 8:00 to 11:00 a.m. (the first three hours of which are occupied by the children's programming block, MiTelemundo, which features programs compliant with FCC educational programming requirements), and Sundays from 11:00 to 1:00 a.m. Eastern and Pacific Time. A separate block of feature films (and occasionally, other entertainment programs) also airs overnights on Monday through Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5:00 a.m., Thursdays and Fridays from 3:00 to 5:00 a.m., and weekends from 2:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. Eastern and Pacific Time. All remaining time periods are filled with infomercials. While Telemundo's owned-and-operated stations and affiliates largely rely on Telemundo's master schedule to fill their broadcast day, many of its stations also produce their own local programming (which may pre-empt certain programs within the base network schedule), usually in the form of newscasts and public affairs programs (production of local infotainment programming, and leasing of brokered programs such as direct response and religious content, is at the station's discretion). Many Telemundo
Telemundo
stations usually air limited local news programming, which are commonly reserved for early and late evening timeslots on Monday through Friday nights; some Telemundo
Telemundo
stations may also air newscasts on weekday mornings (these are mainly limited to the network's O&Os in larger markets) and/or on weekend evenings. The majority of Telemundo's programming consists of first-run telenovelas and series, many of which are produced by the network itself through its Telemundo Studios unit; however, some shows broadcasts by the network are produced by outside companies (including Caracol Television and Promofilm). Telemundo's schedule does not incorporate situation comedies, although some comedy series have aired on the network in the past, particularly during the 1990s and early 2000s. Variety shows – a common format in Spanish language television in the U.S. and other countries – have had a limited presence on Telemundo's lineup in recent years; with La Voz Kids
La Voz Kids
being the only such show appearing on the network as of July 2013. Two additional variety series debuted in 2015: Si Se Puede, an adaptation of the Armoza Formats celebrity talent competition franchise I Can Do That, and ¡Qué Noche! con Angelica y Raul ("What a Night! with Angelica and Raul"), a family-oriented series using the traditional Saturday evening variety program model that was created to fill part of the void opened up by the cancellation of Univision's Sabado Gigante.[38][42] From 2010 to 2013, Telemundo
Telemundo
utilized an off-time scheduling format for its prime time programming (similar to the "Turner Time" format used by TBS from 1981 to 2000), in which programs that aired weeknights from 8:00 to 11:00 p.m. (Eastern and Pacific Time) started on a three-minute delay – resulting from intentional overruns of the network's 7:00 p.m. program (Caso Cerrado: Edićion Estelar ("Case Closed: Special
Special
Edition")) into the 8:00 p.m. timeslot. As a result, until this format was discontinued, conventional "top-and-bottom" start times were not restored until the evening's final prime time program aired at 10:00 p.m. (Eastern and Pacific), allowing late local newscasts seen on some Telemundo
Telemundo
stations to start at 11:00 p.m. (or 10:00 p.m. in the Central and Mountain Time Zones). Daytime programming on weekdays features a mix of consisting of repeats of past Telemundo-produced telenovelas and acquired serials (which are re-edited as extended 90-minute and two-hour episodes) during the late morning and early afternoon hours, while newsmagazine, reality and court series (such as Caso Cerrado ("Case Closed") and Suelta La Sopa ("Tell Me What You Know")[43]) making up its afternoon programming. The network also regularly airs Spanish-dubbed English-language films (primarily those produced by American film studios such as Universal Pictures, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and Sony Pictures
Sony Pictures
Entertainment) that make up much of the network's weekend afternoon and prime time lineup, as well as films natively produced in Spanish (imported from various Latin American countries) that it usually airs daily during the overnight hours; the network also airs films in place of regularly scheduled programming on select national holidays (such as Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving
and Christmas). English subtitles[edit]

