Univision today announced a high-profile talent change. Raúl Peimbert, who has been a news anchor at KMEX-34 in Los Angeles for the past 6 years, will leave that post to become Sr. West Coast Correspondent for Network and Affiliate News. He will be replaced by León Krauze effective December.
Raúl’s extensive career in Spanish-language television in the U.S. began in 1991. Prior to his work at KMEX-34, he was an anchor for KVEA-52, Telemundo Network and CBS Telenoticias. Before that he was co-anchor of Univision’s “Noticias y Más” (which later became “Primer Impacto.”)
This is León Krauze’s first job in the U.S. media. He was most recently anchor of the nightly newscast “Hora 21” for Televisa’s Foro TV, a 24-hr news network launched in 2010 in Mexico City. He was also host of “Segunda Emisión,” a radio magazine program on W Radio and a weekly columnist for the Mexican newspaper Milenio.
