Broadcasters Mourn Loss of Becky Muñoz-Diaz

Pioneer Texas Broadcaster Becky Muñoz-Diaz passed away on December 26. She was 65.

In her more than 30 years of building English and Spanish language stations and serving two of the nation’s largest media markets, she was known and respected by her colleagues and competitors for growing ratings and revenues with an eye on the future for TV and Radio alike.

A native Texan, Muñoz-Diaz began her broadcast career in college at the University of Houston’s campus radio station. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Radio and Television Communications from UH in 1981 and went straight to work in sales at KCOH-AM and traffic at KIKK-AM-FM, all in Houston.

From 1995 to 2014, she served as General Manager and Vice President for Univision’s KUVN 23 and UniMas KSTR 49 – the number one and number two top-rated Spanish language stations in Dallas-Fort Worth, the fifth largest TV market in the country.

She served several terms on the TAB Board of Directors and her fellow broadcasters named her Pioneer Broadcaster of the Year in 2015.

Her memory will be lovingly cherished in the hearts of her husband, Oscar (Tony); daughter Kristin and step-children, Jacque, Jamie, and Adam; four grandchildren, Dixie, Rosalie, Kasen and Kylie; and siblings, Barbara, Rita, Robert, Cindy, Ruben, Chris, and George; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, dear friends and community members whom she loved wholeheartedly.      

The family invites everyone to the visitation on Saturday, January 7 beginning at 2 PM with Liturgy of the Word at 3 PM, at Sparkman/Hillcrest Funeral Home, 7405 W. Northwest Highway, Dallas, TX 75225. There will be a reception to follow.

The family has requested that flower deliveries be held until the Celebration of Life service on January 7 in Dallas. However, in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a charity of one’s choice, in honor of Becky Muñoz-Diaz.
