In his first big reorganizational move since taking over as President of Telemundo Network in August of 2014, Luis Silberwasser today announced several changes among the executive ranks. Among them, he has named Luis Carlos Vélez to Executive Vice President of Network News, reporting directly to him.

He takes over the news department leadership role from Alina Falcón, who was named EVP of Network Sports, Research and Integration for Telemundo Network, also reporting to Silberwasser.

In his new role, Vélez will oversee the network news operations and be responsible for editorial direction, programming and production of all news properties, including nightly newscast “Noticiero Telemundo,” Sunday news program “Enfoque con José Diaz-Balart, morning show “Un Nuevo Día,” and daily news magazine “Al Rojo Vivo,” as well as other related network news programming, breaking news and specials.

He’ll also play a key role in strengthening the collaborations with Telemundo’s owned and operated stations.

Prior to joining Telemundo, Vélez was Anchor and News Director in Caracol Television in Colombia. In that role he supervised all editorial content for Caracol News across its multimedia platforms.

He was previously an anchor and reporter for CNN International based in New York and an anchor for CNN en Español.

Falcón will now decide sports programming strategy for Telemundo network, working closely with Eli Velázquez, recently appointed EVP, Sports, Hispanic Enterprises and Content.

Claudia Foghini rejoins the network team as SVP of Production Strategy, Management and Services, but will continue her current duties at Telemundo Studios, where she has been since 2013.

As part of the changes, Silberwasser is consolidating on-air and off-air creative departments into a single Marketing and Creative group reporting to Aileen Angulo and placing the Specials Group, under Pilar Lamadrid, within the Programming team. Both department heads will report to Jesús Torres Viera.

According to the Telemundo president, “these changes will add depth to our leadership team and better position us to leverage our strengths for success.”

Below is the email sent out to staff announcing the changes:

Subject: Management Announcements at Telemundo Network

I want to share with you some important management and structural changes at the Telemundo Network, all of which are effective today.

Over the last five months, since my arrival at Telemundo, I have spent a great deal of time working with the team, analyzing the strengths and opportunities we face as we look to take Telemundo to new heights.   In order to strengthen our capabilities, as well as to have a leaner and more efficient structure fueled by new ideas and innovation, we are implementing the following changes:

1. Alina Falcon is being named Executive Vice President — Network Sports, Research and Integration for Telemundo Network, continuing to report directly to me.

a. In this new role, Alina will be the executive in charge at the network for Sports programming.  She will lead the network’s creative, editorial, and scheduling strategies for our sports properties, and will work closely with Eli Velazquez to ensure that the network reflects the quality standards that NBC Sports and Deportes Telemundo are known for. Additionally, Alina will be responsible for leveraging the FIFA World Cup properties across the entire Telemundo Network to maximize their promotion power for the rest of our schedule.  Alina brings to this new role a wealth of expertise and knowledge in sports broadcasting, having had oversight for Sports programming, including the FIFA World Cup tournaments, during her tenure at Univision.

b. Effective today, Alina will also assume oversight of the Research department.  She will work with NBCU’s research teams to develop and implement best practices, processes, and structures that will strengthen the Network’s capabilities in audience research and insights.  Importantly, Alina will work closely with NBC Universo and our digital platforms to jointly determine what research resources should be dedicated to each of the businesses.   As a result of this change, Millie Carrasquillo will leave the company to pursue other interests.  Millie is a true professional and has been a passionate and committed Telemundo executive for many years.  We deeply thank her for her hard work and dedication and wish her much success in her future projects.

c. Partnering and leveraging the strengths of the entire NBCU portfolio and the Telemundo Stations is a key priority for the Network.  Therefore, Alina will be the point person to execute network-wide initiatives across all departments, including Symphony and other initiatives that involve coordinating Telemundo Network with other NBCUniversal and Comcast properties and local stations.   She will support Jackie Hernandez and Alfredo Richard at Hispanic Enterprises and Content, as well as Manuel Martinez at the Station Group to execute these kinds of broader initiatives across the network.

