LATV announces the double nomination of its sister programs American Latino TV and LatiNation, each nominated in the Best National Informational Program Category for the 26th Annual Imagen Awards. The Imagen Foundation is the, Latino non-profit organization which promotes and honors positive portrayals of Latinos and Latino cultures in entertainment.
“I can’t tell you how excited and proud I am that we were nominated for not one, but two Imagen Awards this season,” said David Morales, Vice President Sales & Distribution of American Latino Syndication. “For the first time in a long time, American Latino and LatiNation have been nominated in the same category for Best National Informational Program. To receive a double nomination in the 9th and 7th seasons of these shows, it feels great!”
Not wavering in its commitment to offer quality programming to its bilingual and bicultural 18-49 viewer demographic, the sister programs are produced by American Latino Syndication, a division of LATV Networks, the national bilingual entertainment network. The award-winning nationally syndicated programs air in tandem in more than 90 cities across the U.S., Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands, including parts of Canada bordering the U.S.
This recognition serves as a second consecutive nomination in the same category and fifth nomination overall, with three wins in 2003, 2004 and 2005 for American Latino TV, a weekly cultural lifestyle program that set the standard for highlighting American Latino culture through entertainment, the arts and sciences, and education and sports.
