Raúl González, who has been a co-host on Univision’s morning show “Despierta América” for over 12 years, has resigned. Today was his last show.
Apparently, the TV host was unable to reach an agreement to renew his contract with Univision to continue hosting the morning show.
Alberto Ciurana, Univision’s President, Programming & Content Univision Networks tweeted his goodbye, solidifying Raúl’s departure:
Gracias por estos 12 años querido @Raultvgonzalez Respetamos tu decisión de renunciar a @DespiertaAmeric Te quedas en nuestros corazones.

There is speculation that Raúl will move over to Telemundo’s morning show “Un Nuevo Día,” where former co-host Ana María Canseco landed a gig in August of 2013.
Prior to Univision, Raúl hosted a show for the Discovery Kids Latin America/Iberia cable network and alsi worked on radio as co-host of “Sobre Ruedas” on WQBA 1140 AM, as well as “Las Tardes Calientes” on 107.5 AMOR-FM.
He previously worked in television shows in his native Venezuela.
Good can’t stand him, take Tracher with him, just stay away from Telemundo, the “men” there are almost tolerable!
And the Telemundo mafia bosses, brainless as they are, will take him in … ¡ay, Dios mio!
As long as Telemundo continues to be based in Miami and controlled by ‘chicos,’ it will remain the eternal underdog.
