TEGNA, the broadcast TV station owner whose holdings include FOX affiliate WTIC-61 in Hartford and WCCT-20, the CW Network affiliate, serving the state of Connecticut, is partnering with “CT en Vivo,” a Spanish-language news and media website, to produce 61 Segundos de Noticias (61 Second News).
Segments will run weekdays on the FOX61 Morning News and on both news organizations’ websites and social platforms.
The Spanish language updates will be produced by CT en Vivo, using selected content from FOX61 News and anchored by CT en Vivo news anchors Cathy Montano and Oscar Arango. FOX61 currently produces 61 Second News and 61 Second Weather segments in English several times a day on its Facebook, twitter and Instagram pages.
FOX61 has been providing selected news content for CT en Vivo’s live weekday newscasts on www.ctenvivo.com at 12:30pm since 2018.
“The addition of 61 Segundos de Noticias to our partnership with CT en Vivo will help both FOX61 News and CT en Vivo to provide more news and information to an important segment of our Connecticut audience,” said Jon Hitchcock, president and general manager of FOX61/CW20. “We look forward to continuing to build upon our relationship with CT en Vivo to help serve Connecticut’s Spanish language population.”
“We are thrilled to be extending our partnership with FOX61 News,” said Maria Lino, General Producer of CT en Vivo. “The Spanish-Speaking CT Community needs to be served with high quality news content and that’s something we, along with FOX61, have been committed to provide since the beginning of our work together.”
The 61 Segundos de Noticias updates will debut on June 7.
