Univision’s programming and special events department have been combined into one unit that will now be called the Entertainment Group.
Lourdes Diaz, named President of Entertainment in October of 2016, will oversee the combined department.
As part of the restructuring, several positions were eliminated, including that of Univision veteran Sandra Smester, EVP of Programming since 2015.
The positions of longtime Univision staffers Tony Miro, Senior Director of Programming Administration and Sara Millán, a network Production Manager, were also eliminated.
A source indicated at least a dozen employees lost their jobs. A company spokesperson would not confirm the number of layoffs.
