Hispanic Broadcasting Corporation & Univision Communications, Inc.
Record Documents | Public Notice | Applications | Contacts

Hispanic Broadcasting Corporation (Hispanic Broadcasting) and Univision Communications, Inc. have filed applications pursuant to Section 310(d) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, seeking Commission approval to transfer control of licenses and authorizations currently controlled by subsidiaries of Hispanic Broadcasting. This transfer of control would take place as the result of a proposed merger between Univision and Hispanic Broadcasting, after which Hispanic Broadcasting would become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Univision.

Hispanic Broadcasting and its subsidiaries currently own 55 AM and FM Spanish-language broadcast radio stations, while Univision and its subsidiaries currently own 50 television stations, as well as the Spanish-language television broadcast network Univision Network, and the Spanish-language cable network Galavision.

These applications have been consolidated under MB Docket No. 02-235, and most of the record in the proceeding is accessible through the Electronic Comment Filing System. Hard copies of the documents in the record may be obtained for a fee from the FCC’s duplicating contractor Qualex International, or may be viewed and/or copied at the FCC Reference Center.

An electronic version of the application can be downloaded off the main CDBS Public Access Link contained in the Commission's website by searching under the lead call sign, KGBT.
