The NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations today announced it completed acquisition of KTLM-TV, the Telemundo affiliate licensed to Rio Grande City, Texas, serving the Harlingen-Weslaco-Brownsville area.
Effective today, KTLM becomes the 17th Spanish-language station in the Telemundo Station Group division of NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations.
Known as Telemundo 40, it serves the Rio Grande Valley located in the southernmost tip of South Texas.
The station currently produces a 5 and 10 pm local newscast 7 days a week, in addition to a daily weekday entertainment show.
According to the company, this acquisition is the latest in a series of investments NBCUniversal has made to serve viewers and strengthen Telemundo stations across the division.
