For example, new sponsor Cricket Wireless will back a series of Facebook Live streams before, during and after the show featuring Telemundo talent. The day of the show and the day after, Cricket will also run custom Snapchat interstitials featuring Telemundo’s Ximena Duque and David Chocarro.

“We are fortunate to have an incredible lineup of sponsors who value what Premios Tu Mundo delivers, ultimate fan engagement,” said Laura Molen, executive VP, Lifestyle and NBCU Telemundo Enterprises Advertising Sales, NBCUniversal. “This year’s annual award show will be another great example of how Telemundo can work with advertisers to align their messaging with compelling live event programming in new and unique ways.”
