CNN Latino, a Spanish-language broadcast effort aimed at the U.S. Hispanic market, is shutting down after a year on the air because it hasn't brought in as much money as expected, Portada reported Wednesday.
Calling CNN Latino "a bold effort" to show the network's commitment to the U.S. Hispanic market, CNN spokeswoman Isabel Bucaram said in Spanish that 'During 2013 we learned a lot and will use that knowledge to continue to innovate and evolve our presence in the Hispanic community in the United States."

CNN en Espanol, a translated version of the parent network's programming that broadcasts primarily in Latin America, will stay on the air.
