Telemundo TV launches in Nashville June 12

Joins three radio stations, nine newspapers, and one other TV station broadcasting from Nashville in Spanish

According to this article in the Tennessean, Spanish-language network television station Telemundo will be added to Nashville's media lineup.

"Channel 4 will begin broadcasting Telemundo, the nation's second-highest rated Spanish network, on a digital frequency on June 12. The station also is in final negotiations with Comcast and Charter Communications to have the channel added to its digital cable systems."

"The station would be the second in Spanish in the Nashville area, joining Channel 42, which carries programming under a contract with Univision subsidiary Telefutura. Univision, the nation's top-rated Spanish network, also is available on local cable systems" but is not broadcast through a local station.

"The Telemundo affiliate will begin by picking up programming from the national network, but eventually the station will start producing some of its own news and programming, said Hale. Besides Telefutura, Telemundo will join at least three Spanish-language radio stations and nine Spanish newspapers."
