—Fox International Channels and the RCN Television Group have announced the appointment of Ibra Morales as President of MundoFox, effective today.
Morales joins MundoFox from the Katz Television Group, where he was
senior vice president of National Marketing. Previously, Morales
had served as president of the Telemundo Station Group and as senior
vice president of Sales for Hearst-Argyle Television.
“Ibra is an outstanding executive with a deep understanding of the
broadcasting industry in the U.S. and significant experience in sales and
distribution. We are truly excited to have him on board,” said Gabriel Reyes, CEO of RCN.
“Since we launched MundoFox in Fall 2012, we’ve said that building a
major new U.S. Hispanic broadcast network is a marathon not a sprint.
In Ibra, we not only have an experienced television executive but an
active marathoner. That’s a great combination,” said FIC CEO Hernan Lopez.
MundoFox is a joint venture between RCN and FIC. Morales will report to the venture’s board.
“I’m very excited to be part of building MundoFox into a dominant
force in the Hispanic community, the fastest growing sector of the
population in the United States,” said Morales. “Our goal
is to create a vital environment of news, entertainment and information
for our viewers, and attract advertisers who are looking for engaging
ways to reach these consumers.”
