TuVisión was an American Spanish-language broadcasting network, which is owned by Pappas Telecasting. TuVisión is a portmanteau of tu (your) and televisión. During the latter part of 2007, Pappas hired Moelis & Company to develop long-term objectives to identify which television assets it should retain.[1] In 2008, several affiliates filed for Chapter 11 protection.[2] and TuVisión ceased broadcasting in 2009.

History[edit]

TuVisión began operations on July 1, 2007,[3] after Pappas dropped the Azteca America network from the Spanish-language stations that Pappas owned. The only exception was Los Angeles' KAZA-TV, which retained the network until its 2018 sale to Weigel Broadcasting; Pappas was under contract to carry Azteca América through December 2012 and its later bankruptcy effectively kept the affiliation after 2012 on creditor's orders.[4][5]

Programs[edit]

The main programs of TuVisión were Dueña y Señora (Puerto Rican telenovela), Alma Gemela (Brazilian telenovela), The Johnny Canales Show (music), Marta Susana (Guatemalan show) and Paparazzi TV.
