MIAMI – Mexican TV personality Ana Maria Canseco is returning to U.S. Spanish-language television to host “Un nuevo dia,” Telemundo’s morning show, the network announced Tuesday.
Canseco’s participation in the program, which will air on Sept. 9, is a return to TV after working for years hosting the Univision morning show “Despierta America.”
Canseco hosted the Univision program with Fernando Arau and Neida Sandoval, and all of them were affected by the payroll cuts recently carried out by that network.
“I am so happy to be back on television in my new home, Telemundo, and to be part of the mornings of our audience that has followed me for so long and has shown me lots of love,” Canseco said in a press release.
“I love to be part of this great team and share the screen with my new colleagues ... (and providing) Latinos (with) happiness, good entertainment and fun,” she said.
“Un Nuevo Dia” fills a three-hour slot from Monday through Friday providing general news, as well as news about entertainment, health, fashion and beauty, along with a good dose of humor.
Canseco joins the current team of presenters made up of Adamari Lopez, Rashel Diaz, Omar Germenos, Daniel Sarcos, Azucena Cierco, Alessandra Villegas, Chef James and Ramon Zayas. EFE
