"Such findings, coupled with Telemundo's unique original content capabilities across all screens, provide the perfect formula for delivering a comprehensive media strategy. Peter's leadership in this space continues to take Telemundo to the next level while further positioning the network as a major industry player that can produce and distribute top-tier content on all platforms to both our advertisers and audience."
