Willie Lora named news director of CNN en Español.

Lora previously served as bureau chief in Washington DC, and will move to Atlanta to assume his new position.
As a new news director, Lora will be the chief executive of CNN en Español news content. He will be responsible for strategy, planning and implementation of the contents of news, as well as prioritization of coverage and editorial vision of the network.

Estereofónica / Google Translate version

The network needs an editorial change. For a few months now, it sometimes feels like the Chávez Watch Network, covering his every move and continuously speculating pointlessly about his future. It's not like there's nothing else happening in the world that they need to fill time. I have also been complaining about the considerable airtime given to U.S. local interest stories that you are more likely to see on HLN than CNNI, so a change there will also be welcome.

More so, if he could manage to make news shows more prominent than the exasperating vanity shows CNÑ airs daily and almost all weekend, that would be great. However, since those filler shows are the cornerstone of the 2010-2011 revamp, I don't see any changes coming there.
"This new management is not one that tolerates any questions. The changes are alienating the public who has been loyal to the network for so many years. They're looking for a new audience. But if you read the comments on the social network sites, the viewers are not pleased with what they see on the air."

This is old news already, but since I don't think it's been mentioned around here, I'll post it now.

Marcela Salazar has been named CNNE's Washington bureau manager, a position Willie Lora left a few months ago, as peramirez noted in the post above. She took over more than two weeks ago, but perhaps it's interesting to note that Marcela was John King's senior editorial producer for more than two years. Don't know if there's anything to read between the lines here about John King USA's future.

Full story about her transfer here.
