Univision announced today Alina Falcón is no longer President of News for Univision. In a press release, the company said she had “decided to leave her current position leading news,” to “consult on special projects.” She had been with Univision for 26 years.
In 2005, she was promoted to Executive Vice President and Operating Manager of Univision Networks, after holding that same position at sister network Telefutura the previous year. In March of this year, during a management shuffle at the company, her role was downsized from EVP and Operating Manager to the newly created position of News President for Univision. In that role she was overseeing news and sports programming across Univision networks.
Isaac Lee has been named President of News, replacing Alina. Based in Miami, he’ll be responsible for leading the company’s news division, including strategic and editorial oversight of programming and production across the Univision Networks, Univision Local Media and Univision Interactive Media.
Isaac was most recently Editor-in-Chief of Poder magazine. The bulk of his professional experience is as a magazine editor for several publications since the late 1990’s.
Univision also announced that Alexander “Sandy” Brown has been named President of Sports, overseeing sports programming across the company’s platforms. Prior to his Univision appointment, he was CEO of media representation firm Petry Holding. He’ll be based in New York.
