Starmedia to Launch Finance Channel

While Hispanic portal Starmedia does not yet have any finance content, the company does have some plans in the works: “We are working to create "Starmedia Finanzas" in the coming months because this kind of content is very useful for our users and this audience very important for advertisers,” said Juan Jose Nunez, vice president of Starmedia.

According to Nunez, the new channel will include coverage of all the main countries in Latin America, news per country, recommendations and articles written by experts, stocks, index, currency, and video content. Nunez comments that, as planning is still underway, decisions regarding what sort of content will be included have not been finalized.

Starmedia expects the new channel to be live before the end of the year.
