Today is another big day in the career of Rolando Nichols, news anchor at KWHY Channel 22 in Los Angeles and Spanish-language play-by-play man for the Angels on ESPN Deportes.
Fox International Channels (FIC) and the RCN Television Group (RCN) have announced he will host a national newscast on MundoFox, the U.S. Spanish-language broadcast network launching this summer. Nichols will continue to handle local nightly 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts at KWHY, where he holds the title of vice-president of news and production.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity to be able to deliver more global, in-depth coverage of the pressing issues affecting Hispanics in this country,” says Nichols. “We understand our community and know that they need options. I feel honored to have been chosen to be one of the faces representing our culture on MundoFox.”
FishbowlLA isn’t entirely clear on how Nichols manages to juggle those nightly newscasts with his Angels broadcast duties. But congrats to the Arizona State University grad, who also received a Peabody award for his in-depth series about the past, present and future of the U.S. Hispanic community.
