Ubaldo Martinez promoted to Telemundo Houston main sports anchor

Ubaldo Martinez has been promoted to lead sports anchor at Telemundo Houston KTMD.

In his new role, Martinez will be responsible for the daily supervision of the sports department needs and direction.

"He knows and understands our station vision very well and has done a great job in the last couple of years of helping our sports brand grow in the market," said Telemundo Houston Vice President of News Jerry Vazquez in an email to his staff.

I'm told Telemundo Houston is the only local Spanish-language TV station with sports seven days a week and two fill-time sports anchors.

The station is gearing up to send Martinez to cover the World Cup in Russia next summer.

Martinez joined Telemundo Houston in September 2013.

Before Houston, he worked for Telemundo 30 KTUZ in Oklahoma City as a sports and news anchor.

Martinez earned his undergraduate degree in communications from the University of Oklahoma.
