I wish I would have paid better attention in Spanish class back in HS, I'm pretty sure I won't be able to get the full effect of the report reading sub-titles.
Please excuse my ignorance on the matter, but is Univision a big deal to Latinos living here? Will it reach a large portion of the population or is it a low rating channel?
From the few news clips and the program that was on when I tuned in, it seems to be a rather high-budget and well done channel. Of course, I have no idea what anyone was saying, I'm basing my opinion on the fact is was in HD and the news sets looked very modern. (and not to mention that the news babes were good looking) :~)

Univision is a Spanish-language television network in the United States. It has the largest audience of Spanish-language television viewers according to Nielsen ratings. Randy Falco, (CEO as of June 29, 2011) COO, has been in charge of the company since the departure of Univision Communications president and CEO Joe Uva in April 2010. In recent years the network has reached parity with the U.S.'s five major English-language television networks, and is often a strong fifth, 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.
I suspect half of the ratings come from male gringos having impure thoughts while watching the weather report.

Huge deal. Big, big, big. They have a huge presence in the spanish-speaking community.
And should you wonder “Why Univision?” - I believe the answer is that they are not owned by one of the conglomerates that own most all other media in the US. Most of the private-sector media in the US is owned by only six companies.
And yes, their female staff are seriously easy on the eyes.
Their studios/production is run out of Florida, I believe.
