WJAN-CD began broadcasting in the Spanish language in 1994. That same year it began broadcasting its first independently-produced entertainment series produced for the Hispanic market in the United States, A Oscuras Pero Encendidos. Hosted by producer and entertainer Paul Bouche, the show became a success and in 2000, owner Omar Romay started investing in locally produced entertainment programs. By 2009, the station had 7 hours of original programming per day and a share of over 10 percent of the Spanish-language television audience in Miami during prime time.
WJAN became an affiliate of MundoFox at the network's launch on August 13, 2012 and would use the on-air name "MundoFox 41.1 & 48.2 Miami" due to MundoFox also simulcasting of WFUN-LD 48.2 At that time, the station's intellectual operations known as América TeVé moved exclusively (except for the 5 and 10 p.m. newscasts which are simulcasted) to WFUN-LD 48.1 On December 28, 2012, MundoFox announced that it would move its Miami affiliation from WJAN to WGEN-TV, leaving WJAN and WFUN to return to independent status.
Due to the loss of the MundoFOX affiliation, on January 28, 2013, WJAN-CD and WFUN-LD launched a new station called Teveo. The channel is stylized as a 24-hour newschannel, shown weekdays from 5:00 p.m. – 12:00 a.m. It carries all of the station's live newscasts, plus repeats of its 6:00 and 11:00 p.m. newscasts and its public affairs programming which includes A Mano Limpia and Sevcec a Fondo. It also added live weekday hour-long 7:00 and 9:00 p.m. newscasts on that day, making it the only station in South Florida with news at the time. Paid programming is shown at other times of the day. The channel is shown on WJAN 41.1, Comcast Channel 82, Atlantic Broadband Channel 3 and AT&T U-Verse Channel 41.
The station transmitted analog on channel 41, and now on digital TV channels 41.2 and 48.1 as WJAN-CD and WFUN-LD (the latter station was previously separately-programmed). Channel 41 serves viewers in most of Miami-Dade County, while Channel 48 serves viewers in North Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.
