07 de agosto de 2020
NBC News and Noticias Telemundo started collaborating on reports airing on both networks, since last Thursday. The announcement was made by Noah Oppenheim, NBC News president, and Luis Fernández, president of Telemundo Network News.
With a focus on issues affecting the Hispanic community in America, the new series NBC News x Noticias Telemundo Reports launched with a joint piece on how critical testing and tracing are when it comes to preventing the kinds of outbreaks that disrupt entire industries, through the lens of agriculture and the food supply chain in California, filed by NBC News’ Gadi Schwartz and Noticias Telemundo’s Guad Venegas.
It will air in English on NBC News platforms, including Nightly News with Lester Holt, various MSNBC shows, NBC News NOW and TODAY, as part of the network’s special coverage this week, Search for Solutions: The American Economy. And the correspondents will also produce a Spanish-language version of the report to air on all Noticias Telemundo newscasts at 12:30p ET, 6:30p ET and 11:35p ET. Both pieces will also run on NBC News and Telemundo digital properties.
This week, Morgan Radford and Nicole Suárez will file a joint report on the impact of remote learning on the millions of families who do not speak English as a first language, to appear on the same shows and platforms, also with English and Spanish-language versions. This report will be part of NBC News’ larger special series next week: Coronavirus and the Classroom.
This is the first time the two divisions are collaborating in this way. Upcoming pieces in this series will include contributions from NBC News and Noticias Telemundo’s investigative teams, and more joint reporting efforts leading up to the 2020 elections.
“This exciting new collaboration with NBC News will expand our coverage of the most important issues for Hispanics in both English and Spanish at a crucial time for our community,” said Fernández.
“We’re thrilled to formally partner with our colleagues at Telemundo in this new and meaningful way, shining a light on stories and issues that affect a significant and rapidly-growing group of Americans, and reaching them in whichever language they consume news,” said Oppenheim.
