Mac Tichenor Leaves Univision - and, Apparently, Spanish Radio
Publish date:

Mac Tichenor is stepping down, reportedly leaving the Spanish-language broadcast business after a quarter of a century; the company is launching a search for a successor.
The president of Univision Radio leaves Dec. 31 "to pursue other interests outside of the Spanish-language broadcast business." He will continue as a member of the parent company's board. COO Gary Stone will continue running radio operations.
Tichenor had been CEO of Hispanic Broadcasting Corp. prior to its merger with Univision. HBC became Univision Radio in September 2003.
In a statement, he said, "My 25-year career in broadcasting has proved very gratifying, starting with my father and grandfather in a family business, through our decision to specialize in Spanish radio, the merger of Tichenor Media System and Heftel Broadcasting, and, most recently, the acquisition of HBC by Univision."
Univision Radio has 72 radio stations including four in Puerto Rico.
