Ana María Canseco said her final good-bye this morning at the end of “Despierta América,” the show she has co-hosted since its launch in 1997.
She expressed her gratitude for the many years she was with the network. She also thanked her colleagues and her fans for the outpouring of support during her run on the show, after which they aired a 49 second retrospective on her career, including her time on “Despierta América.”
Ana María was the last host from the original team to be removed from show. Her colleague Fernando Arau was ousted in February of 2009.
It was time for her to move on and grow up, she had not much to offer, cute face no brains. I wish her new opportunities where she can learn, grow, be a real contributor to the latin community and be successful.
The show became stale, boring with the stupid dressed dogs. Not to mention poor Spanish.
On another note (Nothing to do with Canseco):
The men running Univision and Telefutura have a fixation with presenting women dressed like prostitutes (for their own pleasure I'm sure). It is degrading to decent latino-women to be portrayed in this manner and offensive to decent latino men.
I often wonder what image the media is projecting to the world about latin women; and worse what the young generation is learning from these women that are so frivolous and brainless to say the least.
New management should change that pattern and do much better. Assume moral and civic responsibility.
Thanks for the opportunity to express my view.

Liliana, you are sooooo right.
I am an educated Latino man in my mid 30s.
Sadly, Univision does not care about people like you or me.
Let's face it. The bulk of our community (and Univision's viewership) is uneducated, hardly speak English. The know very little – in anything – about world news, culture, science BUT, they can tell you what celebrity is sleeping with who and who had a boobs job done thanks to Spanish Media like Univision
Very sad, indeed.
That's not to say that this kind of "dumbing-down" doesn't happen in the English media as well. The tragic part is that, in contrast to the English-speaking population, Spanish-speakers don't really have other options for TV entertainment. Telemundo? They are just copying whatever Univision does. Estrella TV? They are even worse that Univision.
