WorldView: Nuvo TV Upfront Presentation
Watch the Nuvo TV Upfront Presentation recap above featuring Nuvo TV Chief Creative Officer, Jennifer Lopez.
The NUVOtv upfront was held Wednesday at the Edison Ballroom in New York City where the network announced a new programming lineup that kicks off on July 18th. NUVOtv creative and business partner Jennifer Lopez took the stage as the network’s newly appointed Chief Creative Officer.
“Latinos are a force in this country. We are an engine for growth – we have huge economic power and unprecedented political and cultural influence and it’s time for television to reflect who the modern Latino actually is – not who we are believed to be – not who we may have been – but who we are now,” said Jennifer Lopez.
The network also revealed a new on-air look with a new logo and color palette along with the tag line – We Are It. Rebrand initiatives launching July 1 also include a full-refresh of the network website www.mynuvotv.com and heavier program integration of NUVOtv talent and network partners.
Chief Executive Officer Michael Schwimmer said, “This upfront marks just the beginning of our aggressive plan to take NUVOtv’s programming and marketing to the next level. Our partnership with Jennifer Lopez, combined with greater network awareness and programming investments, boosts our leadership in this critical category of Latino entertainment and provides advertisers with a more modern, innovative approach to the US Latino audience.”
