After the departure of Myrka Dellanos from its national news program and Mirthala Salinas’ resignation from its weekday afternoon newscasts in May, Estrella TV has officially announced their replacements.
Adriana Ruggiero, 11 pm anchor of LA’s KRCA-62 newscast, has taken over Myrka’s role as anchor of “Noticiero Estrella TV” at 5:30 pm ET.
Adriana was replaced at 11 pm by Hilda Gutiérrez, who was moved from the 12 noon newscast to share the anchor desk with Karla Amezola.
Due to Mirthala’s vacancy and Hilda’s move to evenings, two anchor spots were left open.
In order to fill those spots, management promoted reporter Dulce Castellanos to 12 pm anchor and paired her with Rosy Martell, who had previously anchored sports and weather.
An attorney and anchor in her native Venezuela, Adriana moved to Los Angeles in 2012, where she began as a reporter for “Noticias 62,” before co-anchoring the station’s 5 and 11 pm newscasts.
Dulce and Hilda both began their broadcast careers at KRCA-62. Dulce started as a reporter for Noticias 62 in 2012 and Hilda as an associate producer for “Noticias 62 En Vivo” in 2010, before moving to a reporter position.
Rosy began her broadcast journey with TV Azteca in 2003. She has been an anchor and reporter for multiple shows, including Azteca’s “Al Extremo.”
She joined Estrella TV as a sports anchor in 2013, before getting moved to the weekday noon newscast.
“We’re very excited about promoting the new generation of Latino journalists and news anchors in this key market,” Andrés Angulo, VP of News tells Media Moves. “We truly are a source of professional growth, by promoting from within.”
