Univision's New Cable Channel Fusion Opens HQ In Doral
Univision dominates Spanish-language broadcasting, more than doubling the audience of its largest rival, Telemundo. But starting this fall, Univision will tackle an audience that has always been foreign to the Doral-based network: people who watch television in English.
With ABC as a partner, Univision is betting big on carving out a niche in English-language television with Fusion, a cable network billed as targeting young Hispanics.
Gov. Rick Scott traveled to Doral on Wednesday for a ribbon-cutting of the new, 150,000-square-foot news headquarters for both Univision and Fusion. The shared space will allow star journalist Jorge Ramos to deliver his 6:30 p.m. Univision newscast in Spanish, then walk about 50 steps to anchor an hour-long Fusion newscast in English.
