MIAMI, FL – July 1, 2019 – Noticias Telemundo’s new state-of-the-art studio at Telemundo Center won two Broadcast Production Awards granted by the trade publication NewscastStudio in the categories of Set Design, National and Set Technology of the year.

“This award is not just a recognition to a studio set, but also to the way we visually and physically interpreted our team’s dedication and hard work,” said Luis Fernández, Executive Vice President of Noticias Telemundo. “Noticias Telemundo would like our Latino viewers to know that we offer them the best news content, produced from a great home.”

Juan Ramón Martín, Creativity and Image Director for Spain’s Atresmedia Group, designed the new studio considering three main elements: a next-generation LED screen capable of creating a realistic environment; a multifunctional anchor’s desk with multiple configurations; and a space for the anchors to stand and interact with multiple video feeds.
