Just one month after he quit his gig as host of Univision’s “Despierta América,” Raúl González has a new job with the competition.
Telemundo announced today that Raúl has joined the network, where he’ll develop and host a new variety series and contribute to multiple specials.
He’s already lined up for the first special: the Billboard Latin Music Awards to be broadcast live on Telemundo on April 24th at 7 pm.
Raúl abruptly left Univision after 13 years as co-host of “Despierta América.” His last day on the air was February 27 and that same day, rumors were swirling about a possible jump to Telemundo.
Raúl began his career in children’s theater in his native Caracas. In his early twenties, he hosted a kids’ TV show, “Supercrópolis,” and in 1994 he moved to Miami. In 2001, he became one of the hosts of Univision’s “Despierta America.”
una persona tan decente como lo es Raul Gonzalez le va muy bien donde sea que se encuentre, que Dios lo bendiga siempre, ahora ya no tengo una razon de ver Despierta America no mas, y claro es solamente negocio. yo lo seguire en Telemundo
