LA18 KSCI-TV has been broadcasting for over 35 years and serves Los Angeles's culturally diverse, multilingual communities. As the immigrant population grows in this region, so grows the demand for language-specific programming to provide news and entertainment.
Broadcasting on channel 18, LA18 serves the nation's second largest TV market and the largest Asian American market -- the Los Angeles DMA. LA18 provides a unique variety of news, sports, drama and entertainment programs, airing in multiple, primarily Asian, languages. On air since 1977, LA18 was the first multi-language station in Los Angeles.
In recognition of the valuable service this unique and important format provides, LA18 has received numerous awards including the prestigious Emmy, Hope Award from the City of Los Angeles as well as commendations by several municipalities and non-profit agencies that serve the ethnic communities in Los Angeles.
