History

WNJU-TV signed on the air on May 16, 1965 as the first commercial UHF station in the New York television market (WNYC-TV was the first UHF station to sign on the air in 1961, but it was operated as a non-commercial educational station for its first 35 years of existence despite having a commercial license). The station originally broadcast from the Mosque Theater (now Newark Symphony Hall), located at 1020 Broad Street in Newark, in the former studios of WATV (channel 13). The station was owned by Henry Becton (son of Maxwell Becton, co-founder of Becton Dickinson) and Fairleigh S. Dickinson Jr. (son of Fairleigh S. Dickinson Sr., founder of Fairleigh Dickinson University and also the co-founder of Becton Dickinson). The general manager during WNJU's early years was pioneering UHF broadcaster Edwin Cooperstein. The station's initial schedule featured a mix of English, Asian, Spanish and Italian shows. During the mid-1960s, the station broadcast a live and locally produced teenage dance show called Disc-O-Teen, hosted by John Zacherle; and a folk music program, Rainbow Quest, hosted by Pete Seeger. WNJU was involved in some controversy when it aired bullfights, which some critics believed were too violent. The station was not profitable due to the lack of awareness of UHF stations in the New York metropolitan area. The market had seven VHF stations, six of which were commercial, at a time when most cities had an average of three commercial stations. WNJU already had two strikes against it, and served minority audiences with mostly brokered programming.

WNJU-TV was sold in the fall of 1970 for $8 million (a fairly high price for a UHF station back in 1970) to Screen Gems Broadcasting, a subsidiary of Columbia Pictures. It was thought that WNJU would now become competitive because Screen Gems had deep pockets, but the brokered ethnic format would ultimately continue. It maintained an English-speaking audience a few hours a week during the 1970s when it was the only New York broadcast outlet for the World Wide Wrestling Federation. The station used a logo with WAPA-TV's "Open 4", as it was WAPA-TV's sister station at the time.

By the late 1970s, WNJU-TV had evolved into mostly Spanish programming, along with some ethnic brokered programs that aired on weekends. During the week, WNJU ran English-speaking religious programming until noon. From 12:00 p.m. onward, the station ran Spanish programming. On Sundays, the station also aired English-language religious programs in the morning. WNJU was sold in 1979 to a consortium led by Jerry Perenchio, Bud Yorkin and Norman Lear. By the early 1980s, much of the other brokered foreign language programming disappeared, with WNJU airing English language religious programming in the morning and Spanish programming the rest of the day. Some brokered programs, including Greek (and Italian in the early-mid 1970s), aired on Sunday afternoons into the early 1990s.

In 1984, WNJU-TV joined with two Spanish language television stations that were not affiliated with the Spanish International Network (now Univision) and formed NetSpan, the United States' second Spanish-language television network. NetSpan's original group of affiliates included WNJU-TV, KSTS in San Jose, California, and WBBS in Chicago (which aired its programming in the evenings and late nights only); the latter two stations were locally owned. In 1985, KVEA in Corona, California, WSCV in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (both of which were owned by Blair Broadcasting), and locally owned WCIU-TV in Chicago (which aired NetSpan programming after 5 p.m. only) joined NetSpan. The network acquired WNJU-TV and the other stations, except for WCIU, outright in 1986.

In 1987, NetSpan added more affiliates, and changed its name to Telemundo. In Chicago, WSNS-TV dropped its Univision affiliation and joined Telemundo, with WCIU carrying Univision programming after 5 p.m. In the early 1990s, WNJU dropped its English-language religious shows and became a full-time Telemundo station.

In 1989, the station moved its operations to 39 Industrial Avenue in Teterboro. In 2001, General Electric (then-owner of NBC) purchased Telemundo. WNJU witnessed major overhauls, adopting similar opening graphics to those used at New York City's WNBC, and adopting a tweaked version of its opening music sequence. In 2003, WNJU relocated to the Sixth Floor at 2200 Fletcher Avenue in Fort Lee, occupying the former studios and offices of the NBC-owned CNBC cable network, which around the same time moved to a state-of-the-art new studio complex at 900 Sylvan Avenue (Route 9W) in Englewood Cliffs.

In 2009, WNJU debuted the morning magazine program Las Comadres con Gloria B, which became the No. 1 program in the market in its timeslot, garnering 1.5 million viewers.[3]

On May 17, 2017, WNJU announced it would begin over-the-air nighttime transmission testing from One World Trade Center in the fourth week of May 2017, which they expected to commence seven to 10 days later, and by the end of the year, WNJU and four other NYC area TV stations began broadcasting from the new tower.[4][5]

Digital television

Digital channels

The station's digital signal is multiplexed:

Channel Video Aspect PSIP Short Name Programming[6]
47.1 1080i 16:9 WNJU-HD Main WNJU programming / Telemundo
47.2 480i 4:3 T-Xitos TeleXitos

On November 1, 2011, WNJU began broadcasting the soi network on digital subchannel 47.3. A month later, WNJU began broadcasting the Telemundo 2 Network on digital channel 47.2. WNJU also operates a Mobile DTV feed of subchannel 47.1, labelled "WNJU T47".

As of November 2014, WNJU has replaced EXITOS with TeleXitos on 47.2 and soi is no longer on 47.3.

Analog-to-digital conversion

WNJU discontinued regular programming on its analog signal, over UHF channel 47, on June 12, 2009, as part of the federally mandated transition from analog to digital television.[7] The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 36,[8] using PSIP to display WNJU's virtual channel as 47 on digital television receivers.

