CNN en Español is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a number of initiatives airing throughout the year. The first is CNN: 20 Years of History, a special anchored by Patricia Janiot. It’s a retelling some of the most important and relevant stories CNN en Español has covered, shared by the network’s journalists.
“When CNN en Español began broadcasting in March 1997, it would have been impossible to predict the resources that would be at our disposal 20 years later to do journalism: the speed of communications, smartphones, social media. But the fundamental values that guided us then remain unchanged and are today more essential than ever: our commitment to rigor and discipline in the pursuit of truth, responsible investigate journalism and attention to details,” said Cynthia Hudson,svp and general manager of CNN en Español and Hispanic strategy for CNN/U.S.
The network reaches 49 million households in the U.S. and South America via various platforms.
