Telemundo Las Vegas to Expand Newscasts

telemundo las vegasKBLR, the Telemundo station in Las Vegas, has announced a new investment in its local newscasts: the station will hire new people and bring production of the 6 and 11 p.m. broadcasts back in-house.

The two newscasts were previously produced in Phoenix, with the 6 p.m. newscast broadcast live and the 11 p.m. newscast pre-taped. Beginning this week, as production shifts back to Las Vegas, both newscasts will be live.

The station will also hire more than a dozen new people, including anchor Beatriz Moncayo and weathercaster Leticia Castro.

“By investing in live local news, we know we will do an even better job serving our viewers,” Telemundo Las Vegas station manager Ramiro Lopez said in a statement. “We are excited to introduce our new team to the Spanish-speaking community in Las Vegas and know they will continue to connect and inform our viewers with the most relevant local news, information and weather.”
