KDTV-14’s 6 pm newscast was the November sweeps leader among 25- to 54-year-olds, beating all the Bay Area English-language stations. It’s a first for the Univision station.
Joe Garofoli, from the San Francisco Chronicle, points to an “evolving media landscape,” where there’s an exodus of English-language news consumers from TV and print to online, while ethnic news outlets continue to grow.
Well, that’s nothing new… that’s been happening for many years. And while there’s downsizing in English-language media, Spanish-language media, which is now in many cases part of the mainstream media, is expanding its news operations and its reach.
Important to note: Telemundo eliminated their local newscast in the Bay Area. They currently have one crew submit stories that are part of a regional newscast, broadcast from the Dallas Telemundo production center.
