UNIVISION'S CHABELI BECOMES THE HIGHEST-RATED SPECIAL ON SPANISH-LANGUAGE TELEVISION

 MIAMI, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the NHSI (Nielsen Hispanic Station Index) Los Angeles overnights, the premier of the 'Chabeli' show received the highest rating for a special in the history of Spanish-language television. The internationally famous host and daughter of acclaimed superstar Julio Iglesias, featured as first-time guests "ranchero" singer Vicente Fernandez, his son Alejandro, and popular Latin "sex symbol" Bibi Gaytan.
 In Los Angeles the special garnered an amazing 31.1 Nielsen rating, nearly tripling the program within the same time period on Spanish- language broadcaster Telemundo.
 Two of the most celebrated Latin artists of today were spotlighted on the Chabeli show. Bibi Gaytan, the young and beautiful actress/ singer revealed her formula for a successful and growing career as an entertainer and disclosed intimate secrets about her highly publicized relationship with actor Eduardo Capetillo.
 Chabeli also visited the private ranch of legendary mariachi Vicente Fernandez and his son Alejandro, where thousands of viewers got a close-up look at the life of these two glorified Latin performers.
 "The success of the show results from Chabeli's candid style of interviewing and her ability to invite straightforward and genuine conversation." "She showed that she is much more than the daughter of a famous superstar, but a well-rounded and informed woman of the 90s," said four-time Emmy winner Fernan Martinez, executive producer of the Chabeli show.
 "We at Univision are thrilled with the success of the Chabeli show and welcome the opportunity to foster new and exciting talent for Spanish-language television," said President and Chief Operating Officer Ray Rodriguez.
