Period: 1976–1986. The most radiant period in Spanish- language television ensues when SIN’s satellite links provide the U.S. vast international programming. SIN is chief affiliate of Azcárraga Milmo’s multinational network he names “Univision.” Ignoring Fouce’s lawsuit, Anselmo consolidates control. Without competition, turning profits, and freed of Azcárraga’s grip, he pushes numerous initiatives, many unorthodox. His hunger strike in New York obtains a prized World Trade Center transmitting site. Using names of fictitious characters, his letters to the FCC win needed satellite relays. He launches the first Spanish-language network news. Headed by Gustavo Godoy, the newscast excels until Televisa, and its head Jacobo Zabludovsky, attempt its takeover. In the largest-ever mutiny in a U.S. newsroom, Godoy and dozens of news personnel resign. They force Televisa’s retreat. However, a ten-year “golden age” ends with the removal of Anselmo, Azcárraga, and others, and the demise of Spanish International.

Keywords:   Gustavo Godoy, Jacobo Zabludovsky, Spanish-language television
