Austin UniMás station KFTO Channel 31 is now carrying a simulcast of a popular Spanish-language radio show.

“El Show de Raul Brindis” (“The Raul Brindis Show”) can be seen weekdays from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. on KFTO, as well as three other UniMás stations in Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio.

The simulcast started today, the same day four stations affiliated with sister network Univision, including Austin’s KAKW Channel 62, began airing a statewide morning newscast from 4 a.m. to 6 a.m.

Brindis’ radio show does well in the ratings across much of the state, according to UniMás executives. In Houston and the Rio Grande Valley, for instance, it ranks No. 1, regardless of language.

“Raul Brindis is a household name within the Hispanic community in Texas, and we are pleased to expand the show’s reach to give UniMás viewers the chance to experience one of their favorite radio personalities right on their TV screens,” said Univision Local Media president Kevin Cuddihy. “This is part of our commitment to offer the best content from across our platforms that we know is culturally relevant and will resonate with our audiences.”
