Churchill Media to Launch Azteca America Television Station in OregonSalem-News.com
Radio properties of Churchill Media, LLC in Salem/Portland and the Northwest present unique cross-promotion opportunities.
(LOS ANGELES) - Azteca America, the fastest-growing Hispanic television network in the U.S., is proud to announce a new affiliate for Portland.
As of July 30th, Azteca America will be transmitted on KWVT, channel 52. Churchill Media, LLC was founded in 2004 in Eugene, Oregon, to serve the growing Spanish-language market in Lane County. It currently has radio stations in Yakima, Eugene, Portland and Boise.
"We welcome Churchill Media in Portland and look forward to additional future opportunities," said Luis J. Echarte, Chairman of Azteca America. "I am a firm believer in the strong cross-promotional benefits of radio in conjunction with television."
Portland is referred to as a top "hypergrowth" Hispanic market, along with Raleigh, Atlanta and Denver, where Azteca America coverage is also present, because the growth of its Hispanic population is more than twice the national average. One in every three new residents in Portland is of Hispanic origin, according to U.S. Census data.
"We're thrilled to bring Portland's Hispanic community an additional news and entertainment option. Azteca America offers top live Mexican soccer matches, as well as the quality telenovelas and news and entertainment programming that have been missing until now," said Suzanne Arlie, President of Churchill Media.
KWVT Channel-52 has been serving Salem as a UHF television station for the past two years.
