Yahoo Inc. and Telemundo announced plans to combine their U.S. Spanish-language websites Wednesday, a move they hope will help capture a larger part of a rapidly expanding Latino online audience.

The new site, Telemundo.yahoo.com, will blend Yahoo's en Espaņol's e-mail, search and music services with access to content from the juicy telenovelas and entertainment that attract Telemundo.com's audience.

Should this news make it to frontpage?

More "economic" than "webmaster" news IMHO.

This is a major integration of content and Yahoo is combining with the leading Hispanic portal. That's pretty big webmaster news for those that target these markets.

Yahoo does not have Hispanic roots - Telemundo does although the roots are mainly Puerto Rican.

But Telemundo is much smaller than Univision - the leader in TV/Radio/Internet/Music for the Hispanic market. So I think Yahoo and Telemundo needed each other.
