History

The history of Spanish-Language Television in the US spans more than 70 years. It began in the 1940s and 1950s with local radio and TV stations that transformed themselves into a nationwide network of affiliates, providing much-need news and programming to nations Latino community. Telemundoa historic Spanish-Language TV Network in the USrecently donated objects and documents to the Smithsonians National Museum of American History, as part of the museums effort to document the rich History of Spanish-Language Broadcasting. Donation, which is part of the museums Escuchame: History of Spanish-Language Broadcasting in US initiative, recognizes contributions to US Spanish-Language Broadcasting History from Network and its local stations: KVEA-TV, Los Angeles; WSCV-TV, Miami-Fort Lauderdale; WNJU-TV, New York; and Puerto Ricos WKAQ-TV. More than 40 current and former Telemundo employees contribute by participating in oral History interviews or contributing to collection of objects that reflect the material culture of broadcasting. By documenting contributions of Spanish-Language broadcasters and how they influence the National narrative, this collection and its companion oral histories will change the way the History of American Television is write, said Kathleen Franz, museums curator of American business History and chair of the Division of Work and Industry. Among the donated objects are two costumes from Tanairi, famous telenovela produced by Telemundo Puerto Rico, WKAQ-TV. Station was founded by El Mundo newspaper owner Angel Ramos in San Juan, Puerto Rico, in 1954, and is one of the primary industry pioneers in the development of Spanish-Language programming in the US. WKAQ-TVs popularity in Puerto Rico, combined with increased need for Spanish-Language programing in the US, led investors to take chance on building more Spanish-Language stations and networks. The Donations also include more than 30 press credentials reflecting Noticiero Telemundo anchor Jose Diaz-Balarts journalism career. There are scripts, photographs, microphone cubes and Florida Emmy Award that capture the work of Marilys Llanos, senior political reporter at Telemundo 51, WSCV-TV, and a pair of painted tennis shoes illustrated with personal and career highlights from Telemundo 52 KVEA-TV anchor Dunia Elvir. Suit coat, pocket squares and glasses represent Telemundo 47 WNJU-TV journalist Hector Aguilars on-air presence at the station and his life-long career in Spanish-Language radio and TV. We tell stories in Museum through objects, say Mireya Loza, curator in museums Division of Work and Industry. Without objects, we cant really talk about history because theres nothing to put in case. These press credentials represent part of a journey, in 1984, when Spanish-Language Network Television was really just starting and I was fortunate enough to be part of that, say Diaz-Balart, who began his career with former Spanish International Network. Those IDs are moments that will forever mean much more than a piece of paper. They, in a very real way, define Spanish-Language Television as it is today. Telemundo is currently owned by Comcast through NBCUniversal. Network is headquarters in Miami and owns 18 television stations across the country.

WSCV presently broadcasts 19 hours of locally produced news and talk programming each week; in addition, station produces half-hour entertainment and lifestyle program Acceso Total station launched its news department in 1987, when it debuted a half-hour 6: 00 pm newscast, titled Noticiero 51 las 6; it was anchored by a Cuban-born Lucy Pereda and Eduardo Arango. Pereda left WSCV following year to Co-anchor Univision's First morning program, Mundo Latino, alongside Frank Moro, Cuban telenovela actor who leave to return to acting in Mexican telenovelas. He was substituted by Jorge Ramos. WSCV hired Maria Montoya, former actress who had arrived in Miami as part of the Mariel boatlift in 1980, and Ambrosio Hernandez, who had worked at several Stations in Chicago, to complement the team, which includes weather anchor Angel Martin and sportscaster Rene Giraldo. Telemundo president Julio Rumbaut hired Montoya and Hernandez, both of whom would represent the longest-serving anchor team in the United States in any language, until Montoya was fired in late 2013; Giraldo later became sports anchor for Telemundo network. WSCV was position as a Cuban station in stark contrast to WLTV, which airs Mexican programming and was therefore perceived, in some circles, as less anti-Castro. In 1988, Alfredo Duran, who was recently hired as the station's general manager, announced that well-know WLTV reporter Alina Mayo Azze was hired by WSCV. Azze's herald arrival was diminished when Duran announced the hiring of WLTV main anchor Leticia Callava to Co-anchor station's 6: 00 and 11: 00 pm newscasts with Azze. Callava, regarded as the most respected news anchor on Spanish-language television, was fired by WLTV management shortly after Duran defected to Telemundo. Callava and Duran had become a couple at time, and this triggered a series of events that would change the Latin television landscape in Miami. Several news reporters and both Montoya and Hernandez bolt to WLTV as the station tried to reinvent itself. Under Duran's oversight, station's newscasts were retitled Noticentro 51, with both Azze and Callava as its lead anchors, becoming the first all-female anchor team on a Spanish-language newscast in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale market. Revamp would help WSCV's fortunes in local news and earn the station 12 Emmy Awards during the late 1980s. Two years later, in 1990, WSCV announced that Mayo Azze would depart station. Several months later, Mayo Azze was hired as anchor at WLTV. Argentine News anchor Nicolas Kasanzew, who became famous for covering the Falklands War for state-run network ATC, was then hired as Co-anchor of evening newscasts. Kasanzew was later removed as anchor, after Ambrosio Hernandez was re-hire by WSCV. The backstage drama between Callava and Hernandez was more intriguing than what viewers saw on the station's newscasts. It was rumor that each would count stories assigned to them to be on even ground.