provides English subtitles via closed captioning primarily on weekdays from 7:00 to 11:00 p.m. Eastern and Pacific Time, during the network's prime time lineup. The subtitles are transmitted over the CC3 caption channel in standard definition and the CS2 caption channel available on most digital tuners in high definition. The network produces the translations in-house, and intends them to attract Hispanic viewers who may not be fluent in Spanish as well as other non-Spanish speakers.[44][45] Programs that include English captions are identified on-air by a special digital on-screen graphic seen at the start of each episode, denoting the specific caption channels in which viewers can receive subtitles in either Spanish or English (see right). Telemundo
Telemundo
was the first Spanish-language network in the United States to incorporate English captions during its programming, beginning with the premieres of La Cenicienta ("Cinderella") and Amor Descarado ("Barefaced Love") on September 8, 2003;[45] this generated a small, loyal fan base among English-speaking viewers.[46] The subtitles were briefly discontinued without notice on October 14, 2008, citing budget cuts made by NBC
NBC
Universal and the network's switch from analog to digital broadcasts; representatives for Telemundo
Telemundo
also cited the need to concentrate resources on its core Spanish-speaking audience. However, the network soon reversed its decision due to demand by viewers in favor of the English subtitles,[46] which returned on all prime time novelas on March 30, 2009. The use of English captions was later adopted by Univision, which began airing them on its evening programming (primarily with its weeknight telenovelas, along with select weekend prime time series) on January 30, 2012, and (in the same manner as Telemundo) transmits them over the CC3 caption channel;[45] Azteca also transmits English language captions on certain programs. Programs that include English-language captions during their original broadcast may also include them in repeat broadcasts airing outside of the network's prime time schedule after the program's original run on the network or, since 2012, as part of the network's late-night novela repeat block. Some programs (notably the defunct long-running erotic anthology Decisiones
Decisiones
("Decisions"), which the network now airs only in reruns), only include English captions in certain episodes, depending on when they were produced. Programs that use English captions are primarily consist of telenovelas, though a few shows outside the genre (such as the prime time court show Caso Cerrado: Edición Especial) are also transcribed in both languages. Availability of English subtitles is limited to the technical capacity of the local station, cable or satellite provider, or other outlet to disseminate them over the network feed. News programming[edit] Main article: Noticias Telemundo The network operates a news division, Noticias Telemundo ("Telemundo News"), which produces a half-hour early evening flagship newscast, Noticiero Telemundo, that has aired daily for most of its run ( Telemundo
Telemundo
also produced a secondary newscast, Noticiero Telemundo Internacional, until 2011, which aired in place of late local newscasts on affiliates without their own news department or which opted to preempt regularly scheduled local newscasts on certain holidays). It also produces the morning news and lifestyle program Un Nuevo Día ("A New Day"), the late afternoon newsmagazine series Al Rojo Vivo con Maria Celeste ("Red Hot Live with Maria Celeste") and the Sunday morning talk show Enfoque ("In Focus"); the network previously produced weekend editions of Al Rojo Vivo and Noticiero Telemundo
Telemundo
until 2007, which were replaced with feature films and reality-based series; the latter returned to a daily broadcast with the restoration of Saturday and Sunday editions on September 4, 2014. The beginnings of the news division trace back to 1987, when the network debuted its first news program Noticiero Telemundo-HBC ("Telemundo-HBC News"), through an outsourcing agreement with the Miami-based Hispanic-American Broadcasting Corporation. The following year, Telemundo
Telemundo
outsourced news production to CNN, which produced Noticiero Telemundo
Noticiero Telemundo
CNN
CNN
(" Telemundo

Univision
in Miami, Chilean former Miss Universe Cecilia Bolocco
Cecilia Bolocco
joined Gestoso on the Telemundo
Telemundo
newscast. The final incarnation produced in Atlanta
Atlanta
was co-anchored by Patricia Janiot. Following the sale of its cable news channel Telenoticias to CBS
CBS
Cable in late 1996, Telemundo
Telemundo
entered into a content partnership with the channel to produce early-evening and prime time newscasts that would air on the broadcast network. Former CBS News
CBS News
vice president Joe Peyronnin founded Telemundo's news division in 1999 and served as its executive vice president until 2006. Additional news programs were created in the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks: Hoy en el Mundo ("Today in the World") on ABC News, anchored by Marian de la Fuente and Jose Diaz-Balart, debuted to inform viewers of national and international events. This program and its companion show En la Madrugada ("In Early Morning") were cancelled due to the much heralded arrival of Maria Antonieta Collins from Univision. Cada Dia with Maria Antonieta ("Every Day with Maria Antonieta") replaced these shows in September 2006; Collins continued to host the program along with the much recycled Diaz-Balart – who anchored the network's morning news program Noticiero Telemundo: Madrugada (" Telemundo
Telemundo
News: Early Morning"), later to be anchored by Ana Patricia Candiani – as co-host. Cada Dia was cancelled in May 2008, after Collins announced that she would leave Telemundo
Telemundo
when her contract expired in August of that year return to news anchoring and as a result of low ratings for the program;[48] it was replaced by a new morning show called ¡Levántate! ("Get Up"), another hybrid news and lifestyle format, which was broadcast out of the studios of WKAQ-TV, and initially produced by Telemundo
Telemundo
Puerto Rico. The hybrid program, which was retitled Un Nuevo Día
Un Nuevo Día
in July 2012, originally included local participation of the network's Miami owned-and-operated station WSCV from its studios in the suburb of Miramar, Florida, and bureaus located in New York City, Los Angeles and Mexico City. The show was later revamped, dropping the local cut-ins and relocating its production operations to Telemundo's headquarters in Hialeah, Florida
Hialeah, Florida
in February 2011.[49][50][51] Sports[edit] Main article: Telemundo

