Dr. Maritza Fuentes, who had been on staff and produced a medical segment for Univision 23 in Miami for the past 15 years, is no longer with the company.
Station management notified Fuentes on Monday that they had to let her go due to budget cuts.
Her last on-air segment was on Monday’s 11 pm newscast.
Fuentes told El Nuevo Herald she was taken aback by the news, and although management treated her “very well,” she would not sign a severance package until consulting with her attorney.
Besides working for Univision 23, Fuentes produced health stories for several affiliates.
