NBC News Announces English-Language Latino News and Lifestyle Site, www.NBCLatino.com

NBC News announced Thursday that it is launching a new English-language Latino news and lifestyle website called NBCLatino.com. The website will focus on news, information and lifestyle content and offer Hispanic angles on big general market stories.

LISTEN to an extensive Q&A with NBC Latino Executive Editor Chris Peña on this week’s DL Podcast.

“Even though there are players in the space, we want to create a unique space and really tap into that pride that American Hispanics feel for their culture,” said Chris Peña, executive editor of NBCLatino.

The team already has a Tumblr blog at nbclatino.tumblr.com and the full website will launch in early 2012.

“It’s not about telling Latino stories or covering Latino stories because the reality is that what Latinos worry about is what everyone worries about,” Peña said. “It’s about the economy, it’s about jobs, it’s about education, it’s about health and immigration is somewhere in their and we’ll cover immigration when it is a news topic, but immigration is not what’s always front and center for us”

Mobile is a priority for the team and the site will be optimized for mobile users and will use HTML 5.

In addition to writing for the site, NBCLatino.com contributors will appear on other NBC programs.

  • Chris Peña, Executive Editor

  • Maria Eugenia Alcon, Deputy Editor
