    Poor Azalea Iñiguez can’t catch a break. That poor woman has held every anchor spot at the station and she just doesn’t stick. Me thinks management doesn’t like her. She’s a great reporter but she’s been there so long she deserves a permanent anchor spot. There’s just no respect or appreciation for loyalty.

    Que lastima que se va Azucena, sin ninguna duda, con ella era el mejor equipo de noticias de Los Angeles.
    Pocas personas tienen el carisma y la frescura que ofrece Azucana, la gracia y la chispa de Saul y la belleza de la niña del clima
    Ojala que quien llega llene esos zapatos.

    Seguimos contratando modelos, No periodistas, y así nos seguirá yendo – no veo a los canales americanos buscando modelitos – será que sabemos más que ellos de periodismo
