Former Telemundo, MegaTV and Univision television host Poncho de Anda has landed a gig as host of MundoFox’s “El Factor X.”
The new singing competition marks Poncho’s return to broadcast television after mysteriously disappearing from “Despierta América” a year ago. At the time, Univision reps refused to comment on his absence/departure.
Poncho will join previously announced judges: award-winning Latin recording artists Belinda and Chino & Nacho, as well as actress Angélica María.
Poncho, who started his career in radio as a host and producer in his native Mexico, is best known to U.S. audiences as co-host of Univision’s morning show “Despierta América” and Telemundo’s “Cada Dia.”
He has also hosted the reality show “Dale Con Ganas” and was co-host for Emilio Estefan’s reality show “Nuevas Voces de América.” He has also presented several special events, including the Billboard Latin Music Awards Red Carpet Show and the Miss Universe Pageant.
