Reality show picks network journalist


Univision Networks has a new reporter/producer/editor in its newsroom working alongside its staff of experienced journalists for Univision, TeleFutura and Galavisión. Franklin Leal Lozano was chosen live on the Galavisión cable network in the finale of the reality series "Misión: Reportar" (Mission: Report). He was selected based on viewer votes and the judgment of a panel of Univision Networks reporters.

A panel of judges, including Humberto Delgado, Professor of television production at Florida International University in Miami, evaluated and eliminated contestants throughout the competition. In addition, a variety of reporters and producers from Univision, TeleFutura and Galavisión served as guest judges each week offering their expert advice.

Galavisión partnered with Burger King, Colgate-Palmolive Company, Ford Motor Company, Sprint and Visa as the show's integrated sponsors. The partnerships included organic product placement.

In addition to an exclusive nine-month contract with the Univision Networks, Leal will receive the use of a Sprint mobile phone for a year and a laptop computer.
