Out with the old, in with Young Street

Belo8 quietly has folded La Vida, aimed at Hispanic viewers, and Metro, which targeted a black audience.
Its respective anchors, Henry Guerrero and Angelique Tege, now are co-anchoring the new Young Street, which premiered on Jan. 6th. The station describes it as "a look at the lifestyles of young adults in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, including music, nightlife, food and fashion." Young Street also is the address of Belo8's downtown Dallas offices.
The new program airs at 5 p.m. Sundays, where it now no longer will have to compete against Dallas Cowboys games. Last Sunday's well-kept secret drew just 9,742 D-FW homes opposite the season-ending Cowboys-Giants playoff game.
