“Podcasting is a powerful medium for sharing inspiring stories about people making a real impact on their communities, and we are thrilled to be working with incredible talent to shine a spotlight on the people behind these inspirational stories,” said Luis De La Parra, senior vice president, Partner Solutions at Univision. “We are also proud to partner with POPSUGAR on this project, which wouldn’t be possible without its support.”
This 16-episode series will premiere on August 12 and be hosted by Univision’s Andrea Chediak, fashion reporter for Univision’s “Despierta América” (Wake Up, America). She is also founder and CEO of AC Styling Inc., which offers image consultation and styling services for television appearances, editorial, print, advertising campaigns, commercials, and photo sessions. Chediak graduated from the University of Miami in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science. The series is being produced by Marisa Venegas, a three-time Emmy Award-winning television executive producer, writer and multicultural media expert specializing in long-form nonfiction content. Her 26-year career has included work with NBC, CBS, and Univision.
Each episode will be tied to themes from women in STEM to Hispanic Heritage Month and the December holiday season, and feature guests who are trailblazers in ways great and small, embracing life and those around them to help bring a better tomorrow. These individuals have forged their own path, inspiring their communities with new ideas and new ways of thinking. Ideas that bring optimism and shine a light on the importance of togetherness. The series will be available across all popular podcast apps, as well as www.univision.com/juntosweshine.
Univision will promote “Juntos We Shine” across its media platforms, including on “Despierta América” with custom integrations in the most-watched morning show in Spanish-language television, branded podcast awareness vignettes, primetime spots, as well as on digital and radio. It will also be cross-promoted on Univision and POPSUGAR’s social media channels, and via videos on POPSUGAR
