San Diego’s second-oldest broadcast television station will end locally produced news programming and become an outlet for Spanish-language shows according to news reports.
XETV-TV Channel 6, which began broadcasting to San Diego from Mexico in 1953, will end news programming March 31 in the wake of loss of its CW Network affiliation to KFMB-TV Channel 8, according to AdWeek.
On May 31 the station will begin transmitting programming for the Mexican Galavisión cable network, a division of Univision, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
“CW made a business decision and I have nothing but respect and admiration for CW,” said Chuck Dunning, general manager of XETV-TV, last week.
