Telemundo was founded in the year 1984. The company has been active for almost 35 years now. In the year 1984, the owners of WNJU in Linden, New Jersey, USA and also KSTS in San Jose, California, USA, had formed NetSpan - which was the second Spanish-language television network in the continental USA. These stations had joined KVEA in Los Angeles, USA and run by its general manager and part-owner Joe Wallach, in the year 1985. The next year, KVEA's part-owner, Reliance Group Holdings, had acquired the Telemundo brand when it had purchased John Blair & Company, which also owned WSCV in Fort Lauderdale, Miami, West Palm Beach, in addition to WKAQ-TV as well. In the year 1986, Reliance had also purchased WNJU too.
In the year 1987, Reliance Capital Group executives named Saul Steinberg and Henry Silverman had merged all these stations into the Telemundo Group. The new corporation quickly went public as well, and in the year 1987, Reliance had decided to rebrand NetSpan as Telemundo as well. Later in the year, the company had purchased additional stations in San Francisco, Houston and also San Antonio too. Between the year 1988 and 1993, Telemundo had acquired or had been affiliated with television stations in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and also Washington DC too. Then in the year 1992, Telemundo had also underwent another management change, appointing former Univision president Joaquin Blaya as well – who had resigned from that network after discovering in an FCC filing for A Jerrold Perenchio's purchase of the system from Hallmark Cards as well, that Univision would increase its Reliance on programming from companies such as Televisa and also Venevision to levels that resulted in him concluding that there would be fewer opportunities for the addition of local programs as well on Univision's stations and was therefore subsequently joined by four other Univision executives too, in order to head the network as well. The first wave of all types of significant changes to Telemundo came in the year 1997 when the system had revamped its prime time schedule by cutting off almost an hour of its prime time telenovela lineup. Therefore, concurrently, local newscasts on the network's owned-and-operated and affiliate stations were moved an hour earlier, placing them directly against late-evening newscasts on channels such as Fox, WB, UPN and independent stations in many markets. This was followed by a late-evening national newscast produced by a cable news channel on CBS Telenoticias. Movies were also added during the to the channel as well. During the years from 1997 to the year 2001, companies such as Sony Pictures and Liberty Media had joined the company as well. Then in the year 2001, the company was sold off to NBC. As of the present date, the company is part of Comcast. The headquarters of the company is based in 2340 W 8th Avenue. The name of the place is Hialeah, while the name of the state is Florida, USA. The pin code of the area is 33010.
