Spanish-Language Program Back on the Airwaves

Scott Olson reports for the Indianapolis Business Journal that a local Hispanic television newscast is back on the air, less than six months after the parent of WISH-TV Channel 8 pulled the plug on him when it couldn’t reach a new agreement with Univision.

Marco Dominguez, a native of Venezuela, returned to the television airwaves on 30 April. Besides co-anchor Veronica Millan, his staff consists of three production people, an administrative assistant and two part-time sales associates.

They tape the half-hour show at 9 a.m. Monday through Friday followed by a 30-minute interview segment featuring a prominent member of the Hispanic community. Each day’s newscast is available to view on demand for the next 72 hours.

Thanks to about a dozen corporate and small business advertisers, in addition to a core group of investors, Olsen notes, Dominguez again is delivering the news in Spanish to the city’s Hispanic population.
