Fayetteville, NC — WUVC Univision 40, North Carolina’s first and only Spanish-language television station, announces the airing of its “Notibreves” (news briefs), conducted by Angie Pérez.

The “Notibreves” (news briefs) will air Monday through Friday, hourly, between 6:30 and 10:30 p.m., and their contents will address local news, including weather. In addition, every day of the week, one of the “Notibreves” will concentrate on a special subject, such as: Immigration, Finance, Practical Tips for Living in the U.S., Safety in the Work Area, and Cultural Agenda.

Ms. Pérez and Eduardo Chávez, Producer and Editor for “Noticias 40” (News 40), will produce the segments.

“Ever since we arrived in North Carolina last year, we at Univision 40 have shown a great presence in the Latin community and the “Notibreves”(news briefs) further this commitment with our Spanish-speaking viewers,” Ms. Pérez, presenter of the “Notibreves,” said. “I also feel very fortunate to be a part of this Univision initiative, which has given me the opportunity to come back to North Carolina, where I spent part of my childhood,” Pérez added.

Ms. Pérez has nine years of media experience. Also, she has a B.A. in International Studies from Universidad Central de Venezuela (Central University of Venezuela) and an M.A. in Television Broadcast Journalism from the University of Miami. Throughout her life, Ms. Pérez has had the opportunity to live in various locations, including Chapel Hill, NC, where she learned English as a child; and Mexico City, which allowed her to relate, first hand, with the subjects that affect the Mexican community.

Mr. Chávez, the “Notibreves” (news briefs) producer, has twelve years of experience in television production, including time spent as news producer for Panamericana de Televisión in Peru, and as show producer for “Buenos Días Perú” (Good Morning Peru), in the same television network. Mr. Chávez has a B.A. in Communications from Universidad de Lima (University of Lima), and has also studied photography and marketing.
