Univision has signed a new 10-year deal to keep the Latin Grammys through 2028.

The partnership, which also includes multi-platform rights, extends the initial deal the Spanish-language broadcaster first struck with the Latin Recording Academy in 2005.

“We are pleased to be the home of the Latin Grammys for another 10 years, to continue to grow our long-standing relationship with The Latin Recording Academy, and to celebrate excellence in Latin music,” said Randy Falco, president and CEO of UCI. “The decade-long structure of this agreement will provide more opportunities for two great brands to collaborate on making the live telecast of Latin music’s most celebrated night even more compelling for U.S. Hispanic audiences by deploying UCI’s innovative platforms to reach broader audiences.”

“The Latin Recording Academy, the predominant organization that supports and celebrates the hard work, excellence, and talent of Latin music creators and artists, will continue to excel with Univision,” added Gabriel Abaroa, Jr., president and CEO of The Latin Recording Academy. “We are elated to give our empowering mission a platform from which to thrive and grow. Music is more alive than ever, and Latin music has shown again and again its worldwide impact and tremendous exportability.”

The Latin Grammys recognize outstanding Latin music by honoring the achievements of international music professionals in 49 categories for work recorded in either Spanish or Portuguese.

This year’s 19th annual Latin Grammys will be held on November 15 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. They’ll air live on Univision.
