President of Programming & Content, Univision Networks

With Univision’s historic July Sweeps win over all other nets in 18-49s and 18-34s, Ciurana is focused on keeping up the ratings momentum. And no doubt there will be even more focus on him, now that he reports directly to president/CEO Randy Falco in the wake of Cesar Conde’s exit. His goals include making “Despierta America” the No. 3 morning show, ahead of “CBS This Morning.” “Becoming number one this July at Univision is undoubtedly an accomplishment that shows the hard work and commitment my team has for serving our audience,” Ciurana says. He has also amassed more than 1.3 million Twitter followers, with whom he engages on programming and shares inspirational thoughts. “We never stop learning in this business, as the audience is very dynamic and I find myself continually learning,” he says.
