‘Today’ to air Hispanic America series

NBC News' Today program has announced plans to air We The People, a special week-long series about

Hispanic America.

Set to begin Monday, the series will cover a wide range of issues facing the Hispanic community and examine the successes and challenges of Hispanics across the United States, NBC said in a release.

The segments will include reports from Today correspondents such as Natalie Morales, Carl Quintanilla, Maria Celeste Arraras, Dr. Nancy Snyderman, Miguel Almaguer, Kerry Sanders and Michelle Caruso-Cabrera.

The series will be featured online at WeThePeople.todayshow.com, where Today's correspondents will share their personal reflections on the stories they covered, the network noted.

NBC News began the We the People series in February on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams.
