History

The Station first sign on air on September 25 1962; at its launch, station served as one of the founding own-and-operated stations of the Spanish International Network. In the late 1960s, KMEX broadcast Escuela, educational program that aired four times a week, which taught basic English to viewers of all nationalities. The program was hosted by Ginger Cory, teacher for Los Angeles Unified School District. Students mail write exercises to Cory for grading. Many in Southern California's non-English speaking community come to consider Cory as a friend and counselor. In early 2014, Univision announced a deal to broadcast Spanish-language Los Angeles Rams programming, including pre-season games and studio programs. It marks the first time that Univision has ever entered into a media rights deal involving the National Football League. This programming will air on KMEX, and sister stations KFTR, KABE-CD, and KBTF-CD.

News operation

KMEX-DT presently broadcasts 17 hours of locally produced newscasts each week; in addition, station produces a sports highlight program titled Accion Deportiva 34, which airs Saturdays and Sundays at 11: 15 PM, immediately following abbreviated 15-minute editions of its 11 PM newscast. KMEX's News, branded as Noticias 34, is the top-rat newscast among Spanish-speaking viewers in Southern California and often draws more viewers than any English-language newscasts. In 2005, Noticias 34 led ratings in the 18-34 and 18-49 demographic at 6 PM for the last twelve years, remarkable feat for any television station. Part of the reason for this is that the Latino population in Southern California is younger than the non-Latino population. KMEX has long been known for its news coverage. News director Ruben Salazar was killed by a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Deputy in 1970 when covering the Chicano Moratorium. Its news feature, El 15 % de Los Estados Unidos, which reports about the impact of Latinos on the United States, won a Peabody Award in 2005, and the station has won its share of Emmys and Golden Mics in the Los Angeles market. While many stations in the region have begun producing local newscasts and other locally produced programming in High Definition, KMEX did not begin carrying its newscasts in format until January 1 2010 as part of the Network's control National conversion to HD operations. KMEX operates fully equipped Bell Jetranger ENG helicopter for its aerial coverage of breaking news, but the contract to lease the helicopter expires in mid-2008. In 2008, Washington Post compared Southern California's English-language newscasts with KMEX's Spanish newscasts and conclude, sharpest coverage of state and local issues-government, politics, immigration, labor, economics, health care-is now found on Spanish-language TV. The article also quotes Josh Kun, Communications professor at University of Southern California who closely follows Spanish language television as saying, there's no comparison in coverage. For people here, there are two places to look for better news: BBC News and Spanish-language news. Article add, but the most serious complaint about Spanish News is that reporting and commentary often feel more like advocacy than traditional journalism. It's fair point, and one that those who work in Spanish News don't dispute. Two stations' immigration coverage is deeply sympathetic to undocumented immigrants, with on-air reporters encouraging viewers to join National immigration rallies. Macin, KMEX general manager, note that her station's philosophy is Su lado. On May 29 2015, station announced it was reformatting its morning newscast from Primera Edicion to Primera Hora in order to target its younger audience. The newscast would remain in its same timeslot from 5 am to 7 am and will maintain its existing on-air anchors and reporters. The Reformatted newscast made its debut on June 1. In January 2018, station debuted a new set for its newscasts.
