Univision Communications, Inc. is the leading Spanish language media company in the United States.

History

Univision Communications, Inc. was founded in 1992 by businessman A. Jerrold Perenchio, Televisa and Venevision when the Univision Network was acquired from Hallmark Cards.

From September 1996 to April 2007, Univision Communications, Inc. traded in the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol UVN.

In 2001, Univision acquired USA Broadcasting, the station group of USA Networks, which included 13 full-power television stations which are listed below. Most of these stations became part of a new network called TeleFutura. Others joined Univision.

In March 2007, Univision Communications, Inc. was sold to Broadcasting Media Partners, Inc. which includes Madison Dearborn Partners, LLC, Providence Equity Partners Inc. , TPG Capital, L.P., Thomas H. Lee Partners, L.P., and Saban Capital Group.

Former USA Stations

These were the stations Univision picked up through the acquisition of USA Broadcasting.

* 1These stations are owned by Univision, however they are operated by Entravision under Local Marketing Agreements.
* 2WUVG also carries TeleFutura on a digital subchannel (WUVG-DT 48.2).
* 3WQHS is the only network-owned station bordering Canada. It is also one of only three stations near the Canadian border. The other two stations -- which are third-party owned, are WUDT-CA in Detroit, Michigan and KUNS-TV in Seattle, Washington. However, neither the network nor any of the three stations are available on cable or satellite in Canada due to foreign broadcast restrictions established by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).
