Details: Searchlight Capital Partners and ForgeLight will acquire a majority stake (64%) in Univision, per a statement from the network. Mexican TV giant Televisa will retain its ~36% stake in Univision.

  • Media veteran Wade Davis will become CEO of Univision upon closing, replacing Vince Sadusky, who had been with the network's CEO since 2018.
