ADIOS TO CNN LATINO

CNN is shutting down CNN Latino after barely a year since it was launched, the Latino media website MediaMoves.com reported on Wednesday. Although the syndicated service had signed up outlets in numerous key markets, including Los Angeles and New York, it was, in the words of a statement issued by CNN en Español (CNNE), “not able to fulfill our business expectations.” When it was launched, Cynthia Hudson-Fernandez, SVP and GM of CNNE and Hispanic strategy for CNN/U.S. said in an interview with Media Moves that they would be creating “a unique product that had a unique spin for the U.S. Hispanic market.” “Evidently,” said the website, “that formula didn’t work.”
