NBC News planning Latino-targeted site

NBC News is launching NBCLatino.com sometime in 2012, reports Broadcasting & Cable.

The new site will be an English-language news site geared toward a Hispanic audience.

The venture, when launched, will be the first time an English-language broadcast network has launched this type of property. CNN, meanwhile, launched CNNenEspanol.com in November.

At this point, NBCLatino.com displays a simple coming soon page and redirects users to a Tumblr blog (that, at the time of this writing, seems to be having some issues with its layout).
