Time Warner Cable was honored Wednesday for its commitment to the Hispanic community.
The company received the "Leadership in Hispanic TV" award at the annual Hispanic TV Summit in midtown Manhattan.
The company was applauded for leading the way in producing and acquiring content specifically geared to the Hispanic community.
Here in the city, Time Warner Cable launched NY1 Noticias, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.
It is the city's first and still the only local 24-hour Spanish language local news channel.
In addition, on Tuesday, the company celebrated the anniversary of Time Warner Cable Deportes, the country’s first Spanish-language regional sports network, based in Los Angeles.
Melinda Witmer, the company's executive vice president and chief video and content officer, accepted the accolades on behalf of the company.
"I can't think of another award that I may cherish more than the one being bestowed upon us by Broadcasting and Cable and Multichannel News in recognizing our work in this 2013 award for leadership in Hispanic television," Witmer said.
Time Warner Cable is the parent company of NY1.
