Award Winning Journalist Joins Univision Team

MIAMI, FL – Univision Network, one of the top five networks in the U.S. regardless of language, has just announced that award-winning journalist Ilia Calderón has been named the new anchor for Noticiero Univision’s late evening edition, which is now called “Noticiero Univision Edición Nocturna.” Calderón will join the late news team, presenting national and international news and conducting interviews in this news program airing every evening.

“These changes speak to Univision’s continued commitment to deliver the best news programming as part of our mission to inform and empower our community,” said Daniel Coronell, vice president of News, Univision Communications. “Ilia is a world-class journalist who will bring her experience, integrity and understanding of our community to this role.”


In the past decade, Univision’s late evening news audience has grown by 53 percent among Total Viewers and Adults 25-54, while “ABC News: Nightline” audience has declined by -19 percent among Total Viewers and -32 percent among Adults 25-54. Moreover, season-to-date, the median age of the Univision late news viewer is 43 vs. 56 for ABC.

Calderón will continue in her role as co-anchor of Univision’s daily news magazine program, “Primer Impacto” (First Impact), one of the highest-rated news shows in the United States, and in 12 Latin American countries.

She began her professional career as a journalist in Colombia in 1994, where she anchored a newscast in Medellin, Colombia’s second largest city. In 1997 she became news anchor for Colombia’s nightly newscast. Calderón held that position until she moved to the U.S. in 2001. In the United States, Calderón has reported on major national and international events such as the September 11 terrorist attacks, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and Saddam Hussein’s capture. She has interviewed many political figures and celebrities, including U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton; former Colombian President, Álvaro Uribe; Mexico’s former Secretary of Foreign Relations, Jorge Castañeda; and international superstar Shakira. Calderón has had a long and highly successful career in her native Colombia and in the United States. She has received many professional accolades, including an Emmy Award and the “Premio Orquídea” for best international journalist in 2005.
