Spanish-language programming, which once came mainly from south of the border, more and more is wearing a new label: Made in the U.S.A. Three examples of domestically produced Spanish-language programs are shown on the cover.
Teresa Rodriguez (top photo) hosts "Portada," a weekly news magazine produced expressly for Latinos and billed as a cross between "West 57th" and "20/20." (Airs Monday at 11 p.m. on KMEX Channel 34.)
Lucy Pereda and Gabriel Traversari (center photo) co-host "TV Mujer," a daily hourlong magazine show produced for and by U.S. Latino women (Monday-Friday at 3 p.m. on Channel 34).
Eduardo Quezada and Cristina Gonzalez (lower photo) anchor half-hour newscasts at 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. daily on Channel 34.
Univision and Telemundo are the two major Spanish networks. Spanish programming airs locally both on Channel 34 and KVEA Channel 52.
