New billboards advertising a Spanish-language newscast on KRCA-TV Channel 62 were intended as an attention-grabber for its core audience, but instead have struck a nerve with activists seeking to curb illegal immigration. The billboards show two cable newscasters sitting in front of the downtown skyline, with "Los Angeles, CA" printed above. The "CA" is crossed out, and "Mexico" is stamped alongside in bright red letters. Underneath are the Spanish words, "Tu ciudad. Tu equipo." -- Your city.

Fred Sands, the Santa Monica real estate broker who bought KBLA-AM last year and struggled to introduce an all-business news format, has thrown in the towel and signed a tentative agreement to lease the station to Korean-language programmers.
