Univision Names New Prez Of Radio Division

NEW YORK  – Univision Communications Inc. has named veteran broadcast executive Jose Valle to the position of president of Univision Radio, the leading Spanish-language radio broadcaster in the U.S.  The appointment is effective immediately and was announced by Peter Walker, president of Univision Local Media.

 

Most recently Valle had served as vice president and general manager of Univision Radio Los Angeles.  In that role he oversaw the Company’s radio station cluster in the market – KLVE-FM, KSCA-FM, KTNQ-AM, KRCD/KRCV-FM.  This marked a professional home-coming for Valle who began his broadcast career at KTNQ and KLVE.

 

“Jose is one of the most accomplished and experienced broadcast executives that I have had the pleasure to work with in this industry who has a passion for Hispanic media.  We were most pleased to have him join Univision last year and are excited to have him oversee the operations of our entire radio division,” said Walker. “The reach, influence and impact of our radio platforms across the country further positions Univision’s unparalleled leadership in reaching Hispanic America.”

 

Valle has an extensive background in both television and radio. He previously served as president and general manager of Telemundo’s flagship station KVEA as well as overseeing operations for Spanish-language independent KWHY station in Los Angeles (2008-2010).  Before that position, Valle was VP-GM of KXTX / Dallas (2002-2008) where he played a key role in the consolidation and integration of operations with the NBC owned and operated station, KXAS. Earlier in his career, Valle served as vice president and general manager of various radio stations, including Hispanic Broadcasting Corporation’s (HBC) Las Vegas three-station cluster; Dallas-Fort Worth’s seven-station, four-format cluster; and was involved with the acquisition and flip of KLNO, which was the winner of the Marconi Award for Station of the Year and HBC Station of the Year, both in 2001.
