The music so far is predominantly English with a few Spanish songs mixed in. The station is branding itself with H20 standing for “Hispanic 2.0″. Univision recently ran an “H20 Music Festival” in Dallas featuring a mix of English and Spanish artists including Juanes, Snoop Dogg, Gym Class Heroes, Weezer, Paulina Rubio, Tiesto and Damian Marley. A similar festival will be held in Los Angeles in August.
Two other Univison Dallas stations debut new formats as well. Regional Mexican “La Jefa” moves from 99.1 KFZO Denton to 107.1 KDXX Benbrook. 107.1 had been simulcasting “Recuerdo” with 107.9. 99.1 debuts as Spanish AC “Maxima 99.1“.
