Univision Inks Ten-Year Deal for Latin Grammy Awards


Univision Communications Inc. (UCI) has scored a new ten-year agreement that will keep the Latin Grammy Awards on the Univision Network through 2028.

The new pact extends the partnership that was established in 2005 with The Latin Recording Academy to include multiplatform coverage across UCI’s portfolio of broadcast and digital brands. It includes the 20th anniversary of the Latin Grammy Awards in 2019. This year’s 19th annual Latin Grammy Awards will be held on November 15 live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“We are pleased to be the home of the Latin Grammys for another ten years, to continue to grow our long-standing relationship with The Latin Recording Academy, and to celebrate excellence in Latin music,” said Randy Falco, president and CEO of UCI. “The decade-long structure of this agreement will provide more opportunities for two great brands to collaborate on making the live telecast of Latin music’s most celebrated night even more compelling for U.S. Hispanic audiences by deploying UCI’s innovative platforms to reach broader audiences.”

“The Latin Recording Academy, the predominant organization that supports and celebrates the hard work, excellence, and talent of Latin music creators and artists, will continue to excel with Univision,” said Gabriel Abaroa, Jr., president and CEO of The Latin Recording Academy. “We are elated to give our empowering mission a platform from which to thrive and grow. Music is more alive than ever, and Latin music has shown again and again its worldwide impact and tremendous exportability.”
