Gotham’s Univision O&O ups newscasts

Ratings boost spurs revamp

Univision’s Gotham O&O WXTV will add a 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscast to its weekend sked starting Aug. 8.

The expansion comes on the heels of notable ratings gains for WXTV’s weekday newscasts in the past May sweep. Gotham’s dominant Spanish-lingo station marks its 30th anniversary on the air this month.

“Spanish-speaking viewers want more local TV news in Spanish,” said WXTV general manager Cris-tina Schwarz. “Our reply is, ‘You asked for it and we’re giving it to you.’ ”
