KVEA, WSCV, WNJU Items Are Going to the Smithsonian

By Chris Ariens 

The National Museum of American History, part of the Smithsonian, will create a new exhibit objects from Telemundo stations KVEA in Los Angeles, WSCV in Miami and WNJU in New York.

Telemundo says the items “reflect the contributions of the network and its employees to the story of Spanish-language television.”

NBC Nightly News and Noticiero Telemundo anchor Jose Diaz-Balart is donating 31 press credentials representing his journalism career and Marilys Llanos, lead reporter at WSCV, is donating scripts, photographs, microphone cubes and one of her Florida Emmy Awards. Telemundo anchors, reporters, engineers, traffic directors, camera operators, art directors and sales and marketing staff have been interviewed as part of an oral history.

The items will be donated during a breakfast reception Wednesday morning at the museum in Washington, D.C. timed to coincide with Hispanic Heritage Month, which begins Sunday.
