Cristina Saralegui, who now openly admits to having been forced out of Univision after more than 20 years, says she has landed a new job… and one that’s “much better than the last one,” she told the L.A. Times.
She can’t disclose what that new job is yet, because her contract with Univision doesn’t end until Dec. 31. But she says she’ll be back on the air in March.
Cristina told the LAT that Univision’s management “essentially fired her,” asking her to drop her weekly talk show and offering her 2 yearly specials “for a pittance, a salary that I consider a tip for a woman who has been doing a job for this many years.”
The final “Show de Cristina,” which has already been taped, airs tonight on Univision.
It's a fact that age plays a big role in media among the Hispanics. But if Univision wants to attract a younger generation of viewers, it needs more than young talent. It needs more new and creative programs.
If you’re bilingual in this country, Univision and Telemundo are not your choice for News and entertainment.
The typical male latino prefers a busty beauty telling them about the plane crash, or the earthquake in mexico.
Maria Elena Salinas and Teresa Rodriguez use a lot of blond highlights, but that doesn’t really help, their age is written all over their face and thick bodies.
Eventually youth and beauty will play a role when it comes to replacing these two hacks, who I’m really sick of looking at, but I love the reports on Aqui y Ahora, so I have to suffer.
