Mexico has 872 separately licensed television stations authorized by the Federal Telecommunications Institute. Commercial stations are operated by Televisa, TV Azteca, Grupo Imagen, Grupo Multimedios and their affiliate partners. There are seven major national commercial channels, two of which are exclusively available over-the-air as subchannels: Azteca Uno Las Estrellas Imagen Televisión Canal 5 Azteca 7 ADN 40 a+There are local stations with independent programs and subchannels carrying Televisa's Nu9ve network which shares time with local programming, Televisa Regional stations, which incorporate programming from various Televisa networks alongside local news and magazine programs. Multimedios Televisión operates a regional network concentrated in northeastern Mexico, a handful of independent stations operate in regions along the border. Noncommercial stations are divided into social concessions. Public concessions are predominantly owned by federal and state governments and public institutions of higher education.
The two largest public networks are Canal Once, owned by the Instituto Politécnico Nacional, the multiplexed transmitter network of the Sistema Público de Radiodifusión del Estado Mexicano, which offers multiple public television services. 27 of the 32 states operate their own state networks, some of which have dozens of low-power transmitters. Social concessions are held by private universities, civil associations, some individuals. In addition, due to Mexico's rugged terrain, many stations operate low-powered co-channel translators to serve areas shielded by terrain, to improve signal reception in fringe areas, or to serve different television markets. Translators may be in different states from their parent stations; the list demonstrates the legacy of large television station concessions awarded in the 1980s and early 1990s. The two most notable of these were awarded to Televisa. Since the conversion to digital and Azteca have multiplexed transmitters in rural areas, bringing full national network service to smaller communities for the first time.
In March 2015, Grupo Imagen and Grupo Radio Centro won concessions for 123 new television stations each, forming two new national television networks. The new networks must meet a minimum coverage standard set by the IFT for 2018 and reach full national coverage by 2020. However, Grupo Radio Centro refused to pay its winning bid of 3.058 billion pesos and thus had its concession revoked. Imagen's network, Imagen Televisión, launched on October 17, 2016 with a presence in nearly every state. Analog stations were shut off beginning on July 2013, with a pilot transition in Tijuana. In 2015, stations went digital-only throughout the country on 10 dates; some 129 analog television stations owned by noncommercial entities, such as state governments, another 368 repeaters of Televisa stations, received exemptions to delay their transition until December 31, 2016. Virtual channels were assigned by the IFT in 2016, unifying most transmitters of national networks under one number and ending decades of old analog channel numbers.
Bob "Wojo" Wojnowski is an American reporter and columnist for The Detroit News and host of a radio show on WXYT-FM in Detroit, Michigan. Wojnowski appears on Fox 2 WJBK's Sunday Night Sports Works roundtable. Wojnowski co-hosted the Stoney and Wojo radio show on WDFN. Along with co-host Mike Stone, the Stoney and Wojo show had been a consistent ratings leader for years in the Detroit afternoon drive time slot until it was canceled on January 20, 2009; the Stoney and Wojo show was a three-hour radio broadcast that included listener call-in segments, regular guests, current affairs talk slanted towards the Detroit and Michigan sports fan. With Mike Stone and Wojnowski's playful repartee, the show had developed a definite comedic quality with Stone playing straight man to Wojo's more clownish comments; the heart of the show was sports and the breaking news of the Detroit sports market was paramount. Included were interviews, where the professional journalism strengths of both Stone and Wojnowski come to the fore.
Political news was featured, Governor Jennifer Granholm has appeared several times, for example. Stoney and Wojo conducted an annual 28-hour radiothon in support of research for a cure of leukemia and lymphoma; the event was started when Sabrina Black, WDFN update reporter, was diagnosed with lymphoma, continued after her long battle with the disease lead to her death in 2006. It was held in a Metro Detroit restaurant and includes many regular guest appearances including Tony Dungy and Joe Dumars, among many others. Stoney and Wojo filled in for Jim Rome on the North American syndicated The Jim Rome Show on July 13, 2007. On January 20, 2009, due to cutbacks at Clear Channel, the Stoney and Wojo Show was discontinued on WDFN "The Fan" in Detroit. After making appearances on the Drew and Mike Show on WRIF, Wojo joined the evening drive-time show on WXYT-FM on January 23, 2012, accompanied by fellow WDFN alumnus and Fox 2 roundtable partner Jamie Samuelsen for "The Jamie and Wojo Show". On September 6, 2016, Samuelsen moved to mornings, joining Wojo's former co-host Stoney, leaving Wojo to run the evening show solo.
On June 8, 2017, Kyle "Bogey" Bogenschutz joined Wojo's show. In addition to his own show, Wojo has a weekly segment on Jamie and Stoney called "Wednesdays with Wojo", the title of which parodies the name of fellow Detroit sports columnist and radio personality Mitch Albom's book Tuesdays with Morrie. Wojo has a running rivalry with fellow Ticket host Mike Valenti; as Valenti is a graduate of Michigan State University, the two play up the intrastate rivalry between MSU and Wojo's alma mater Michigan. Wojo is a longtime active member of the Detroit Sports Broadcasters Association. Wojnowski predicts final scores of big Detroit sporting events under the name "Wojodamus". One of Wojodamus' first predictions was Arizona State's upset of the top ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers during the 1996 college football season; the loss ended Nebraska's 26 game winning streak. Wojodamus predicted the Detroit Pistons' selection of Tayshaun Prince in the 2002 NBA Draft and the Detroit Lions' selection of Mike Williams in the 2005 NFL Draft.
The Wojodamus legend grew as early as 1999 when he went into an on-air trance and predicted the No. 9 nationally ranked Wisconsin Badgers football team would lose to the unranked Cincinnati Bearcats. On April 9, 2008, Wojodamus predicted the 0–7 Detroit Tigers would win their first game of the 2008 Major League Baseball season against the Boston Red Sox; the Tigers won the game 7–2. On November 17, 2012 – before the matchups were announced – Wojodamus predicted Alabama would beat Notre Dame 42–14 in the 2013 BCS National Championship Game. Bob Wojnowski's.

Like all Asian Games boxing events, the competition was a straight single-elimination tournament; this event consisted of 17 boxers. The competition began with a single bout in the round 32 on 7 December, where the number of competitors was reduced to 16, concluded with the final on 18 December; as there were fewer than 32 boxers in the competition, a number of boxers received a bye through the preliminary round. Both semi-final losers were awarded bronze medals. All bouts consisted of five three-minute rounds; the boxers receive points for every successful punch they land on their opponent's head or upper body. The boxer with the most points at the end of the bouts wins. If a boxer is knocked to the ground and cannot get up before the referee counts to 10 the bout is over and the opponent wins.