On April 13, 2017, it was revealed that the over-the-air spectrum of sister station WNBC had been sold in the FCC's spectrum reallocation auction, fetching $214 million. WNBC will remain in operation, sharing broadcast spectrum with WNJU.[9] The shared broadcast took effect April 2, 2018.[10]

News operation

WNJU presently broadcasts 17 hours of locally produced newscasts each week (with three hours each weekday and one hour each on Saturdays and Sundays); in addition, the station produces a newsmagazine program titled Acceso Total, which airs weekday mornings at 10 a.m. and the public affairs program Enfoque New York (a local version of the Telemundo discussion program Enfoque), which airs Sundays at 12 p.m.

WNJU launched its news operation in the late 1980s, with 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts anchored by Jorge L. Ramos In 1997, it launched a weekend edition of Noticiero 47, anchored by Ivan Taylor. In 2001, it launched a morning newscast called Noticiero 47 Primera Edicion, as well as a midday newscast, and the weekend newscast was taken over by Ramon Zayas. However, due to company-wide cutbacks, WNJU pulled the plug on its morning, midday, and weekend newscasts in 2009.

Three years later, in 2012, the weekend newscast was relaunched, and in November 2012, a new morning newscast was introduced, called Buenos días, Nueva York. Buenos Días expanded to 5 a.m., adding El Pacha from rival WXTV-DT, though it later reverted to its former title of Noticiero 47 Primera Edicion. Gloria Echeverry was also added to the weeknight newscasts as co-anchor, while Yaima Crespo joined the weekend newscasts in that same capacity. Entertainment reporter Odalys Molina was moved to the morning newscast. During that time, the station also received a new helicopter, HelicopteroT47, along with sister station WNBC and rival WXTV-DT. Morning weather anchor Audris Rijo and Rafael Bello now anchor Acceso Total.

On September 18, 2014, Telemundo announced a new 5:30 p.m./4:30 p.m. newscast for all 14 of its owned-and-operated stations, including WNJU. Additionally, a new daytime newscast debuted November 3, 2014.

Jorge L. Ramos

Jorge L. Ramos (born March 25, 1950) is a retired five-time Emmy Award winning senior anchor of the evening news on Telemundo's New York City affiliate, WNJU. A pioneer in the field of Spanish-language broadcasting, Ramos began his career in 1979 as the first reporter of the station's newly founded news division, which went on the air in 1980.

Ramos was born in Puerto Rico and graduated from the University of Puerto Rico with a degree in Humanities. In the early 70s he worked at radio stations WKVM and WQBS, both located in Santurce, Puerto Rico. Ramos moved to New York City in 1976.In his years at Telemundo, Ramos has covered numerous elections and inaugurations in the United States and Puerto Rico.

In November 2002, Ramos introduced the popular segment Crimenes sin Resolver (Unsolved Crimes). Since its inception, his reports have led to the capture and conviction of four dangerous fugitives. Raymond Kelly, Commissioner of the New York City Police Department awarded Ramos a special recognition for his work on the program.

During the tragedy of September 11, 2001, Ramos and the Noticiero 47 news team stayed Live on the air for six consecutive days with no commercial interruptions. The station was one of the few local New York stations that remained on air immediately following the attacks.

Ramos is married to Yolanda Ramos, a psychologist and host of a Christian radio morning show. They are parents of two grown children: Gabriel, a veteran of the United States Marine Corps , and Alejandra, a TODAY Show contributor. Ramos and his wife presently reside in northern New Jersey.

Metropolitan Television Alliance

The Metropolitan Television Alliance, LLC (MTVA) is a group organized in the wake of the loss of the transmission facilities atop the World Trade Center in 2001. Its mission is to identify, design and build a facility suitable for the long-term requirements of its member stations to meet their over-the-air digital broadcast requirements. This could include designing facilities for the Freedom Tower in Lower Manhattan, assessing alternative sites and technologies and dealing with local, state and federal authorities on relevant issues.The group, which includes stations WABC-TV 7, WCBS-TV 2, WFUT–TV 68, WNBC–TV 4, WNET–TV 13, WNJU–TV 47, WNYE-TV 25, WNYW–TV 5, WPIX–TV 11, WPXN-TV 31, WWOR-TV 9 and WXTV–TV 41, signed a memorandum of understanding in 2003 with the developer, Larry A. Silverstein, to install antennas atop the Freedom Tower. Broadcasters have used the Empire State Building (and, to a lesser degree, 4 Times Square) since the September 11 attacks. In 2006, control of the project was transferred to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, with which further discussions have been ongoing.

The group received a grant from the NTIA to study distributed transmission system (DTS) in New York City. Multiple tests were run from various sites in the New York and Newark region in 2006 and 2007 by MTVA and individual member stations, with the use of distributed transmission on a permanent, non-experimental basis ultimately approved for US stations by the Federal Communications Commission on November 7, 2008.

In 2008, Saul Shapiro was appointed President.

Nely Galán

Nely Galán (born 1963 in Santa Clara, Cuba) is an independent producer and a former President of Entertainment for Telemundo. She created and executively produced the FOX reality series The Swan.

Nely Galán was born Arnely Alvarez in Santa Clara, Cuba. Her parents moved to Teaneck, New Jersey in 1967 when she was five years old. During high school Galán submitted an article to Seventeen magazine which was so impressive she was asked to be a guest editor and led to a permanent position. At the age of 22, Galán embarked on her career in entertainment as the nation's youngest station manager for WNJU TV Channel 47 in New York. Owned by Jerry Perenchio and Norman Lear, the station became the launchpad for what is now the Telemundo Network.

Galán created and produced the Telemundo reality television program La Cenicienta (Cinderella). Hosted by Eva Tamargo, the program broke ground for Telemundo’s reality television programming. Different from Telemundo’s telenovelas, La Cenicienta is unscripted. Minerva Ruvalcaba is featured as La Cenicienta, a woman seeking Prince Charming from 20 bachelors.
