Her last day on the air was Friday, but she announced her departure on social media with the following message:
“I’m not one for good-byes and that’s why I didn’t do it on the air. Friday was my last day at Estrella TV. It was a difficult decision, yet the best. I need to dedicate more time to my children. I thank you for all your support. I met fine people at Estrella TV…. Mr. Liberman, thanks for everything.” (post embedded below)
