Televisa Californias opens television studio in Seaport Village – The San Diego Union

The regional television station of Mexico’s largest television network, Televisa, opened a 700-square-foot studio in San Diego’s Seaport Village on Thursday.

The cross-border studio was possible through a partnership between Televisa Californias — which includes, XEWT-Channel 12 — and Seaport Village. It is located in a former art gallery and is equipped with interview, greenscreen and nautical-themed sets.

“Televisa has always understood the Tijuana-San Diego region as a community,” said Julian Ceñal, director of Televisa Californias, during last week’s opening.

“The Hispanic audience we served 30 years ago has changed, and today the community’s need in this area implies more proximity, different content, and the possibility of being closer to our studios,” he added.

A spokesperson with Seaport Village said the arrangement is “open-ended and could evolve into a lease.”

Spanish-speaking Televisa’s XEWT-Channel 12 has operated in the Cali-Baja region for more than 60 years from its Tijuana headquarters. This will be the network’s first studio to operate and broadcast from across the border in San Diego.

San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria said the collaboration illustrates the so-called mega-region, which he said “is more than two cities, it’s really one family, una familia.”
