Content will be a mix of CityLab reporting that’s been translated into Spanish and original content produced by a team that The Atlantic and Univision are jointly hiring. Editors and writers will be primarily split between Miami and Washington, DC, with others stationed in cities across the country.
Ad revenue from the site, which is expected to launch in early 2016, will also be shared between the companies.
“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,” says Isaac Lee, president of News and Digital for Univision Communications Inc. and CEO of Fusion, in a statement.
Univision may also adopt The Atlantic’s bullish take on live events, eventually spinning off a series of summits related to CityLab content.
