Univision is eliminating some roles, including Fusion Media Group CEO Felipe Holguin, as it integrates its English-language assets.

Why it matters: According to sources within the company, the move is part of plans to restructure its business in light of a cancelled IPO, which was triggered by difficult market conditions that have led to consolidation within the industry.

Sameer Deen, EVP of Univision Digital, will now oversee Univision’s entire digital portfolio of English and Spanish-language assets, including Gizmodo Media Group (Jezebel, Deadspin, etc.), The Onion, and

  • Deen will report to Univision CEO Randy Falco, who announced he would be retiring within the year.
  • Those editorial properties will remain independent digital entities.

Tonia O’Connor, Univision’s Chief Revenue Officer, will oversee the FUSION cable network. O’Connor will replace Daniel Eilemberg, who has led the network for the past two years.

  • Non-editorial functions at Fusion Media Group, including human resources, marketing and public relations will now report to the corresponding division leaders at Univision.  

The backstory: Univision’s English-language media assets have been a key investment for the company as it has looked to diversify its business and bolster digital revenue. Last fall, Deadline reported that following Univision’s digital expansion with the acquisition of Gizmodo Media Group (formerly Gawker Media) its combined digital revenue saw a healthy increase.

Mike Bloomberg's $100 million Florida blitz begins today and will continue "wall to wall" in all 10 TV markets through Election Day, advisers tell me.

Why it matters: Bloomberg thinks that Joe Biden putting away Florida is the most feasible way to head off the national chaos we could have if the outcome of Trump v. Biden remained uncertain long after Election Day.

When he talks about Russia, Joe Biden has sounded like Ronald Reagan all summer, setting up a potential Day 1 confrontation with Russian President Vladimir Putin if Biden were to win.