Telemundo
and NBC

Winter Olympic Games
and Spanish play-by-rights to association football matches from the Premier League. The network also produces Boxeo Telemundo, a weekly late-night boxing series that airs on most Friday nights (except during the summer) showcasing fights from up-and-coming boxing talents. In 2014, Deportes Telemundo
Telemundo
acquired the Spanish language

rights to broadcast the FIFA
FIFA
Men's and Women's World Cup for a reported $600 million. The deal, which began with the 2015 Women's World Cup and runs through 2026, includes rights to associated FIFA-sanctioned tournaments (including the FIFA
FIFA
U-17 and U-20 World Cups, and the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup), which will be telecast on Telemundo
Telemundo
and NBC Universo.[38][39] In addition, the division also produces three weekly sports-related talk and magazine programs for Telemundo: flagship sports highlight/discussion program Titulares Telemundo
Telemundo
("Telemundo Headlines"), which airs on Saturday and Sunday evenings (and is offered to Telemundo
Telemundo
stations on a half-hour tape delay to accommodate local late-evening newscasts); the male-oriented Sunday afternoon sports/lifestyle program Ritmo Deportivo ("Rhythm Sports"; which debuted in 2003, and briefly aired on Saturdays from September 2013 to April 2015); and the late-night sports talk show Titulares y Mas ("Headlines and More"; which originally aired on Thursday and Friday nights until 2014, when it expanded into a five-night-a-week broadcast). Children's programming[edit] Main articles: Qubo
Qubo
and NBC
NBC
Kids For much of its history, the bulk of NetSpan/Telemundo's children's programming has been derived of mainly live-action and animated programming from American and international producers, with most consisting of dubbed versions of series natively produced in English. In September 1995, Telemundo
Telemundo
launched a Saturday morning program block, Telemundo
Telemundo
Infantil (" Telemundo
Telemundo
Kids"), which was developed via input from viewers on what they wanted to be featured in a children's show.[10] On September 15, 1998, Telemundo
Telemundo
entered into a programming agreement with Nickelodeon
Nickelodeon
to carry the cable channel's programming as part of a morning children's program block, " Nickelodeon
Nickelodeon
en Telemundo" (" Nickelodeon
Nickelodeon
on Telemundo"). The block, which debuted on November 9, 1998, consisted of Spanish dubs of Nickelodeon's animated series aimed at older children and preschool-oriented programs aired by the channel's Nick Jr. block (such as Rugrats, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, Hey Arnold!, Rocko's Modern Life
Rocko's Modern Life
and Blue's Clues); the block ran on weekdays until September 5, 2000, when it was relegated to Saturday and Sunday mornings in order to make room for Hoy En El Mundo (lit. "Today in the World" or "In the World Today"); Nickelodeon's contract with Telemundo
Telemundo
ended in November 2001, following the network's acquisition by NBC.[53][54] In 2005, Telemundo
Telemundo
launched a weekend morning block called "Telemundo Kids". The two most watched shows were Dora The Explorer
Dora The Explorer
and Jacob Two-Two. Both of these shows were very popular. This also marks the first time the first time that both of these 2 shows were dubbed in Spanish, and the first time that Jacob Two-Two aired in the United States. The block lasted until September 16, 2006. However, out of all the shows that aired in the Telemundo
Telemundo
Kids block, Jacob Two-Two continued to air on Telemundo
Telemundo
(it was just transferred to the Qubo block). On September 16, 2006, Telemundo
Telemundo
debuted a weekend morning block aimed at younger children as part of the Qubo
Qubo
endeavor, which was formed through a partnership between NBC
NBC
Universal, Ion Media Networks, Teletoon, Nelvana, Scholastic Media, Classic Media
Classic Media
and its subsidiary Big Idea Productions. It felt a little bit similar to the Telemundo Kids block since Jacob Two-Two also aired on the Qubo
Qubo
block. The Qubo block featured Spanish dubs of programs seen on its companion blocks on NBC, Ion Television, and its companion 24/7 network (alternatively known as Qubo
Qubo
Channel), with Telemundo's Qubo
Qubo
block airing on Saturday and Sunday mornings in 90-minute blocks.[55] On March 28, 2012, NBCUniversal
NBCUniversal
announced an agreement with sister cable channel PBS Kids Sprout (now Sprout, which was integrated into NBCUniversal
NBCUniversal
through its 2011 acquisition by the channel's existing part-owner Comcast) to produce and program new weekend morning preschool blocks for NBC
NBC
and Telemundo. The block, MiTelemundo, premiered on July 7, 2012 and also airs Saturday and Sunday mornings; as with its predecessors, it consists of Spanish dubbed versions of programs seen on its sister broadcast network's Saturday morning block, NBC
NBC
Kids, which debuted on the same date.[56][57][58][59][60] With NBC

