NBC Shutting Down NBC Latino
After only 16 months of existence, NBC is shutting down NBCLatino.com with coverage moving to NBCNews.com when that site relaunches next year.
Some positions will be eliminated, but sources say those staffers may be offered positions in other parts of NBC.
NBCLatino.com launched with resources from MSNBC.com and NBC News programs as well as some original reporting.
A NBC News spokesperson reports that redirecting NBC Latino's website to NBCNews.com “will allow its content to reach a much larger audience and it will further enhance NBC News’s commitment and ability to cover news and issues that matter to the Latino community.”
NBC Latino received an HOLA Excellence in Media Award in 2012. For more information, click here.
