With the aid of three community shareholder families, Telelatino Network president Aldo Di Felice (pictured) completed the buyback of the 50.5 percent interest in TLN that had been acquired by Corus Entertainment more than 17 years ago.
Moving forward, the company will go under the banner TLN Media Group. TLN Media Group runs seven specialty TV services, with English, Italian, and Spanish language options. The company’s flagship channel, TLN TV, was launched in 1984 as a Spanish and Italian general interest channel. TLN also operates the Canadian local versions of Mediaset Italia and Univision.
Di Felice commented, “The Di Battista, Rosati and Joseph Vitale families are well known for their business success, community involvement and charitable efforts. They were early investors in TLN and have remained committed supporters for 3 decades. I am pleased to partner with them and continue to develop TLN Media Group into an even more influential Canadian independent multicultural media organization.”
