LA Anchor, Sportscaster Rolando Nichols Set to Expand National Reach

Today is another big day in the career of Rolando Nichols, news anchor at KWHY Channel 22 in Los Angeles and Spanish-language play-by-play man for the Angels on ESPN Deportes.

Fox International Channels (FIC) and the RCN Television Group (RCN) have announced he will host a national newscast on MundoFox, the U.S. Spanish-language broadcast network launching this summer. Nichols will continue to handle local nightly 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts at KWHY, where he holds the title of vice-president of news and production.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to be able to deliver more global, in-depth coverage of the pressing issues affecting Hispanics in this country,” says Nichols. “We understand our community and know that they need options. I feel honored to have been chosen to be one of the faces representing our culture on MundoFox.”

Former KMEX Anchor Now An Emerging Media Mogul

Fox News Latino posted a nice profile of former KMEX- Univision 34 anchor Rolando Nichols earlier this week. Nichols left his job as an award-winning anchor nearly four years ago to start his own media business–Centro Net Productions.

How’s he doing now? Quite well apparently. Centro Net Productions started as a media consultation business, but was successful enough that Nichols now owns his own studio. He produces content for Univision Network, Fox Sports, ESPN, and KWHY Canal 22 and has 30 employees and a network of freelancers.

“There was a time when I got tired of making wealthy people even richer with my talent and I thought that it was time for me to create a business for my own financial stability and to provide jobs to other families as well,” Nichols says.
