Esteban Creste, news director of Telemundo’s Chicago station, was promoted from news director to VP of News.
Esteban tells me he’s thrilled with the promotion. “We all like our efforts to be recognized,” he tells me. “Just like many of my colleagues who love this profession, I put in many hours a day, all my energy, attention and creativity. Perhaps the promotion is the fruit of my dedication.”
Esteban points out that in his three and a half year tenure as news director in Chicago, he has overseen the expansion of news programming from 5 to 9 and a half hours a week.
Before moving to Chicago, Esteban worked as a reporter and managing editor for Telemundo 47 in NYC. He was previously a reporter at El Diario la Prensa and weekend news editor for WADO radio in New York.
