Congratulations to our Denver Entravision station! Recently, KCEC-TV was awarded six Emmy Awards for its Noticias Colorado programming from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences at the 2016 Heartland Chapter Emmy Awards. KCEC-TV was the only Spanish-language station to win an Emmy for the chapter this year.


Additionally, KCEC-TV was the number one Spanish-language newscast and the newcast number two, regardless of language, in Denver, Colorado, among Adults 18-49. It garnered a 0.6 rating during the 5:00pm early news program, and a 0.7 rating for its 10:00pm newscast. KCEC-TV was also the number one Spanish-language newscast, and tied with KUSA-NBC for the number one newscast, regardless of language among Denver Millennials (Adults 18-34), during the 10:00pm late news program.


“Our success at the Heartland Emmys and during July sweeps is a testament to Entravision and station’s high-quality programming that reaches the U.S. Latino community across acculturation levels within the Denver region,” said Sheryl Personett, Senior Vice President of Integrated Marketing Solutions, Denver. “KCEC strives to provide our audiences with the most comprehensive and up-to-date news coverage, and that is why Entravision has such a strong presence within this market.”
