WSCV Telemundo 51 today announced Fausto Malavé is officially the station’s new primetime co-anchor, effective immediately. He’ll be co-anchoring the 5:30, 6 and 11 pm weekday newscasts with Daisy Ballmajó.

Fausto joined Telemundo 51 as a reporter in 2007 and became weekend co-anchor in 2012. He was previously host of Galavisión’s “El Rastro del Crimen” and also reported for WLTV 23.
Before moving to Miami, he worked in his native Venezuela as anchor of “Noticiero Estelar” and host of the political opinion show “Sin Reservas” on the Venevisión Network. He also worked as host and producer of the political program ¿Quién Tiene la Razón? Venezuela’s Televen channel.
