Don't think so. The companies have an established
working business relationship. Univision owns about 30% of Entravision.
Entravision has a 25 year affiliation agreement with Univsion.
Entravision's 18 stations in top markets are affiliated with Univision.
Entravision is locally oriented with all of its stations in major markets.
It has stated that Ch.27 will have a local Spanish-language
newscast, with anchors and reporters, plus weather and sports segments
sometime next year.
