â€œOne NaciÃ³n aims to provide a voice thatâ€™s inclusive and reflective of the entire U.S. Hispanic experience; their achievements and challenges,â€ said Hugo Balta, senior director of multicultural content for ESPN. â€œThe project is a great collaboration between several entities across ESPN and ESPN Deportes. It further highlights the work produced across networks, platforms and sites, while better serving the Hispanic audience that navigates across both cultures.â€
One NaciÃ³n will also present original content showcasing ESPNâ€™s bilingual talent and experienced journalists. ESPN Digital mediaâ€™s Antonietta Collins and ESPN Deportesâ€™ Alfredo Lomeli will serve as hosts, presenting bi-weekly video segments that highlight the latest hot button topics of this diverse audience. All segments will be presented in a mix of both languages.
In addition, One NaciÃ³n will feature No Hablo espaÃ±ol, a video series produced from Los Angeles that focuses on the perspectives of second/third generation Latinos, displaying noteworthy guests from the sports and entertainment industry.
As part of its debut, One NaciÃ³n will feature a special report about Puerto Ricoâ€™s 1995 baseball â€œDream Teamâ€ which boasted a roster that included Roberto Alomar, Bernie Williams and Carmelo Martinez to name a few. The island nation will once again host this yearâ€™s Caribbean Series, which begins on February 2. (Complete coverage of the Caribbean Series will be presented exclusively on ESPN Deportes)
One NaciÃ³n Digital is an expansion of the ESPN brand created in 2013 to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. The special was the first bi-lingual, one-hour studio show to be produced for ESPN. It aired live on ESPN and ESPN Deportes, and its content was presented across multiple other platforms.
