Marina Marraco is crossing over into English-language news. She has just been hired at WESH-2 in Orlando as a reporter for “Sunrise,” the NBC affiliate’s morning newscast. She starts the new job on Oct. 22.
Marina leaves WVEN-26, the Univision affiliate in Orlando, where she has been working as a reporter since May of 2010. She was also a fill-in anchor and had been working as a correspondent for Univision network since April of last year.
About her move, she tells me: “I’m extremely excited to be joining a group of consummate professionals. This is undoubtedly a huge change in course for my career, but I could not be any happier. I leave behind many friends and great colleagues at Univision who have helped me grow tremendously.”
