CNN en Español before 1997Edit
In 1988, CNN began producing news in Spanish with Noticiero CNN, aimed at Spanish-speaking audiences in the United States and Latin America.
In 1992, CNN International started the Noticiero CNN Internacional, the first in Spanish on that channel. Other programs in Spanish were Las Noticias and Noticias México, all of them presented by the Colombian Patricia Janiot and the Uruguayan Jorge Gestoso, and with the direction of Rolando Santos. The following year, CNN Radio en Español was launched.
On March 17, 1997, CNN en Español began broadcasting 24 hours a day. In addition, the chain's production centers begin to operate in Buenos Aires and Havana. The correspondent in the Cuban capital was the first office of a US organization on the island.
In 2010, the CNN debuted a new logo, with a new programming lineup.
CNN en Español is available throughout Hispanic America (except Cuba), and the United States. In Canada, a number of the network's shows are simulcast on Univision Canada. In Venezuela, the channel is available via live-streaming on YouTube and its official website since 2017.
On 15 February 2017, Venezuela's National Commission of Telecommunications blocked CNN en Español from any national TV provider, saying a report from the network regarding passport fraud was "[a threat to] the peace and democratic stability" of the nation. Conatel additionally blocked sister network CNN International and BBC World News on 30 April 2019 during an uprising attempt.
CNN en Español provides live coverage of some news events, and since 2016, has carried the Spanish-language audio (though the video remains the regular English presentation) for Major League Baseball postseason games carried by sister network TBS only in the United States. CNN en Español features newscasts throughout the day.
In March 1999, CNN en Español launched an independent feed for Mexico. This exclusive signal of CNN en Español airs Noticias Mexico, a primetime newscast dedicated to covering important local, domestic and international events of special significance to Mexican viewers. CNN en Español’s Mexico feed also features InfoCinta CNN, an electronic ticker located at the bottom of the screen containing news headlines, sports, financial and weather information.
