NBC is launching the latest in a slew of new English-language Latino online news sites.
The managing editor of NBCLatino.com, Chris Pena, says the site will launch in early 2012 but did not give a specific date. For now, readers can check out the site's tumblr blog.
Pena says the new site will leverage NBC Universal's resources, including those of its Spanish-language network Telemundo. It will focus on the U.S. Hispanic community.
Telemundo's rival, Spanish-language giant Univision already has a similar English-language news site and Facebook page. Last year, Fox News unveiled its online Fox News Latino. And The Huffington Post recently launched Huffpost LatinoVoices.
The new sites have sprung up as the latest census numbers show U.S. born natives have surpassed immigrants as the fastest growing Hispanic community.
