TV Broadcaster Wants To Move Its National HQ To Miami, Bringing 250 High-Paying Jobs

A television broadcaster – likely Univision – is planning to move its national headquarters to Doral, bringing high-paying jobs.

The company is requesting $1.5 in incentives from Miami-Dade for the move.

The name of the company is being kept confidential in a request for incentives using the name Project Puma. However, DOJ and FCC settlements listed in the filing match those made by Univision, an analysis by The Next Miami shows.

Univision Communications Inc., the parent company of the TV broadcaster, is already based in Miami-Dade.

A total of 250 jobs will be created at the new headquarters, with average annual wages of $150,000 per job in a variety of headquarters operations roles such as executives, general and administrative, finance and others, the application states. Employees would also receive incentives estimated at $15,000 to $30,000.

A total of $50 million will be invested to renovate and expand a 300,000 square foot facility the company already has in Doral. Construction would begin in 2021.

The company already has 1,250 employees in four Miami-Dade locations, the request states.

Miami-Dade’s commission is scheduled to vote on approving the incentives at a meeting today.

 

The company’s current facility (not shown) is next to Trump Doral (shown):

Be a big boy like Viacom and open the office in Downtown. If there are tv studios in Manhattan, it sure isn’t that expensive to build studios in the urban core. I heard Mana has lot of empty space available for rent.

Hesitant at the 1.5 million in incentives as rarely does the county ever recapture any of that money

The incentives are usually waiving future tax bills….so the county certainly will capture taxes from 250 new jobs.

Telemundo’s HQ is in Unincorporated Miami Dade and the area will probably become part of Sweetwater.

There was talk of building a studio and soudstages in northwest Dade a few years ago. Pretty elaborate, major $. Seems a good time to dust off those plans.

It’s good to be confronted and not be indoctrinated and zombied out by CNN and MSNBC or should I say MSNDNC. Listen guys, look what ‘s happening.
Do you want the best for America or do you want to be ruled by Sharia Law or the Chinese repression.

It comes with the territory dude, not everything is about racism. I’m positive that the BET broadcasting headquarters in atlanta is overwhelmingly black too. And that’s okay.

That’s true. But you can also get a job at BET black or white because you speak English. If you don’t speak Spanish, good luck getting a job at Univision. Black or white.

Um maybe because it’s a Spanish-language channel. Why would they hire someone who doesn’t speak Spanish? Stupid comment.

Eh Univision is pretty racist. My uncle used to work for Deportes. They had to layoff some people and my uncle got laid off. Apparently his bosses were Mexicans and they laid off the Cubans but kept all the Mexicans, pretty messed up

Black latinos exist, nothing wrong with calling out anti-black behavior in latin communities especially labeling it “territory” as an excuse for being racist and exclusionary.
