Here’s a portion of the email Joanna sent to Noticiero Telemundo and Al Rojo Vivo staff announcing her resignation, shortly after 7 pm yesterday:
“Standing before you today to tell you of my decision to leave the company was not an easy one. But I have been comforted by your kind words and gestures. I want to reassure you that I came to this decision after weighing my career and family considerations. And I am excited about what the future holds for me in that aspect.
I want to thank you all, once again, for the many years of growth that you have been part of. As I said earlier, there are many more successes for you to accomplish. Stay focused!”
Meanwhile, Ramón Escobar, who last held the title of Sr VP of Network Entertainment at Telemundo, is back… as a full time consultant to “work with us on several fronts,” says a network spokesman. “In particular, he has been focusing on ARV for the last couple of weeks.”
Could his return have anything to do with her departure?
