Hispanic-American media company Univision Communications Inc. (UCI) has appointed Isaac Lee (pictured) to the newly created position of chief news, entertainment and digital officer.

Lee – who joined UCI in 2010 as president of news before rising to chief news and digital officer – has led the company’s push into the digital realm through the creation of the Fusion Media Group (FMG), which includes Fusion, The Root, Flama, A.V. Club, Clickhole, satirical news site The Onion, Univision Digital and Univision Music.

In this new role, Lee’s remit will be expanded to include oversight of the firm’s music, news, entertainment and digital content across all platforms, while continuing to manage FMG. He continues to report to Randy Falco, president and CEO of UCI.

Lee will continue to work alongside Mexican multimedia company Televisa, while overseeing UCI’s JV with W Studios.

A new president of entertainment will be named in the near future, and the position will report into Lee.

The appointment comes as UCI looks to bolster and expand its content offerings by building on the monthly average of 81 million unique media consumers across the firm’s linear television, radio and digital portfolios.

Earlier this year, UCI launched the multi-lingual development and production venture Storyhouse, which recently inked a content deal with HBO.
