McHenry T. Tichenor Jr. will resign as president of Univision Radio at the end of the month, Univision Communications Inc. said. The Century City-based media company said Tichenor was leaving to pursue other interests.
Tichenor had been the chief operating officer of Hispanic Broadcasting Corp., a family-owned business, and its predecessors for more than 23 years. Univision last year acquired Hispanic Broadcasting and renamed it Univision Radio. The division owns and operates 68 radio stations in the United States, including four in Puerto Rico.
Tichenor will continue to serve as a consultant to the company and as a director, Univision said. A successor has not been named.