Kids block initially remained on MiTelemundo, Litton would ultimately start providing Spanish-language programming for Telemundo
Telemundo
as well starting on January 6, 2018, coinciding with the move to airing the block solely on Saturdays, retaining the Mi Telemundo
Telemundo
name.[61][62] Specials[edit] Telemundo

Billboard Music Awards
honoring songs from Latin music artists during the previous year that are chosen by viewer voting.[69] In 2012, the network also debuted Premios Tu Mundo ("Your World Awards"), a viewer-decided awards show honoring the achievements of Hispanics and Latinos in media, maintaining a format similar to the People's Choice Awards
People's Choice Awards
with categories pertaining to television, film, music, fashion and sports.[70][71] In October 2015, through a licensing agreement with Dick Clark Productions signed in July 2014, Telemundo

affiliate has not yet upgraded their transmission equipment to allow content to be presented in HD. Telemundo
Telemundo
became the first national Spanish-language broadcaster in the U.S. to provide its prime time programming in high definition through the network and its local stations (nine years after the major English language broadcast networks began their conversion to HD) with the launch of its simulcast feed, Telemundo
Telemundo
HD, on April 23, 2009, with that year's edition of the Billboard Latin Music Awards as its inaugural HD broadcast. Concurrently, Telemundo's owned-and-operated television stations in nine markets (New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, San Francisco, Houston, Miami, Las Vegas, and San Juan) became the first to begin broadcasting the network's programming in HD; the remaining O&Os upgraded their digital signals to allow the transmission of high definition content over the next twelve months, while its affiliated stations gradually followed suit over a four-year period. The network's scripted prime time telenovelas became the first regularly scheduled Telemundo

shows to upgrade to the format, beginning with Mas Sabe El Diablo ("Falling Angel"), which premiered in September 2009.[87] All of the network's first-run entertainment and sports programming, as well as specials and select acquired programs, have been presented in HD since 2012 (with the current exception of archived programs that were made prior to 2009 – such as dubbed versions of Criss Angel Mindfreak and World's Most Amazing Videos
World's Most Amazing Videos
("Videos Más Asombrosos del Mundo") – and were originally produced in 4:3 standard definition, as well as most older Mexican-produced feature films). The weekend morning Mi Telemundo

