Tichenor To Exit As Univision Radio Prez

Latin company seeking replacement.

McHenry Tichenor has resigned as president of Univision Radio, effective Dec. 31. The company says Tichenor will "pursue other interests outside of the Spanish-language broadcast business."

Tichenor will remain on Univision Communications' board of directors and will act as a consultant for the company. Univision Radio COO Gary Stone will oversee day-to-day operations until a
successor for Tichenor is found.

Tichenor was the longtime president/CEO of Hispanic Broadcasting Corp. before that company
merged with Univision earlier this year.

Univision Radio, the largest U.S. Spanish-language radio network, owns and operates 72 stations in 17 of the top 25 markets, including Puerto Rico.

Tichenor's resignation follows another high-profile Latin radio departure last month: Haz Montana exited as VP of programming for Entravision Communications, whose holdings include the youth-driven Super Estrella format. No replacement has been announced for Montana.
