On March 11, 2013, WDNI will become a Telemundo affiliate in Indianapolis. Telemundo Indy will broadcast on over-the-air channel 19 and will also be available to all subscribers of Comcast, Brighthouse and AT&T U-verse, giving the station full coverage of Indianapolis’ Hispanic population. WDNI TV-Channel 19, will offer Telemundo’s full line-up of Spanish-language programming, including novelas, news, sports, entertainment, and specials, serving the market’s growing Hispanic community and offering advertisers a powerful new platform to reach this important demographic segment.
“We are excited to bring Telemundo’s proven programming to Indy’s Spanish-speaking community which has experienced significant growth over the past several years. We plan to complement Telemundo’s national programming with locally produced content to deliver a truly relevant product to our viewers, and soon, locally produced news,” said Chuck Williams, General Manager of Telemundo Indy, a veteran broadcaster, who also serves as Vice President and Market Manager for Radio One’s four highly successful Indianapolis Radio stations (WNOU FM, WHHH FM, WTLC FM and WTLC AM). “This is the first time in six years that local advertising will be available in Spanish,” added Williams.
“Telemundo is pleased to expand its footprint in the Indianapolis market and we are excited by WDNI’s plans to fully serve the emerging Hispanic community with local programming and community events to complement our strong line-up of programming,” said Ann Gaulke, Senior Vice President, Affiliate Relations, for the Telemundo Network.
