Univision stations in Chicago and San Antonio are launching “Edición Digital” local midday newscasts on Monday, June 26.
Merging television, radio, digital and social media platforms, the hyper-localized, 30-minute newscasts are broadcast and streamed live.
Diana Perez and Enrique Rodríguez will lead “Edición Digital: Chicago.”
As he moves to his new role, Rodríguez will no longer anchor weekends. A weekend anchor replacement will be announced soon.
Brenda Jimenez and Prissila Sanchez will host “Edición Digital: San Antonio.”
In both cities, the newscast, which will air Monday through Friday from 11:30 am to 12:00 pm local time, will collaborate with personalities from Univision’s local radio and digital properties.
The local noon newscasts are modeled after the network’s “Noticiero Univision Edición Digital,” which premiered September 12, 2016.
Local versions of “Edición Digital” were launched earlier this year in California, Dallas, Miami, New York and Houston.
