Univision Shuts Down Flama’s Editorial Division

The members of Flama’s editorial team are out of a job. Univision has eliminated the editorial division for the two-year old site.

Alexis Tirado, Flama’s Editorial Director, e-mailed the news to staffers and contributors across the country. An inside source says five staffers, including Tirado, were laid off, as well as eleven freelancers. According to Tirado’s e-mail, “the brand’s videos and social media presence will still be intact.” Described as an over-the-top content network “made by, for and with Hispanic millennials,” Flama launched in 2014. At least two people posted news of the demise of Flama’s editorial team.
