Univision has returned KTNQ Los Angeles (1020) to Spanish news/talk with a new lineup that offers more than 14 consecutive hours of local programming. Following a 5-hour morning drive show, the former sports outlet will air a series of one-hour shows from 11am-6pm, covering subjects important to the market’s large local Latino community, including sports, community empowerment, politics, health and personal finance.
"For over 60 years, Univision Los Angeles has been the voice of the Latino community in the City of Angels and we are proud to continue that tradition with the launch of the only Spanish-language talk radio station in the United States with over 14 hours of consecutive local programming," Luis Patino, Univision L.A. President and General Manager, said in a news release. "A radio station that informs and empowers the Latino community about the issues that affect our daily lives is more important than ever as we head into an election year, both in Los Angeles and across the country."
KTNQ previously aired sports programming as an affiliate of TUDN (formerly Univision Deportes Radio) since April 2017. It is the Spanish language flagship of the Los Angeles Dodgers. KTNQ’s return to news/talk comes after crosstown Lotus sports KWKW (1330) became L.A.’s new TUDN affiliate, following the shuttering of ESPN Deportes Radio.
KTNQ will stream live on Univision’s Uforia mobile app.
