Víctor Hugo Rodríguez left his reporter job at KVEA-52 for family reasons. He returned to Phoenix to be close to his daughter. His last day in L.A. was Aug. 30. He had been with the Telemundo O&O since Feb. of 2012.
Now, he’s leaving the television industry. He has accepted a job as a Language Arts teacher at Lowell Elementary School in Phoenix. He starts the new job next Monday, Sept. 16.
“Being able to work for Telemundo Los Angeles was a dream come true. That was the first TV station I visited while I was still in college,” Víctor Hugo tells me. “I did my internship at KVEA in spring 2000. However, due to a legal matter pertaining my daughter, I decided to move back to Phoenix…. There is no doubt in my heart I made the right decision.”
Prior to moving to L.A., Víctor Hugo worked for 9 years as a reporter for KTVW-33, the Univision O&O in Phoenix. He previously spent 2 years as a segment producer for KWHY-22 in L.A. and a reporter at KUVS-19, Univision Sacramento.
