Montoya gone from Telemundo 51

Maria MontoyaWeekday news anchor María Montoya is no longer with Telemundo 51 in Miami. Details are scarce about her departure.  A company spokesperson would only say she “has decided to pursue other opportunities and we wish her the best.”

María had been 6 and 11 pm weekday anchor since 2003.  She had previously anchored WSCV-51’s morning show and before that, had spent time at Univision 23.  She began her U.S. carreer in the 80’s at Telemundo’s Miami station.

Telemundo says it will conduct a search for her replacement.

Speculation that her co-anchor, Ambrosio Hernández, also left the company was dismissed.  According to the spokesperson, he is on vacation this week.

    Veronica, I love your blog but want to make a suggestion to improving it. Some of your readers are not as aware of you of call signs or station monikers. How about adding the city and call sign to your write-ups. Instead of just saying Telemundo 51 you could add the call sign and city to make it more clear.

    Just a suggestion. Keep up the great work.
