Univision president of programming and content Alberto Ciurana has resigned amid a shakeup in the company’s entertainment executive ranks.
The move had been rumored and was confirmed by CEO Randy Falco in a memo to staff. Falco said Ciurana decided to step down to spend more time with his family and has agreed to stay on in a consultancy basis through the transition.
“Please join me in thanking Beto for his many contributions over the past few years and for his passion for our content and our audience,” Falco wrote in the memo. “As you know, he has more than 35 years in the industry and this is his second time at Univision; he first worked with the team in 1986, returned to Televisa in various roles, and now has been with us since 2012.”
Falco said a successor for Ciurana will be named shortly.
