SALT LAKE CITY -- CNN Latino announced it is expanding its Spanish-language programming to the Salt Lake City market. With the addition of the Utah market to its existing presence in Los Angeles, New York, and other major metropolitan areas, CNN Latino programming will now be available in markets that represent about 30 percent of U.S. Hispanic households, according to a CNN Latino press release.

 CNN Latino's spectrum of programming covering news, lifestyle, documentary, talk and debate represents an alternative to traditional Hispanic networks, and it will now be available on KPDR-LD Channel 19 in Salt Lake City. Channel 19, is a low-power television station in the Salt Lake City market. 

"KPDR, Channel 19, is excited about our new CNNL programming lineup," said station owner Craig Caples in the press release. "With the growing Hispanic population in the Salt Lake valley, and the lifestyle and entertainment programming CNNL provides, we feel this is a great fit for the Salt Lake Hispanic community."
