From David Del Valle in Madrid
On the heels of La Séptima announcing its launch by year end, another TV news channel – 7NN – is set to go live on air in Spain coinciding with Hispanic Day – October 12th.
The DTT channel, led by Marcial Cuquerella, former director of Intereconomía, will air 24/7 news programming claiming to be the alternative (‘La Alternativa’) to existing TV channels. Javier Villamor, a journalist linked to the right extreme party Vox, will have a presenting role on the channel.
7NN will compete against La Séptima and existing nationwide TV channels.
