This month we announced a unique Airbnb Experience that will bring guests behind the scenes of Univision’s Los Angeles studios with anchor and host Leon Krauze – and benefit California journalism students at the same time.
For $100, guests will have an opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes tour of Univision’s Los Angeles studios and learn first-hand what it takes to put a newscast together. Guests will try their hand at reading from a teleprompter on set, with the option of doing an entertainment, news or weather segment. As a parting gift, guests will be given a tape of their “news segment” to commemorate the unique Experience.
“We are excited to partner with Univision to offer Angelenos this one of a kind Experience,” said Connie Llanos, Airbnb’s Public Policy Manager in Los Angeles. “Airbnb Experiences offer locals and travelers new ways to explore and discover the City and this partnership with Univision is part of a broader commitment to expand our offerings to the Latino community here in Los Angeles.”
“Giving access to information and resources is how we help to ensure we are positively impacting the communities we serve.”
Luis Patiño, President and General Manager of Univision Los Angeles
The “Behind the Scenes with Univision LA” Experience is a Social Impact Experience where 100 percent of proceeds go directly to a non-profit organization. All proceeds of this Experience will go to the Latino Communications Institute at Cal State University Fullerton to help build a pipeline of talented bilingual communication professionals. Airbnb will match the money raised from the Experience and make a donation to the university.
“Giving access to information and resources is how we help to ensure we are positively impacting the communities we serve,” said Luis Patiño, President and General Manager of Univision Los Angeles. “This is a unique opportunity to invite our audience into our home and see what it takes to prepare each day for one of LA’s most trusted newscasts and we are excited to partner with Airbnb on this customer experience where the community will have never before access into our newsroom.”
