KWHY-22, MundoFox’s flagship station in Los Angeles will be moving to a new location in Mid-City L.A. before the end of this year.
Currently housed in the downtown Los Angeles Center Studios, KWHY’s news operation has to vacate the leased premises by October.
Meruelo Media, which owns the station, has purchased a building on S. La Brea and W. Pico and is currently refurbishing the property to fit the growing needs of the company.
According to Meruelo Media President and COO Otto Padrón, once construction is finished, the new state-of-art facility “will house 3 large sound stages equipped with top of the line digital HD equipment.”
The expansion and building of studios is part of the new media company’s plans to enter the entertainment production business.
