LOS ANGELES (August 26, 2016) — In its ongoing effort to organize Spanish-language television, SAG-AFTRA sent another message to Telemundo Thursday night by airing a 30-second commercial highlighting the double standard that exists between English-language and Spanish-language talent at the network’s parent company, NBCUniversal.

While Telemundo and Comcast refused to air the Spanish-language spot during the network’s live broadcast of Premios Tu Mundo, other Spanish-language stations in Miami, New York and Los Angeles ran the ad.
