mun2, the modern general entertainment cable channel for Latinos, won two Imagen Awards for "Combate Americas" and "Larry Hernandez: El Presidente" at the 29th Annual Imagen Awards last Friday night.

"The Imagen Foundation is an organization committed to recognizing the achievements of Latinos in the entertainment and communications industries and we are extremely honored to receive this recognition from them," said mun2 president, Rubén Mendiola. "At mun2, we are committed to super-serving the Latino community and these two award-winning programs are a reflection of our commitment and what is yet to come as we continue the evolution of our network."
