Radio One Launches Telemundo Affiliate in Indianapolis
INDIANAPOLIS -- March 5, 2013
On March 11, 2013, WDNI will become a Telemundo affiliate in Indianapolis and
will be the only local Spanish-language broadcast station in the market.
Telemundo Indy will broadcast on over-the-air channel 19 and will also be
available to all subscribers of Comcast, Brighthouse and AT&T U-verse, giving
the station full coverage of Indianapolis' Hispanic population. WDNI
TV-Channel 19, will offer Telemundo's full line-up of high-quality original
Spanish-language programming, including novelas, news, sports, entertainment,
and specials, serving the market's growing Hispanic community and offering
advertisers a powerful new platform to reach this important demographic
“We are excited to bring Telemundo's proven programming to Indy's
Spanish-speaking community which has experienced significant growth over the
past several years. We plan to complement Telemundo’s national programming
with locally produced content to deliver a truly relevant product to our
viewers, and soon, locally produced news," said Chuck Williams, General
Manager of Telemundo Indy, a veteran broadcaster, who also serves as Vice
President and Market Manager for Radio One’s four highly successful
Indianapolis Radio stations (WNOU FM, WHHH FM, WTLC FM and WTLC AM). "This is
the first time in six years that local advertising will be available in
Spanish," added Williams.
"Telemundo is pleased to expand its footprint in the Indianapolis market and
we are excited by WDNI’s plans to fully serve the emerging Hispanic community
with local programming and community events to complement our strong line-up
of programming,” said Ann Gaulke, Senior Vice President, Affiliate Relations,
for the Telemundo Network.
Telemundo Indy has already formed strong strategic partnerships with some key
Hispanic individuals and organizations, including the Hispanic Business
Council. A Community Advisory Board, comprised of Hispanic leaders in the
education, health, immigration, and media fields, is being organized to help
guide the station's development in the areas of community outreach and local
programming, and will provide the "voice of the customer," especially critical
during the station's first year.
