Canal 3 (Rosario)
It is one of the most popular channels in Rosario, the third largest city in Argentina (after Buenos Aires and Córdoba), although its signal reaches the south of Santa Fe province, the north of Buenos Aires province and part of Cordoba and Entre Ríos. Canal 3 mainly repeats Canal 13’s (Grupo Clarín) content. Only day, noon and evening news bulletins are produced by the channel with a local hint (although it broadcasts the recorded coverage of some national stories coming from Buenos Aires). On Canal 3, there are also some vernacular shows created by local production companies. However, the prime time is monopolized by content produced in Buenos Aires.
The channel’s most emblematic show, and the oldest in local TV, is De 12 a 14, a news bulletin broadcasted since 1966.
Josefina Daminato and Gustavo Scaglione, a prominent married couple of businesspeople who purchased Canal 3 in 2015, are its controlling shareholders.
