Fernando Acosta is zooming up the ranks. Earlier this year, he was named vice president of Pappas’ Hispanic television stations group. Now, Fernando has been promoted to senior vice president of Tu Vision Stations Group – a new network launched by Pappas Telecasting Companies on the five stations that ceased airing Azteca América programming on July 1st.
Fernando will oversee station operations, programming and affiliate relations. He’ll also stay on as general manager of KAZA-54 in Los Angeles, which will carry TuVision programming when its contract ends with Azteca América in 2008.
