Univision to air the awards for first time.

The Latin Grammy awards will return to Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium for the second consecutive year and will air on the Univision network, the most watched Spanish language network in the United States, for the first time.

Since their inception, the awards have aired on CBS but have suffered disappointing ratings in recent years. This year's audience is widely expected to go up due to the show being broadcast on Univision, which consistently has higher ratings than all other networks in Latin-centric markets, including Los Angeles and New York.

The sixth annual Latin Grammys will air live on Nov. 3 from 8-11 p.m. nationwide and in some 100 countries. Awards will be given in 43 categories and nominees will be announced on Aug. 23 at The Music Box at Henry Fonda Theater in Hollywood.

The awards are produced by Univision in conjunction with the Latin Recording Academy. John Cossette will serve as consulting producer.
