Almost 4 weeks after Telemundo cancelled “Cada Día,” the network announced it is launching a new morning show in August.
“Levántate” will be a 2-hour show produced live from Telemundo’s WKAQ studios in Puerto Rico. According to a Telemundo press release, the producers of the Billboard Latin Music Awards will be in charge of the show, under the direction of Tony Mojena.
Highly focused on entertainment, the new morning show will incorporate original stories from Mexico, Los Angeles, New York and Miami. Telemundo will announce the name of the hosts at a later date.
In a memo sent out on Tuesday, CEO Don Browne told employees: “We are currently in conversations and working on putting together a great ensemble in front of the camera.” Local and network news cut-ins will also be included.
