Starting September 26, the Telemundo Station Group is adding a 30-minute 5 pm weekday newscast to 14 of its stations.
This is the second half-hour expansion in less than two years. Telemundo previously launched a 5:30 pm local newscast in November of 2014, kicking off a hiring spree to staff the new shows.
The new addition means there will be a change to the programming line-up in those stations. The 5 pm newscast will replace “The Best of Caso Cerrado.”
The following Telemundo stations will add the new 5 pm newscast: Telemundo 52 Los Angeles (KVEA), Telemundo 47 New York (WNJU), Telemundo 51 Miami (WSCV), Telemundo Houston (KTMD), Telemundo 39 Dallas-Fort Worth (KXTX), Telemundo Chicago (WSNS), Telemundo 48 Area de la Bahia (KSTS), Telemundo 60 San Antonio (KVDA), Telemundo Phoenix (KTAZ), Telemundo Tucson (KHRR), Telemundo 40 Rio Grande Valley (KTLM), Telemundo Denver (KDEN), Telemundo62 Philadelphia (WWSI) and Telemundo Las Vegas (KBLR).
