Hearst Television says its launching a new weekly half-hour interview and discussion show.
The show will be hosted by Fernando Espuelas and will be called Matter of Fact With Fernando Espuelas. It will air on Sunday mornings. Some segments will be available on demand on the show’s website.
“We’ll give Americans an information toolkit to understand and engage with political and social issues,” said Espuelas. “We want people to hear from candidates and leaders – their visions and their answers to the questions that citizens want answered. Matter of Fact will seek to put information in context, in a conversation that shifts away from ideology, partisanship and inside-the-Beltway chatter, and explains the issues in a way that is down-to-earth, relevant and more inclusive for all audiences.”
Espuelas launched and conceived AT&T’s first online service in Latin America. In 1996, he co-founded and served as the CEO of StarMedia, a multi-platform media company for Spanish and Portuguese audiences. He created his own bilingual talk show for Univision Radio Network in 2008. The show was re-launched in 2012 as part of the new Univision America Network.
