JOURNALISM: A New Vision for Univision


Isaac Lee, the president of news at Univision, describes his efforts to expand both the network’s news coverage and its audience.

While many sectors of the U.S. media are in limbo or dying, the Univision news division is expanding and developing at an extraordinary rate. In 2010, the company brought in Colombian entrepreneur and investigative journalist Isaac Lee to serve as president of news. Lee believes their decision signaled a change in the vision of the company. "No one hires me to keep things calm or for business as usual," he said at a recent event hosted by the Graduate School of Journalism at UC Berkeley. "They hired me because they needed a revolution."
