SEOUL, June 25, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) announced today that season two of its original docu-series, “LG Presents: The Rivalries” on LG Channels has received recognition from multiple international award programs, including the MUSE Creative Awards, the Webby Awards and the Telly Awards.

As an official partner of the NCAA®, “LG Presents: The Rivalries” series is available for free on the NCAA Championships Channel (Channel 100) via LG Channels on LG Smart TVs. Each episode highlights a different college sports rivalry as told through interviews, historical moments and the most recent game footage. The series was created and produced in partnership with Shoot To Kill NYC and HSAd USA.

“LG is focused on bringing unique content to its LG Smart TV owners and sharing more ‘Life’s Good’ moments with our consumers,” said Jeannie Lee, director of Corporate Marketing at LG Electronics USA. “In developing The Rivalries, we noticed that so much already existed to cover top-tier Division I college sports and men’s competitions. We wanted to leverage LG Channels to spotlight student-athletes competing in rivalries across emerging sports, bringing attention to all of the smaller but no less mighty rivalries that exist today in other college divisions. These awards are a testament to the impact of The Rivalries and the dedication of our partners who have shared LG’s vision and brought this series to life.”

      New Manufacturing Plant to Produce Electric Powertrain Components for
      General Motors from 2023, Create an Estimated 400 New Jobs

      SEOUL, April 20, 2022 — LG Magna e-Powertrain, a joint venture (JV) between LG Electronics (LG) and Magna International Inc. (Magna), celebrated the groundbreaking of its new plant in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico. Scheduled for completion in 2023, the new facility will produce inverters, motors and on-board chargers to support General Motors’ new electric vehicle (EV) platform. The 260,000 square foot plant will be LG Magna e-Powertrain’s first production base in North America and is expected to create around 400 new jobs.
      “Strengthening our JV’s ability to develop and produce advanced EV sub-assemblies, the Ramos site represents one of the key pillars of LG’s long-term strategy to become the auto industry’s go-to innovation partner,” said Eun Seok-hyun, president of the LG Vehicle component Solutions Company.
      “This new facility demonstrates the continuing growth of LG Magna e-Powertrain,” said Cheong Won-suk, chief executive officer of LG Magna e-Powertrain. “The JV’s ongoing success will enable us to better support our customers with best-in-class components for the next generation of electric vehicles, and help us to expand our presence in the fast-growing global EV market.”
      The groundbreaking event, which took place on April 19, was attended by executives from LG Magna e-Powertrain, LG Electronics, Magna, General Motors and local government officials.
      “In the space of just over one year, we’ve added an expansion agreement, identified a strategic location to support our customer, and are now in the process of realizing our plans,” said Tom Rucker, president of Magna Powertrain. “The building of a new facility is a true testament to the strength of this collaboration and commitment in delivering innovative solutions to customers to meet their challenges. It also reinforces our active participation in the electrification transformation whether by eDrive sub systems or full systems.”
      General Motors is the foundational customer for the new facility, and it will play a key role in GM’s journey to build a strong, scalable, sustainable and North America-focused EV supply chain.
      First announced in late 2020, LG Magna e-Powertrain combines LG’s expertise in developing components for motors, inverters, and on-board chargers with Magna’s prowess in electric powertrain systems and automotive manufacturing. The joint venture is expected to fuel both companies’ growth in the highly competitive EV industry.

      LG USA’s latest collaboration in their year-long Only on OLED content campaign is a three-part content series featuring popular Kansas City Chiefs football tight end Travis Kelce and a look at his ambitions not only for the upcoming football season which kicked off this past week but also off the field as a fashion brand founder, business owner, and philanthropist.

      The three-part series is airing on
      link hidden, please login to view with special cut downs from the episodes available on and promoted across the .
      Episode 1 of “Travis Kelce, Only on OLED” which debuted last week, answers the question, “What’s next for Travis Kelce?” Accompanied by his close friends, the series chronicles Kelce’s next big idea, “365 Days of Travis,” a calendar allowing his fans to get more of him every day of the year. Throughout the series, viewers will see the calendar come to life from concept to photo shoot, and ultimately the big unveil.

      “Partnering with LG in the lead up to my season was a natural fit,” said Kelce. “There is no better way to watch football or any sport than on an LG OLED TV. I was stunned by the picture quality, its ability to capture the speed of sports in intense, crisp detail and deliver an experience that made you feel like you were at the game. Working with them on this series also let me show people who I am off the field. I appreciate LG giving me the opportunity to share that with others.”

      “To highlight LG OLED’s ability to deliver an unrivaled sports viewing experience at home, it was only fitting that our next Only on OLED collaboration be with one of football’s biggest champions as the pro and college football seasons get underway,” said Peggy Ang, LG’s Senior Vice President of Marketing. “With our Only on OLED activations, we are bringing to our consumers unique content that goes beyond the game and highlights the stories behind today’s biggest athletes off the field.”

      The Only on OLED campaign focuses on key consumer passions in sports, movies and gaming that are drivers for TV purchases. To reach consumers, the campaign features unparalleled access to unique events and moments best enjoyed on LG OLED TVs. Earlier this summer, LG released Hangin’ With Kuz, a social media series featuring basketball star Kyle Kuzma which offered fans a glimpse into his new home and off-court passions. The program kicked off earlier this year with a live celebrity gaming showdown between multi-platinum-selling music mogul DJ Khaled and world-renowned actor Megan Fox.
