On April 10, 2018, NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises announced the inauguration of Telemundo Center, its new global headquarters in Miami, FL. Telemundo Center sets the new standard for Hispanic media as the only next-generation, multimedia production facility with news, sports, entertainment, studios, international and digital all under one roof. With an investment of more than $250 million, Telemundo Center unlocks the power of Comcast and NBCUniversal’s commitment to Hispanic consumers while advancing the future of media.
The new state-of-the-art facility enables unmatched capacity to create high quality, original Spanish-language content to satisfy the diverse appetites of today’s U.S. Latinos. Producing over 3,000 hours of original content a year, Telemundo Center supports unprecedented growth with 15 highly adaptive studios, including two digital studios, virtual and augmented-reality sets, and a state-of-the-art news operation that provides unrivaled flexibility to produce the content that is driving the network’s popularity with audiences and advertisers.
A lot has changed since I worked at Telemundo Philadelphia in 2011/2012, and it’s been for the best! Right before I left, NBC Universal Telemundo Station Group acquired Telemundo Philadelphia, and then in 2013 the station officially moved in with NBC10.
It was just last December 2017 that NBC Universal’s Telemundo Station Group struck a deal to acquire the rest of the 13 television stations from ZGS Communications, Inc., which owns and operated the Telemundo affiliates.
One of my greatest memories working with Telemundo was meeting Dr. Ana Maria Polo, and even interviewing her!
