KNBC airs mun2 variety show ‘Viva’

April 11 rebroadcast first under new accord

Bilingual pay TV network mun2, a division of NBC U-owned Telemundo, will air a special edition of its flagship “Vivo” show April 11, the first to be rebroadcast on the NBC station in Los Angeles under a new accord.

The hourlong music variety show, which also features celebrity and entertainment trends and news, is taped in Los Angeles before a live studio audience. Show launched in February on mun2.

In-studio perfs and guest appearances on “Vivo” are aimed at Hispanics and a general audience. Show airs at 9 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays on the mun2, which reaches 10 million U.S. homes.

The April 11 show will showcase reggaeton group Calle 13 and musician, producer and composer Gustavo Santaolalla.

KNBC will air that spec at 2 a.m. April 16 and the series in that time going forward, extending the show’s reach, albeit in the wee hours, in the critical L.A. market with its concentration of young, bilingual Spanish speakers.
