CNET en Español, which debuts tomorrow Thursday, will launch a weekly magazine show in October that will feature technology news with an “entertaining” twist.
Mónica Fonseca and Raúl García have signed on as talent for the yet unnamed show, which will be produced by LatinWE and supervised by CNET en Español.
Mónica is a journalist and blogger, most recently co-host of V-me’s “Show Business Extra.” She has also worked for Caracol Radio, Noticias RCN and NTN 24 Television, where she created a science and technology segment.
Raúl was most recently a producer/talent for Hola TV! He was previously a producer/reporter for Univision and Telefutura. Before that, he was a reporter/weekend anchor at WGBO-66, Univision Chicago.
Additionally, CNET has announced the following hires:
Gabby Medecki, Director. She was most recently working for KRON-4’s digital department and previously held marketing roles at multiple media companies and agencies.
Marta Franco, Producer. A writer and video producer, she has developed multimedia stories for Mission Local, a hyper-local news site in San Francisco’s Mission District.
Erica Argueta, Associate Producer. Past experience includes jobs as a multimedia journalist for KION-TV in Salinas; reporter for KYMA-TV in El Centro, and production assistant at KPIX-TV in San Francisco.
Last week, CNET-E announced it had hired Vanessa Hand Orellana as Senior Editor and On-camera Talent.
Gabriel Sama was named Managing Editor of the new venture in August, overseeing all editorial aspects of CNET en Español.
