The Library of American Broadcasting Foundation Presents the 2022 Broadcast Historian Award to Univision, Telemundo and the Rise of Spanish-Language Television in the United States, by Craig Allen
The Library of American Broadcasting Foundation (LABF) is pleased to announce the winner of its 2022 Broadcast Historian Award is Craig Allen, Arizona State University, for his book, Univision, Telemundo and the Rise of Spanish-Language Television in the United States. The book is the first comprehensive history of U.S. Spanish-language television. Drawing from ten years of archival research, original interviews, and exploration, it reveals the inside story behind the Spanish-language networks Univision and Telemundo, how they fought enormous odds, and finally rose as giants of mass communication in the English-speaking United States. The book argues that scholars’ study and understanding only of English-language television has hidden a key dimension of U.S. mass media, that they are extensively and endemically internationalized. Much of the book traces the rise of Mexican broadcast pioneer Emilio Azcárraga Vidaurreta, who founded Univision as the U.S.’s fourth television network only a few years after the beginning of TV on ABC, CBS, and NBC.
