KVDA Set To Roll Out New Weekend Newscasts
Telemundo-owned KVDA San Antonio, Texas (DMA 31), said today that it will launch four new half-hour weekend newscasts on Saturday, June 10.
KVDA’s weekend edition of Noticias 60 Telemundo will air on Saturday at 5 and 10 p.m. and on Sunday at 4:30 and 10 p.m. The new newscasts will feature weekend news anchor Jairo Lozano, weather anchor Jessica Montoya, sports anchor Alejandra Becerra and lead weekend reporter Genaro Tijerina.
“Our local news expansion is a testament to the commitment we have to our viewers to better inform them by delivering best-in-class journalism when they want it and across all platforms,” said José Suárez, KVDA president-GM. “Our local audiences will be able to stay even more connected to the communities we all call home.”
Lozano’s promotion to weekend news anchor comes two years after he joined KVDA in 2015 as a reporter. Before this, he worked as a video journalist for KTLM McAllen, Texas, and as a floor manager, publisher and digital platforms administrator for KXTX Dallas.
Montoya is part of Telemundo 60’s Su Canal del El Tiempo weather team and is certified as a “weather watcher” by the National Weather Service. She joined KVDA in 2014 after working for Entravision Communications for eight years.
Becerra will lead KVDA’s weekend sports coverage and joins the station after working for KWEX San Antonio as a sports anchor since 2014. She earned a bachelor’s degree in communications from University of Maryland University College.
Tijerina joins KVDA after working as a bilingual news reporter for KNVO and KFXV in McAllen, Texas, since 2016.
