“We’re delighted to partner with The Atlantic to continue expanding the quantity and quality of digital content targeted to Spanish speakers in the United States,” said Isaac Lee, president of News and Digital for Univision Communications Inc. and CEO of Fusion. “CityLab’s unique, city-focused perspective and world-class journalism, combined with tailor-made, original reporting from Univision News will undoubtedly create a truly engaging digital publication that will enhance our already highly successful website, Univision.com.”
“We’re eager to work with and learn from the Univision team, which has demonstrated so much ambition and innovation in digital media,” said Bob Cohn, The Atlantic’s co-president and COO. “We also see an opportunity to bring The Atlantic’s experience and success in the events space to this partnership, taking coverage of city-related issues to live audiences in key Univision markets around the country.”
The editorial focus and sensibility of CityLab Latino will be heavily influenced by CityLab.com, which stands alone in its coverage of the cities of the future and the people and events that shape them. CityLab.com is a must-read for city-dwellers and the leading source for those who create and influence today’s cities—heralded for its sharp analysis, original reporting, and visual storytelling. Among its offerings are Navigator, a guide to urban life, and CityFixer, which curates powerful solutions-based stories around a dozen topics, from streets and climate change to aging and mass transit. The editor of CityLab.com is Sommer Mathis.
CityLab Latino is the second distinct, topic-focused content partnership for Univision Digital. In early 2014, Univision introduced the Variety Latino entertainment news brand, which provides Spanish speakers across the nation with unparalleled coverage of all aspects of the global entertainment industry.
