New Leadership for Chilevisión


ViacomCBS Networks Americas has put in place new leadership for its recently acquired free-to-air network, Chilevisión.

Darío Turovelzky, general manager of ViacomCBS South Cone, will oversee both Chilevisión and Argentina’s Telefe, as well as all ViacomCBS operations locally. Turovelzky continues to report to JC Acosta, president of ViacomCBS International Studios and Networks Americas.

Juan Ignacio Vicente “Iñaki” was named VP and executive director of Chilevisión and will report to Turovelzky.

“Under Darío’s leadership, Telefe has become the undisputed leader in free-to-air television in Argentina and has helped expand the ViacomCBS ecosystem; I have no doubt Chilevisión will thrive under his direction,” said Acosta. “I am equally as excited to have Iñaki onboard. With his distinctive track record in programming and leading teams in Chile, he is the perfect choice to lead Chilevisión and to create a perfect stronghold to support the local linear and streaming ViacomCBS ecosystem.”

“We are enthusiastic about having Chilevisión, a brand rich in history that has earned the trust of Chilean audiences, join the ViacomCBS South Cone organization,” said Turovelzky. “They bring with them the largest production studios in the country and an incredible team of talented employees, which, coupled with Iñaki’s vast experience and connections in the region, are sure to grow Chilevisión and the ViacomCBS global brands and streaming products locally.

“I am incredibly pleased to join Chilevisión and ViacomCBS, a leading global media and entertainment company with an impressive portfolio of premium content,” commented Vicente. “ViacomCBS streaming efforts in the free, paid and premium space is something that I am confident will help lead Chilevisión into a new era.”
