In a breaking report published today by Portada, CNN Latino, a Spanish-language venture launched last January for the U.S. Latino market, will cease programming operations this month.


Here is that the Portada report says:

“CNN Latino was a bold effort to emphasize CNN’s commitment to the Hispanic market in the United States,” said Isabel Bucaram , a spokeswoman for CNN in Spanish.

“During 2013 we learned a lot and will use that knowledge to continue to innovate and evolve our presence in the Hispanic community in the United States,” Bucaram added.

“Unluckily, despite the best efforts of many people, CNN Latino did not meet business expectations and its programming will finish this month.”

CNN in Spanish, the Spanish-language version of CNN, will continue on air.
