The Telemundo Station Group is launching a new, two-hour weekday newscast called Noticias Telemundo Texas that will air across five Texas DMAs, beginning September 26.
The regional morning newscast will air Monday to Friday from 5 to 7 a.m. Central on Telemundo KXTX in Dallas-Fort Worth, KTMD in Houston, KVDA in San Antonio, KTLM in Harlingen-McAllen and KTDO in El Paso. Telemundo’s hoyDía national morning show will air an hour later at 7 a.m., instead of 6 a.m., in the markets that will air the new morning newscast.
The anchor team and reporter roster for Noticias Telemundo Texas will be announced soon. The station group also said the Telemundo stations airing the show are currently hiring for behind camera and on-camera roles—and asked anyone interested to “Please visit NBCUniversal’s Careers portal for more information.”
“Local news is—and will continue to be—the most trusted source of information that audiences turn to when they want to know what is happening in their communities,” said Ozzie Martinez, svp of News, Digital and Standards for the Telemundo Station Group. “With the launch of our new Texas morning newscast, we are doubling down on our commitment to give our audiences the best in class news they deserve—and elevating our storytelling by presenting the news that is driving the news cycle in Texas and explaining why these stories matter for each community.”
