Two months after joining Telemundo as its new EPV of Network News, Luis Fernández today announced a series of changes as part of a reorganization to make the the department more “competitive.”

In an email sent in Spanish to staff, Fernández announced the departures of Sylvia Rosabal, SVP, Network News and Yolanda Zugasti, EP of “Enfoque.”

Rosabal joined Telemundo in 2012 a year after her ouster from Univision, where she had worked for 26 years. Zugasti, who also lost her job during Univision’s management changes in 2011, started at Telemundo in 2013.

Eduardo Suñol

Eduardo Suñol is promoted to VP, Telemundo News Digital.

Fernández’s email also announced several promotions:

* Eduardo Suñol has been upped from Senior Executive Producer to VP, Telemundo News Digital, in an effort to strengthen its digital news operations.
* Karen Carranza moves up from L.A. Bureau Chief to Director, Western Region, in charge of the L.A., Texas and San Jose bureaus.
* Leonor Ayala becomes Director, North Eastern Region, in charge of New York and Chicago bureaus.

Victoria Rivas-Vázquez remains in her role Noticias Telemundo Bureau Chief in Washington D.C.  Fernández emphasized the importance of giving bureaus autonomy while improving coordination with the network’s Miami headquarters.

Humberto Durán, on board since November of 2015, stays in his role as VP of News Operations and Production Management, adding Special Projects to his duties.

Fernández also announced that Edgardo del Villar officially becomes news anchor of morning show “Un Nuevo Día,” replacing Neida Sandoval, whose contract was not renewed.

Just as Media Moves reported last week, he confirmed the appointments of correspondents Edgar Muñoz in L.A. and Rubén Pereida in Chicago.

In closing, Fernández acknowledged “all changes generate concern and nervousness” and that he would hold a newsroom Town Hall tomorrow morning to answer questions and concerns.

Taylor starts at Univision Miami

Taylor starts at Univision Miami

Ivan TaylorIván Taylor, who resigned as Telemundo network’s Houston-based correspondent earlier this year, today started working at Univision’s WLTV 23 in Miami.

He joins Univision Local Media Miami as a special projects producer. A non-compete clause in his contract requires him to be off the air from any competitor, but when that restriction is lifted later in the year, his role is likely to change.

Univision 23’s VP of News, Roberto Vizcón, today sent staffers an internal memo welcoming Iván to the local news team.

Iván told Media Moves in March he “resigned because of a family illness to be close to my loved ones” and denied he had a job lined up.

The hire marks Ivan’s return to Miami’s local media market. He spent 12 years as an anchor/reporter at WSCV Telemundo 51, before moving to New York’s WNJU 47 and later, to Houston as a network correspondent.

EdgarMunoz-RebekaDiaz-RubenPereida

Edgar Muñoz, Rebeka Diaz and Rubén Pereida will become Telemundo network correspondents in L.A., NY and Chicago.

Rubén moves to Chicago to fill the void left by Janet Rodriguez’s departure to Univision network. Rubén started at Telemundo Phoenix in January of 2013, after spending 8 years as an anchor/video journalist at KTVW Univision 33 in Phoenix.

Edgar will be the Los Angeles-based correspondent, returning to Telemundo 7 months after KVEA-52 did not renew his contract as 6 and 11 pm anchor, prompting his exit from the local station. Edgar was previously a Univision network correspondent for Univision in Mexico City.

Edgar is set to start his new role later this month. Rebeka and Rubén will finish sweeps in Phoenix, before moving to their new roles. A source says their last day at KTAZ is scheduled for May 26.
