Fernando del Rincón has ended his run with CNN en Español. The anchor, who joined the Atlanta-based network in October of 2010, was unable to renegotiate his contract.
According to a source, Del Rincón, host of the Spanish-language network’s 10 pm “Conclusiones,” stormed out of the newsroom yesterday before his show went on the air, despite promoting it on his Twitter account.
Just hours ago – shortly after 6 pm ET, Cynthia Hudson sent the following email to staff announcing his departure:
“I felt it was important to share that CNN en Español and Fernando del Rincón were unable to reach an agreement on a new contract.
This means that he will be leaving the network. We thank him for his years of service and wish him well.”
