KTAZ, the Telemundo owned station for Phoenix and Tucson, AZ, has added two hours of local weekend news to its lineup.
Starting Saturday, the station will air a live half hour of news at 4:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The shows will be anchored by Daniel Aguirre with Ivan Valenzuela anchoring sports.
“The investment in local news, resources, personnel and cutting-edge technology demonstrates our commitment to inform and serve the local Spanish-speaking community, which has been traditionally underserved with local news,” Araceli De León, president and regional general manager, Telemundo Southwest said in a statement.
Telemundo also said the station is building a new set and hiring “a dozen additional staff members to deliver local team coverage from breaking news events and live reports from multiple locations.”