2. I am also very pleased to name Luis Carlos Velez as Executive Vice President — Telemundo News, reporting directly to me.   Luis Carlos will oversee all our network news operations and be responsible for editorial direction, programming, and production of our news properties including all our newscasts, “Al Rojo Vivo” and “Un Nuevo Dia.”  The Specials Group under Pilar Lamadrid will now join the Programming team headed by Jesus Torres Viera.  Building on the record performance of Telemundo’s news in 2014, Luis Carlos will be charged with infusing innovation and best practices to accelerate our growth, while strengthening the synergies with Telemundo’s owned and operated stations, as well as with the team and properties at NBC News.  Luis Carlos comes to Telemundo with an impressive track record as a journalist, news anchor, and most recently as News Director in Caracol Television in Colombia.  In that role, he supervised all editorial content for Caracol News across its multimedia platforms, leading a team of more than 150 journalists.  Under his leadership Noticias Caracol became Colombia´s TV news leader reaching its highest ratings since its launch in 1998.  Prior to that, Luis Carlos was an anchor and reporter for CNN International based in New York and an anchor for CNN en Español.  Please join me in welcoming Luis Carlos to the Telemundo family.

3. I am consolidating our separate on-air and off-air creative departments into a single Marketing and Creative group reporting to Aileen Angulo.  My goal with this change is to have a unified creative and marketing vision for the network, innovate our go-to-market strategies, and run a more efficient group to serve all network departments.    Aileen will continue to report to Jesus Torres Viera in the Network Programming group.   Separately, Susan Solano-Vila, who was previously heading the off-air and branding group, will continue to report to me leading key network projects.  Specifically, she will be responsible for creating and executing the 2015/16 Upfront presentation in NYC, as well as overseeing and completing the next evolution of Telemundo’s Brand strategy and look, which is currently under way.

4. Lastly, Claudia Foghini will now join the Network management team, reporting to me as Senior Vice President of Production Strategy, Management and Services.  She will continue her current duties at Telemundo Studios, but will now oversee production management of third party productions for the network.   The objective with this change is to strengthen the network’s capabilities in the production management area, improving our execution and cost control skills.   Claudia’s expertise and ability to manage talent, outside production companies, and to leverage her internal relationships with legal, technical and engineering groups has greatly benefited the Studios.  We now look forward to bringing this kind of impact to the rest of Network projects.

As we face an exciting year at the Network, these changes will add depth to our leadership team and better position us to leverage our strengths for success.  The Telemundo Network has a great opportunity to truly materialize the growth potential it represents for our company. In the few months I have been here, I have seen the incredible creativity and passion of all our employees.  This is what distinguishes Telemundo and is the engine of ideas that will move this network forward.  Your dedication and commitment, together with a clear strategy and a revitalized management team, will surely allow us to continue to grow and deliver against our short and long term goals.

Telemundo Deportes EVP Jorge Hidalgo leaves the company as part of restructuring of the sports division.

Jorge Hidalgo is no longer Executive Vice President of Telemundo Deportes. His position has been eliminated.

As of today, Eli Velázquez has been promoted to the newly created position of Executive Vice President, Sports, Hispanic Enterprises and Content.

Velázquez will report directly to Joe Uva, chairman, NBCU’s Hispanic Enterprises and Content and Gary Zenkel, President, NBC Olympics and Operations, Strategy, NBC Sports Group.

In his new role,Velázquez will be responsible for leading sports production and coordinating resources between Telemundo’s existing production capabilities and NBC Sports, delivering sports content to Telemundo, NBC Universo and the company’s digital platforms.

Velázquez was previously promoted to SVP Sports in 2014, overseeing all sports programming and operations for Telemundo.

Before that, he was VP of Sports since 2008. He joined Telemundo as a producer for “Boxeo Telemundo” in 1999.

Eli Velazquez

As EVP Sports, Hispanic Enterprises and Content, Velázquez will oversee over 700 hours of sports programming for Telemundo and the upcoming NBC Universo.

