CNN Shuts Down CNN Latino

CNN Latino is ending its short year-long run this month. Que pasó?

According to The Huffington Post, the network did not meet expectations. "CNN Latino was a bold effort to continue CNN’s commitment to the Hispanic market in the United States," CNN en Español spokeswoman Isabel Bucarám said in a statement.

"Unfortunately, despite the best efforts from many talented people, CNN Latino did not meet business expectations and programming will be discontinued this month.”

Miami Herald reports that numerous staffers will lose their jobs as a result, but the exact number is still unknown.

CNN Latino was launched in January 2013 to focus on reaching the Hispanic community.

Did you watch CNN Latino? Are you sad to see it go?
