CNN en Espanol to kick off in March

MEXICO CITY — Turner has fixed a launch date of March 17 for its Spanish-lingo newsnet CNN en Espanol and unveiled the newsnet’s programming slate.

The 24-hour service, which enters Latin America with distribution deals already completed for 3.5 million subscribers, will operate alongside the English-lingo CNN Intl.

Hard news programming highlights include “Ahora,” a 90-second newscast airing at the top of all half-hour feature programs, guaranteeing that viewers are never more than 30 minutes away from the news; and primetime world news round-up “Panorama Mundial.”

Feature programming includes interview slot “Perspectiva”; daily sports and showbiz slots “Deportes CNN” and “Escenario”; and “Enfoque,” which each weekday explores a different topic, such as the environment, medicine and travel.
