In a historic first, CBS News will contribute to Telefe Noticias 2020 U.S. election coverage for Latin American audiences. Starting on Monday, November 2, Telefe Noticias, the # 1 newscast in Argentina, will begin special coverage with Telefe's morning news show, "Buen Telefe." As the day progresses, Telefe's primetime newscast "Telefe Noticias," will provide up-to-the-minute live reports with top political bilingual CBS News journalists.
"This synergy between ViacomCBS's top news organizations is a clear reflection of our company's ability to collaborate and to leverage the power of the ViacomCBS news team," commented Dario Turovelzky, SVP, GM for South Cone at ViacomCBS Networks Americas. "We are thrilled with this partnership, and we look forward to bringing our world-class journalists together again to inform global audiences with the most up-to-date and objective information."
In addition to Telefe's broadcast coverage, Pluto TV, the leading free streaming television service, will deliver election coverage in Latin America through its Telefe Noticias channel (#205) which will broadcast the live editions of Telefe's newscast; as well as stream cut-ins from CBSN, CBS News' 24/7 streaming service on Monday and Tuesday throughout the day.
Telefe Noticias will also stream and provide highlights of the historic U.S. election coverage from CBSN on TelefeNoticias.com.ar and Telefe Noticias social media channels on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok.
