Univision (Spanish pronunciation: [uniβiˈsjon]) is an American Spanish language broadcast television network that is owned by Univision Communications. The network's programming is aimed at Latino Americans and includes telenovelas and other drama series, sports, sitcoms, reality and variety series, news programming, and imported Spanish-language feature films. It has the largest audience of any Spanish-language television network in the world, according to Nielsen Media Research.
Univision is headquartered in New York City, and has its major studios, production facilities, and business operations based in Doral, Florida (near Miami). In recent years, the network has reached viewership parity with the five major English language U.S. television networks – often placing a strong fifth in prime time and overall ratings, outranking The CW, with some fourth-place weekly placings, and as of 2012, even first-place rankings for individual programs over all five English networks due to the network's consistent schedule of new telenovelas all 52 weeks of the year.
Univision is available on cable and satellite television throughout most of the United States, with local stations in over 60 markets with large Hispanic and Latino populations. Most of these stations air full local newscasts and other local programming in addition to network shows; in major markets such as Los Angeles, Miami, and New York City, the local newscasts carried by the network's owned-and-operated stations are equally competitive with their English language counterparts ratings-wise. Chief operating officer Randy Falco (who was appointed in the position on January 18, 2011, and officially took over as CEO on June 29 of that year) has been in charge of the company since the departure of Univision Communications president and CEO Joe Uva in April 2010.
