KMEX traces its journey back to Sep 25, 1962 when it was first aired by Spanish International Network (later Univision in 1987). It would air basic English teaching program Escuela four days a week. A teacher at Los Angeles Unified School District ran the show and students mailed their assignments directly to Ginger. Cory was known as a friend and counselor to many in Southern California.
Univision signed a deal with Los Angeles Rams which would see the channel broadcasting their training sessions, pre-season games and pre-recorded studio shows. It was Univision’s first such venture with NFL. The sporting content would air on KMEX-DT and its siblings KBTF, KFTR and KABE.
