WUVC Univision 40 is launching a 30-minute Spanish-language newscast in the state that will air weekdays at 6 p.m.
The newscast, "Noticias 40," will begin airing Aug. 29.
The station said the newscast will attempt to tap into the growing Hispanic population in the Triangle and Fayetteville areas.
The newscast will be anchored by Jaime Zea and Edwin Pitti.
Univision is also expanding newscasts in Atlanta, Dallas and Houston.
“We are excited to bring to the area’s rapidly growing Hispanic population the first Spanish language daily newscast,” said Luis Fernandez-Rocha, a senior vice president with Univision Local Media, in a release.
“Our viewers and constituents rely on Univision 40 for news coverage that will inform and empower their families and communities on decisions that impact them.”
