As competitive as television is generally, the Hispanic space has gotten even more intense. Not only are longtime foes Univision and Telemundo still battling it out, but with Hispanic viewers generally younger and more tech-savvy, newer platforms like Snapchat are making a bid for advertisers. Mindful of these threats, Lee has overseen the launch of a content development and production hub called Univision Story House, part of his Fusion Media Group unit, to make digital and linear content in both Spanish and English. On the sales front, Turner is spearheading a new programmatic effort, Mosaico Trading, and the Rodriguez-led Univision Deportes is a hard-charging sports magnet that just set a deal to stream Major League Soccer games—on Facebook—in English.
