Starting on the first Sunday in April CNN en Español will air Oppenheimer Presenta, a weekly show hosted by Andrés Oppenheimer, in the network’s United States and Latin America feeds. Every Sunday at 9 p.m. Oppenheimer Presenta will examine “the major trends on current topics and how they affect people, families, and countries.”

The host will present a weekly topic and feature interviews with personalities including analysis and comments by special guests. In the first show, Oppenheimer addresses the legalization of drugs and Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos is the featured guest. The programs will also reflect the topics addressed by Oppenheimer in his weekly The Miami Herald column syndicated to 60 newspapers.

Oppenheimer was a 1987 Pulitzer Prize co-winner, along with the journalism team of The Miami Herald. In 1993, he received the Premio Ortega y Gasset of the newspaper El País in Madrid, and was selected one of the 500 most important journalists of the United States by the Forbes Media Guide. In 2001, he received the Premio Rey de España given by the EFE agency and the King of Spain. The following year, Poder magazine selected him as one of the 100 most powerful figures in Latin America.

CNN en Español, the first 24-hour television network of CNN independently produced in a language other than English, was launched March 17, 1997. The network provides continuous regional and world news coverage with context and in-depth analysis, and shows on the economy, finances, health, technology and entertainment. CNN en Español has a subscriber base up to 27 million households and hotel rooms in Latin America and 7 million households in the United States.
