Entravision’s KMCC becomes Azteca América affiliate in Las Vegas

Entravision - Azteca

Entravision has struck an affiliation agreement with Azteca América for its Las Vegas station KMCC-TV.

Azteca América, now owned by HC2 Network Inc., a subsidiary of HC2 Holdings, Inc., is looking to expand distribution of its network.

Starting this week, KMCC-TV Channel 34 began airing Azteca América programming.

The station was previously a MundoFox/MundoMax affiliate.

Entravision bought the independent station for $3.75 million in March.

In early April, Entravision executed a massive wave of layoffs nationwide. The company’s Univision-affiliated local newscast at KINC Las Vegas was effectively shut down and “shipped” to El Paso.

    Asi van de horribles las cosas en Univision, que ENT prefiere a AzAme antes que al producto emitido por El Doral.
    Painful to witness such demise.
    Worse, if we feel for those colleagues and their turbulent future.
