Univision-owned WLTV(TV), Channel 23, and co-owned TeleFutura station
WAMI(TV), both in Miami, have hired Luis Fernández-Rocha as general manager. He
had headed Telemundo's Miami O&O, WSC(TV).
Local observers had speculated such a move when Fernández-Rocha left the
Telemundo station earlier in the week without announcing plans.
He replaces Tomás Johansen, who announced his retirement last week.
Fernández-Rocha will remain based in Miami and will report to Co-Presidents
Thomas M. Arnost and Mike Wortsman.
May sweeps showed WLTV to be South Florida's most-watched station, and one of
the most-watched Spanish-language stations in the country.
