corporate information - english
Created in 1987, Telemundo is now a global media company with a mission to inform, empower, inspire and entertain Hispanics in the U.S. and audiences around the world. This charge is aligned with the original vision of Angel Ramos, who in 1954 founded WKAQ, the first Telemundo station, in Puerto Rico.
With the support and extensive resources of its parent company NBCUniversal, Telemundo has evolved from a program-acquisition business model to an original-production model, strategically positioning the network to deliver relevant content to its audience, distribute its content across a wide range of digital media, and develop a fast-growing back-end international sales business.
Telemundo's original productions, theatrical motion pictures, news and first-class sports events are part of the network's innovative and relevant original content delivered across multiple platforms. Telemundo has redefined the Spanish-language television landscape, set industry standards and has established itself as the media company of the future. The network's original programming is smart, provocative and traditional with values that embody innovation, commitment, captivating story-telling and community, continuously pushing the limits to achieve success. Telemundo's tagline "Atrévete a Mas" (Be More Daring) is a call to action, empowering its audiences to ignite the power of their dreams through the compelling storylines that resonate with U.S. Hispanics.STUDIOS/DREAM FACTORY
The story of Hispanics in America is one built on dreams and at Telemundo, viewers are challenged and empowered to ignite the power of their dreams. A leading global Spanish-language content provider with production studios in Miami and Colombia, Telemundo produces over 1,000 novela hours and 3,000 non-novela hours a year.
Telemundo was the first Spanish-language network to offer HD content both at the local and network levels. The quality of the original content together with the talent and expertise of the network's engineers provides a unique TV experience. All Telemundo content produced in HD will be automatically ready for multiplatform use and distribution.STATIONS
Telemundo's local stations are the lifeblood of its connection to the community. The Telemundo Network reaches 94% of U.S. Hispanic households and is available in all 210 U.S. television markets through its 14 owned stations in the continental U.S., 46 broadcast affiliates and more than 1,000 Cable/DBS affiliates. Telemundo also owns independent station WKAQ in Puerto Rico.
The network announced a comprehensive strategy for its news division in late 2009 that placed increased commitment and investment in local stations and local news. News platforms have been expanded in order to reach all of Telemundo's audiences at a time when news and information are important to our country and essential in serving the community.CABLE
mun2 is Telemundo's bilingual, bicultural youth cable network. The network is built on the mission to be the unique and leading voice that empowers culture connectors to amplify the Latino experience. mun2 is the preeminent voice for bicultural Hispanics in the U.S., reaching over 34.1 million U.S. TV households nationwide on digital and analog cable, as well as satellite television. The network was created for the 18-34 Young Latino American (YLA) and provides programming designed to offer the best of both worlds to this audience, making them feel "uniquely American". As is reflected in the programming tagline "You're on," mun2 speaks to the impact bilingual and bicultural Latinos have on U.S. culture.DIGITAL

Telemundo's partnership with the MSN Network provides enormous reach, delivering relevant original content on both networks to audiences across the country and around the world.INTERNATIONAL
The success of Telemundo's unique original content model in the U.S. has translated into a booming global business. Telemundo International, the company's international distribution arm, has established the network as the second largest distributor of Spanish-language content in the world with global giants taking notice. In an exclusive alliance with Televisa, Telemundo became the first U.S. Spanish-language broadcast network to air its programming on Mexican television, currently airing on Channel 9 in Mexico, as well as on cable and online. The network's programs are exported to more than 100 countries worldwide and translated in over 35 different languages.

Telemundo connects with the community like no other network and has a strong reputation for its national awareness and mobilization campaigns. Committed to educating and empowering the U.S. Hispanic community, Telemundo launched its "El Poder de Saber" (The More You Know) - sister campaign to NBC's Emmy and Peabody award-winning The More You Know initiative - in 2004 to raise awareness about important social issues. Through its programming and other pro-social initiatives including Los Plateados Literacy Campaign, and Anita No Te Rajes' Viviendo en USA, The Telemundo Immigrant's Guide to the U.S. and Mujer de Hoy, as well as the NBCU secondary education grants program, Telemundo helps its audience gain access to important information and resources that have bettered their lives.
In April 2009, Telemundo launched "іHazte Contar!" (Be Counted), a national initiative designed to increase awareness of the 2010 Census among U.S. Hispanics and increase their participation in this significant national process. The campaign was aimed at creating awareness among the U.S. Hispanic community about the Census process and promoting community involvement as a means of gaining a more accurate representation of the U.S. Hispanic population. A large digital component served as the ultimate resource for information on the 2010 Census via www.telemundo.com. Under the slogan "We Count", Telemundo's youth channel, mun2, joined the campaign to provide its viewers with valuable information about the 2010 Census. Telemundo also joined important community organizations like LULAC, MANA and the United States Hispanic Leadership Institute (USHLI) to take the Census message directly to local communities. In addition, the network joined with education experts Young Minds Inspired (YMI) to present the "іHazte Contar!" campaign in classrooms across the country via virtual lessons designed to raise awareness and motivate young people to participate in this national process.INDUSTRY RECOGNITION
