Univision Communications Inc.-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 Communications Group Inc.'s Miami owned-and-operated station, 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.

The May sweeps showed WLTV to be South Florida's most-watched station and one of
the most-watched Spanish-language stations in the country.
