Univision news wins at 6

Spanish-lingo newscast lands on top

In the first achievement of its kind, the 6 p.m. newscast on Univision’s Spanish-language WXTV New York finished ahead of every other TV station in the time period Tuesday — including news on the O&Os of ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox — in adults 18-49 and 25-54.

Station officials chalked it up to the Hispanic community’s eagerness to find out about the consequences of the record-high temperature and humidity that acted on New York City residents like a blowtorch.

The Local People Meter overnights showed that 157,658 adults 18-49 tuned in to the half-hour “Noticias Univision 41” news at 6. The nearest competitor was WABC, which drew 138,705.

Among adults 25-54, WXTV’s newscast harvested 211,512, easily beating second-place WABC, which chalked up 176,260.
