WRMD Telemundo Tampa Leads Spanish-Language Television in Early Fringe   

The station also captured key primetime wins



Tampa, FL - WRMD Telemundo is Tampa's #1 Spanish-language television station in early fringe (3-6pm), commanding more than half of the audience across key demographics including adults 25-54, according to the July Nielsen survey. The station more than doubled its audience during that time period from last month among adults 18-49 and also delivered a 67% month-to-month increase among adults 25-54.  Long-running court series Caso Cerrado led Spanish television at 3pm and 4pm, while Al Rojo Vivo Con María Celeste commanded almost two-thirds of the adult 25-54 audience at 5pm.


WRMD also continues to show impressive growth in primetime with strong performances in key time periods. The overwhelming primetime hit Caso Cerrado Edición Estelar was #1 at 7pm among adults 25-54 and with women 18-49 and 25-54.  The popular 10pm novela, El Señor de los Cielos, concluded its run at the top with a 62% Spanish share of the female 25-54 audience.


Additionally, WRMD led daytime (10am-3pm) with almost half of the audience among adults 18-49 and 25-54, increasing its share of the audience by more than +75% from just last month.  


"WRMD has become a major force among Spanish-language television stations in the market with its July audience results.  Telemundo's connection with the Tampa Bay audience continues to strengthen, making our station a must buy for all advertisers," said Jayme Ribeiro Neto, General Manager of WRMD Tampa.
