History

KWEX-TV channel 41 began as KCOR-TV in 1955, named after its radio sister station, which itself was named for Raoul CORtez, the owner and pioneer of the first full time Spanish language radio and television stations in the United States. KWEX-TV was also the first UHF channel in south Texas. In 1961, after years of losing money with KCOR-TV, Mr. Cortez sold the station to his son-in-law, Emilio Nicolas, Sr., Renold Anselmo, Emilio Azcarraga Vidaurreta, Julian Kaufman and Frank Fouce, Sr. Emilio Nicolas, Sr. worked side by side with Cortez since the stations inception, not only running the station, but producing many of its variety shows. Nicolas made the station a financial success and in 1962 Nicolas and his partners built their second station in Los Angeles, KMEX-TV channel 34. Thus the first Spanish language television network began to form.