In an email sent out to staff, Uva announced the reorganization of the sports division as part of the plan “to get our company World Cup-ready.”

Given Telemundo’s acquisition of the Spanish-language rights to the FIFA World Cup, BPL, NFL and NASCAR, Uva stressed “sports programming has become a very important priority for our division” that required restructuring and expansion of the company’s “sports production capabilities.”

Under the new structure, Telemundo will be aligned closer to NBC Sports to leverage their production resources, media rights management, best practices and expertise.

According to the email, Hidalgo will be helping during the transition period.

Hidalgo joined Telemundo in February 1999 as VP of Sports. He was previously sports director for Univision Network.

Here’s the staff email:

Sent: Tuesday, January 13, 2015 12:20 PM
Subject: Sports Announcement

As you know, with the acquisition of the Spanish-language rights to the FIFA World Cup, BPL, NFL and NASCAR over the last couple years, sports programming has become a very important priority for our division. In fact, in 2015 we will have over 700 hours of additional sports content across our platforms, and that number will grow significantly as we approach 2018 and the FIFA World Cup. In order to meet this growing demand for sports content and better serve all of our businesses across Hispanic Enterprises and Content, we have decided to restructure and expand our current sports production capabilities. Under this new structure, we will align ourselves closer to NBC Sports to leverage their production resources, media rights management, best practices and expertise as one of the leading sports broadcasters in the world.

Consequently, today we are promoting Eli Velázquez to a new role as Executive Vice President, Sports, Hispanic Enterprises and Content, reporting directly to me and Gary Zenkel, President, NBC Olympics and Operations, Strategy, NBC Sports Group. In his new role, Eli will be responsible for leading sports production and coordinating resources between our existing production capabilities and NBC Sports, to make sure the Telemundo Network, NBC Universo and our digital platforms are provided the high-quality sports content they need.

As a result of this reorganization, Jorge Hidalgo, Executive Vice President of Telemundo Sports, will leave the company to pursue other interests. He will be with us during a transition period. I want to thank Jorge for all his dedication and commitment to Telemundo and wish him the best in his new projects. He has built one of the best sports teams in the industry and leaves us with a great foundation to continue building into the future.

In closer alignment with NBC Sports and serving the needs of the different Hispanic brands across our division, this new structure will allow us to take advantage of the company’s long-standing storytelling tradition to engage the US Hispanic audience with relevant, bold and distinctive sports content that will bring them closer to their favorite athletes and teams across multiple sports.

As I have said before, our number one priority is to get our company World Cup-ready. This reorganization is another step in that direction and better positions us to meet our increased content needs in the short and long term. With the 2015 FIFA World Cup events and NASCAR coverage about to start, and only a few weeks away from the launch of NBC Universo and its broadcast of Super Bowl XLIX, I am confident that this new structure, together with your professionalism, expertise and commitment, will solidify our position in the market as a true “sports powerhouse” for years to come.

Paulina Rubio and Telemundo reach out of court settlement

Paulina Rubio and Telemundo reach out of court settlement

Paulina Rubio

Paulina Rubio was a coach and judge on season one of Telemundo’s “La Voz Kids.”

Singer and actress Paulina Rubio and Telemundo Network have settled a breach of contract lawsuit out of court.

The singer filed a lawsuit against Telemundo in January of this year alleging the network reneged on its agreement to pay her $1.3 million to return as a coach for the second season of “La Voz Kids” and replaced her with “less expensive talent.”

In court papers, “La Chica Dorada” alleged that Telemundo backed out of the contract using scheduling concerns as a “pretext.” At the time, Paulina was also appearing as a judge on Fox’s “The X Factor.”

But Telemundo claimed they were clear that she had to be available to perform on “La Voz Kids” from May 12 through June 7, 2014. The network’s lawyers stated in court papers that she refused to commit working during that specific period.

Attorneys for the singer in the case of PAULINA RUBIO DOSAMANTES ET AL VS TELEMUNDO MEDIA ET AL filed a Notice of Settlement of Entire Case on Nov. 25, 2014.

None of the attorneys would comment on the settlement.
