María, whose real name is María Albisu-Twyman, has taken a full-time job at the Bishop Sullivan Center. According to Bottom Line Communications, she had been volunteering for the non-profit charity organization for several years.
The Cuban-American journalist sued the Kansas City ABC affiliate and its parent company, Hearst-Argyle Stations in 2008 for age and sex discrimination.
The station reached a confidential settlement in 2010 with María and the two other female on-air personalities, Peggy Breit and Kelly Eckerman.
