CNN's Spanish-language programming service, CNN Latino, has increased its reach. Television stations in New York, Phoenix, Orlando and Tampa have agreed to carry the eight-hour-a-day syndicated block.
CNN Latino launched in January on KBEH-DT Channel 63 in Los Angeles. Until now, its distribution had been limited to L.A., the nation's largest Latino market.
The service is a departure for CNN, pioneer of the cable news genre. Time Warner Inc.'s venture was designed to provide a range of programming -- not just news -- as a syndicated block that would run from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. a day, on broadcast stations rather than cable channels.
