Cable Noticias

Cable Noticias is a channel of cable television. It is specialized in national and international news and it broadcasts 24 hours a day. It registers a 2% of preference in the national audience of the viewers of the country.

 

It began broadcasting in 2007, under the founding of Juan Gonzalo Ángel Restrepo and in 2011 it was sold to the Venezuelan entrepreneurs of the media sector Alberto Federico Ravell and Tobías Carrero Nácar (former owners of Globovisión – Venezuela).

 

According to Juan Gonzalo Ángel Restrepo, in the context of the negotiation the idea that the only media in the region able to counterbalance Telesur was Cablenoticias emerged, because it is present in 16 countries, including the United States and Mexico. The total cost of the transaction was 17 millions of dollars, a figure that resulted quite controversial due to the uncertainty about the source of the funds.

 

The current owners of Cable Noticias channel are Venezuelans.
