For more than decade, Selymar Colón has been at the epicenter of multiplatform journalism, engaging Spanish-language audiences and the Hispanic community in the U.S. with trusted news and information. A digital pioneer, Colón championed the use of social media in the newsroom and created the first team of multimedia news producers to incorporate digital-only videos into the company’s news strategy.

Colón has produced coverage converging the best of television with digital storytelling. Coverage includes the 2010 Haiti earthquake, one of the first interviews with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor and the digital special “The Hispanics of the President.” Her efforts also contributed to the Univision News team winning awards for its digital coverage of the Humanitarian Crisis at the U.S.-Mexican border and TV news special “Meet the Candidates.”

Colón joined Univision in 2006 working across different roles and going up the ranks — from serving as producer for Sunday morning show, “Al Punto” hosted by award-winning journalist Jorge Ramos, to serving as director of digital integration and most recently as managing editor and senior director of digital news. She holds an M.S. in Investigative Journalism from Florida International University and a B.A. in Communications and Business from Lynn University.
