    What I have noticed is that a lot of the talent that univision is hiring is coming from Televisa. It is rarely seen local talent being hired here. I mean it’s great that opportunities are being opened from people outside the country but isn’t there enough talent within the US for these positions?

    I think the problem is not the lack of talent but SSL(Spanish as a second langauge). If your born and raised in Houston or Texas for that matter, your Spanish will not be as good as a person born in a Spanish speaking country. The audience wants to hear an authentic sounding Spanish speaker. That’s my take.

      Mike, my only concern when they bring talent from other countries like Mexico is their ability to understand and speak English. How are they going to communicate when they need to interview a politician who doesn’t speak Spanish or a press conference? How would they interview a president? The lack of english might lead to bad reporting or missing the facts. Maria Elena Salinas is from Los Angeles, CA and she’s fully bilingual. My take on that situation is that managers are bringing their friends. Some of those positions were never open to the public.
