KUDF, the Azteca America affiliate in Tucson, is preparing to launch the market’s only locally-produced Spanish language newscast. Inside Tucson Business has details on the newscast, which comes on the heels of an ownership change at the station:
Viewers should expect to see frequent “Mexico regional programming, mostly from the north” with both hard news and useful information for travelers, said Roberto Lemen Meyer, 44, a Hermosillo businessman and principal of the new ownership group, LM Media Group.
The 30-minute local newscast is planned to air at 5:30 p.m. following Azteca America’s half-hour network newscast. As a precursor to the launch, KUDF is currently running five-minute, locally-produced “news capsules” at the end of the network newscast.
