LATV Networks, the hip multicast network for young Spanish speakers, acquired syndication/production company American Latino TV.
The multimillion-dollar deal represents LATV’s first acquisition and indicates its interest in the syndication market.
LATV’s shows, which include Mex 2 the Max and LATV en Concierto, are a mix of English- and Spanish-language, while American Latino’s are English. But LATV president and chief operating officer Howard Bolter said both aim for the same demographic.
