The big day has arrived for Telemundo San Diego as the brand new owned-and-operated station goes live tomorrow, July 1, taking over the network signal previously broadcast by Entravision as Telemundo 33.
Telemundo 20 will kick off its programming at 6 pm with a half-hour program showing the final preparations for the launch of the station’s newscasts two days later.
Telemundo hired Lizzet López and Guadalupe Venegas to anchor the newscasts. They’ll be joined by weather anchor Ana Cristina Sánchez, sports anchor MJ Acosta, who will also anchor sports for NBC7, and multimedia journalists Leticia Estrada, Lissette Martínez, Anlleyn Venegas and Rigo Villalobos.
The station will air four local 30-minute newscasts Monday to Friday at 5, 5:30, 6 and 11 pm PT.
That same day, Entravision, which lost the Telemundo affiliation earlier this year, is launching Azteca América branded newscasts on channel 33, under the new banner “Noticias Ya Frontera.”
