Juan Carlos Rodriguez

In a very short time, Rodriguez made Univision Deportes the top Spanish- language cable sports network. In June, it was the No. 1 cable sports net in primetime, period. Obtaining the exclusive Spanish-language rights to the Copa America Centenario soccer tournament made Univision Deportes the go-to network for soccer fans across the country, and ratings grew as the tournament progressed, culminating in the most-watched final match in the tournament’s history and drawing more viewers than the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Rodriguez wants the network to help others, too. In 2015 the network made a donation to Florida’s Soccer Youth Academy, which helped to renovate all training facilities and provided transportation to all matches.
