Vegas Boulevard Mall to house TV station

Posted: Updated:

A Las Vegas shopping mall said Tuesday it will bring in a new and unusual tenant amongst its many retail and big box stores – a full-power television station.

Boulevard Mall, which is located on Maryland Parkway between Desert Inn Road and Twain Avenue, announced an agreement to designate more than 4,700 square feet of space for Las Vegas MundoFOX affiliate KMCC-TV.

In a statement released by Boulevard Mall, KMCC manager Patrice Donley said the space will include a control room and administrative offices, as well as big screen monitors that will show MundoFOX programming to shoppers.

The move is expected to be completed by August, Donley said.

Despite the unusual location of a shopping mall, Donley said the area was targeted to go hand-in-hand with the newly launched network's Spanish language programming.

"We felt that being in the mall would give us a competitive advantage other television stations just can't duplicate," Donley said. "It is as much a community center for the valley's Hispanic and Latino populations and those who live in the area's historic neighborhoods that surround it."

The station is expected to employ about 20 people at its new location.
