    We all know broadcasters love politics.

    So it shouldn't be too surprising to learn that one of Sonora's biggest radio broadcasters could be the Morena candidate for municipal president of Cajeme (Ciudad Obregón).

    You might not know the name Luis Antonio Ramos Méndez, but you might recognize his nickname, Toño, or his initials in Grupo LARSA Comunicaciones. There are some worried that Morena party insiders and veterans —*at least as much as you can be a veteran in a four-year-old political party —*might chafe at not being nominated.

    The 2018 Annual Work Program is out from the IFT, and it includes a taste of what the agency will be doing in the upcoming year.

    In April, for instance, a new broadcast coverage viewing tool will come out, allowing us to view the coverage areas of radio and TV stations (and not through INE maps).

    Also in the second quarter will be due a study about the continuity of service on the AM band. With some new stations on air, and changes to other technical facilities, some of the 61 migrants that have had to continue running their AM facilities may be asked to shut them down.

    In the third quarter, a study will identify communities that have no broadcast services, with the goal of extending radio and TV to unserved populations.

    By the end of the year, we'll also have a list of the frequencies up for grabs in IFT-8, the second radio auction which will be bid out in 2019.

    It looks like Multimedios has won the race to be first to air out of IFT-6.

    They plan on beginning high-power broadcasts from their six new TV stations the same day of their channel change to 6, February 24. This will increase their audience coverage from 13 million to 46 million people.

    Multimedios will open Mexico City studios this year and begin producing local news in Mexico City as well.

    MM's programming director says that MM will continue its focus on live shows:

    "We don't make novelas, we don't broadcast soccer, we don't make dramas, we don't do series. What we do is live television, entertainment and news, and that will be what MM is about."

    Our fourth known A90 clear to make its move will do so on Monday. It's XHIR, one of two stations in Ciudad Valles clearing the reserved band: https://www.facebook.com/46443887360...9776609734770/

    The Universidad de Guadalajara says they'll be on the air in Puerto Vallarta at the end of the year, and apparently they must have gotten the concession.

    It must have gotten the concession this past week.

    The new U de G transmitter would be based at the Centro Universitario de la Costa (home of XHUGPV-FM), and the plan is to be on the air with programs from Guadalajara by year's end but to begin local program production and build a TV studio in Vallarta in 2019.
