A company spokesperson refused to comment on the move or give details about the San Diego station launch, but inside sources confirm Calderón’s next assignment is the Telemundo O&O that will be housed at KNSD, where he’ll report to NBC 7’s VP of News Greg Dawson.
Telemundo has already listed a job posting for news director in Denver.
Calderón has been news director at KDEN since November of 2013.
This would mark a return to San Diego for Calderón, who worked as an anchor/producer of the Entravision-owned Univision station in the city from 2011 to 2013.
Entravision also owned the Telemundo affiliate in San Diego for over 20 years. Telemundo opted to not renew the affiliate deal with Entravision to launch its own news operations in San Diego.
