“CNN en Español is not the same network we knew five years ago, we are different and we get a glimpse of the change as we go through FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019,” said Zurita Mista, Vice President of News and Sports at CNN en Español. “For us, this has always been a special project that allows us to bring our expertise and be a significant part of the story unfolding in France.”
The team will be covering each match and the headlines surrounding the sport as part of its all-court coverage that will also include behind-the-scenes stories and features on local soccer culture. Coverage on the air will include studio segments anchored by Mista with on-site reports by Sidner and Ramos along with anchor Julio Cesar Orozco del Sol who will also serve as CNN en Español’s on-site reporter at the All-Star Match.
