“Edición Digital” is touted as the first newscast conceived, designed and produced for simulcast on digital platforms and live broadcast television.

The new 30-minute midday newscasts, which aim to take a hyper-localized approach to news coverage, will air immediately following “Noticiero Univision Digital, Edición Digital” at at 12:30 p.m. ET/PT (11:30 a.m. CT).

    Another Hit and miss for univision. They dont have people create content and now the put another newscast. A couple of talking heads, No live shots and last night packages, what a winning formula

    Asi es ..el noticiero nacional de la noche de Univision..ha bajado muchisimo de calidad..los in house de reportajes de Vilma Tarasona..estan muy mediocres…y los de Gallo Arellano… parece que estamos viendo un noticiero local de un mercado sin recursos…
    …y algunos reportajes de las afiliadas dan lastima….es una pena como se ha desplomado el periodismo de Univision…esta demaciada colombianizada…RCN en colombia hace mejor trabajo……al menos cuando los cubanos controlaban Univision y los Mexicanos estaba mucho mejor que ahora..
