mun2’s La Conexión ‘SHINEs’

mun2 television’s La Conexión won a 2004 Media Project “SHINE (Sexual Health in Entertainment) Award” in the Spanish-language talk/variety category, the network said Tuesday.

The SHINE Awards honor nationally and internationally televised films and episodic programs for accurate and honest portrayals of adolescent sexual-health issues.

The Media Project hosted the 20th annual SHINE Awards ceremony this past Saturday at the House of Blues in Hollywood.

The network described La Conexión as “a talk/variety show that airs Monday-Friday at 10:30 p.m. and features a broad variety of topics relevant to urban living -- including extreme sports, fashion, art, people, lifestyles, cars, technology and places-- with a West Coast twist.”

“We are extremely proud of this recognition and of our great team of professionals, who work hard every day to bring relevant programming to our viewers,” mun2 vice president of programming and promotions Yolanda Foster said in a prepared statement.
