Telemundo Sneaks Up On Univision In Denver

As the booming U.S. Latino market reshapes everything from branding to prime time TV, the battle to capture Spanish-speakers’ attention is heating up in Denver. For this market’s 790,000 Hispanics, there has historically been one go-to TV source. KCEC, Entravision’s Univision affiliate, was by far the dominant Spanish-language station. Telemundo-owned KDEN trailed from a distance. Lately however, the challenger is on a roll.

TV And Radio Are Booming In Denver

MARKET PROFILE

Denver: TV And Radio Softer Than Last Year

TV and radio in Denver are healthy, but demand is down compared to last year, when the Olympics and elections fueled spending. “I think the outlook is that it will be a softer year,” says Jennifer Long, broadcast supervisor at Haworth Marketing + Media. “This market seems to be healthy, though, so I think it will still be strong for most stations.” Inventory remains tight in a few high-demand dayparts, but pricing is down mid-single digits in most dayparts, and the market is generally easy for advertisers to get into. Strong categories include auto, retail and fast food.

Denver: Strong Start To 2013 On TV

The market’s media economy had a strong 2012, boosted by a busy end of year following the November elections, and that momentum has continued into 2013. Pricing on TV is flat to last year, outside of highly rated sports and primetime programming. To start the year there has been high demand from a number of traditionally strong ad categories. Despite the fact that there are no Olympics or big elections, buyers expect a very good year.

Stations, Officials Clash Over Fire Coverage

Denver TV stations delivered extended coverage of the ongoing, fast-moving High Park Fire through the weekend as flames raged over nearly 37,000 acres and damaged or destroyed an estimated 100 structures. Reports of evacuations and the weather dominated the coverage. At times the journalistic imperative to deliver news clashed with authorities’ efforts to control the flow of information.