E/I block has also been broadcast in HD since its debut in July 2012. As of September 1, 2016, Telemundo, along with its competitor, Univision, has not have its presentation converted to a 16:9 presentation (except for sports events), and continues to broadcast in a 4:3 presentation. On October 27, 2016, Al Rojo Vivo became the first program to be presented in a 16:9 format, beginning Telemundo's transition to such presentation. Controversies[edit] SAG-AFTRA[edit] On February 9, 2016, NBC
NBC
Universal, Telemundo's parent company, faced claims by SAG-AFTRA
SAG-AFTRA
of operating under a double standard between its Spanish-language and English-language talent at NBC
NBC
and Telemundo. In their response, the network released a statement claiming they are “committed to making Telemundo
Telemundo
a great place to work for our employees and will continue to invest in them to ensure their salaries and working conditions are competitive with the rest of the broadcasting industry in accordance with market size and station revenues.” A few days later on February 13, 2016 SAG-AFTRA
SAG-AFTRA
came back and added that Telemundo
Telemundo
had been treating its employees like “second-class professionals” given that many actors do not receive basic workplace guarantees that SAG-AFTRA
SAG-AFTRA
contracts provide, such as fair pay, water breaks, health insurance and residuals. At that time, Telemundo president Luis Silberwasser responded saying that SAG-AFTRA
SAG-AFTRA
asked for recognition of the union as the bargaining agent for employees — rather than seeking a vote by employees. However, SAG-AFTRA
SAG-AFTRA
claimed that intimidation tactics had been taking place within the network to keep employees from unionizing and that they believe “there is no such thing as a ‘fair vote’ when workers are afraid for their careers and livelihoods, and live with the fear of retaliation if they are seen as actively wanting to unionize. SAG-AFTRA
SAG-AFTRA
wants to ensure full protection for workplace democracy and performers’ rights to choose through a truly fair process.”[88] In August 2016, Telemundo
Telemundo
once again found itself up against the union when the network refused to air an ad placed by SAG-AFTRA
SAG-AFTRA
detailing the unfair wage gap and lack of benefits Telemundo
Telemundo
employees face as opposed to unionized performers at NBCUniversal. The ad was set to air during the network’s premiere people’s choice awards Premios Tu Mundo but was never placed into rotation. A Telemundo
Telemundo
spokesperson responded saying, “After legal review, we have concluded the ad did not pass legal standards for issue-based advertisement.” Meanwhile, other Spanish-language networks such as MegaTV and Estrella TV
Estrella TV
aired the ad nationwide.[89] SAG-AFTRA
SAG-AFTRA
continued to stand its ground, stating that "Telemundo's decision to censor 30 seconds of truthful commentary about its working conditions shows just how averse it is to having a transparent discussion about its refusal to fairly compensate Spanish-speaking performers."[89] 2016 presidential election[edit] On May 28, 2016, filmmaker Andrew Marcus caught a cameraman from Telemundo
Telemundo
filming a #NeverTrump protest in San Diego. According to the filmmaker, the protest was staged. L. Brent Bozell III, the president of Media Research Center
Media Research Center
responded by demanding Telemundo
Telemundo
to apologize to Donald Trump
Donald Trump
and to fire the crew involved with the incident. Meanwhile, Ken Oliver-Méndez, the director of MRC Latino, described that the incident as a "self-inflicted wound on Telemundo's credibility." Telemundo
Telemundo
responded to Oliver-Méndez by claiming that "the integrity of the broadcast was not compromised since the material was not used by the Network news team." Telemundo
Telemundo
also claimed that the network is "known for its balance and accuracy,” and that it “did not, nor would it ask any full-time or temporary worker to stage events.”[90][91] International broadcasts[edit] Mexico[edit] Telemundo
Telemundo
programming is available in Mexico through affiliates in markets located within proximity to the Mexico– United States

border (such as owned-and-operated stations KHRR/Tucson, Arizona

and KTLM/Rio Grande City; and affiliates KESE-LP-KECY-DT4/Yuma, KTDO/El Paso, KNSD/San Diego, and KGNS-DT3/Laredo), whose signals are readily receivable over-the-air in border areas of northern Mexico. On March 18, 2008, Grupo Televisa
Televisa
and NBC
NBC
Universal announced a ten-year multiplatform agreement that would allow 1,000 hours of Telemundo
Telemundo
programming, including news; entertainment; specials and sports, to be broadcast over both Televisa's free-to-air channels, as well as its co-owned cable provider SKY México
SKY México
starting that April. The deal also included plans to launch a Telemundo
Telemundo
channel that would be operated as a joint venture between both companies; the Mexican cable-satellite version of the network launched in August 2009. NBC Universal had considered launching a Mexican version of Telemundo
Telemundo
as early as 2005, which led to a legal battle between it and TV Azteca over allegations that Azteca "engaged in the wrongful use of force" to shut down production of the Telemundo-produced reality singing competition series Quinceañera: Mama Quiero Ser Artista ("Sweet 15: Mom, I Want to Be an Artist") in Mexico and a news story featured on an Azteca news program that accused then- NBC
NBC
Universal parent General Electric and Grupo Casa Saba of fraud and corporate corruption with the intent to torpedo the approval of a license application by Telemundo

and Grupo Xtra to operate a television network in Mexico.[92][93] See also[edit]
