“NOTICIAS TELEMUNDO PLANETA TIERRA” DEBUTS WITH REPORT INTO SEA OF GARBAGE OFF THE CENTRAL AMERICA COAST TODAY ON “NOTICIAS TELEMUNDO” AT 6:30PM/5:30C

MIAMI –SEPTEMBER 12, 2018 - Noticias Telemundo will present today the first story produced by “Noticias Telemundo Planeta Tierra,” its recently established news unit devoted to environmental issues led by Emmy Award-winning journalist Vanessa Hauc. The focus of this first “Noticias Telemundo Planeta Tierra” story is the so-called sea of garbage forming along the outlets of the Motagua River on the coasts of Guatemala and Honduras, with devastating consequences for ecological equilibrium in the Caribbean Sea. The report will air during the primetime edition of the Noticias Telemundo newscast today at 6:30 pm/5:30 CT.

“‘Noticias Telemundo Planeta Tierra’ aims to fill the information gap on Spanish-language television about the impact we humans are having on our planet,” Hauc said. “It’s one of the main challenges facing our generation. Today more than ever, offering accurate and relevant information about climate change is of fundamental importance.”

The launch of “Noticias Telemundo Planeta Tierra” comes during a time of expansion for Noticias Telemundo that includes the creation of a new investigative unit, “Noticias Telemundo Investiga”, and the addition of new studios at the Telemundo Center, the network’s new headquarters.
