Nancy Leal is leaving her weekend anchor job at KXTX Telemundo 39 Dallas at the end of August, after an 11-year run at that station.
She is moving to Los Angeles where she’ll co-anchor KVEA’s morning weekday newscasts at 5 and 6 am alongside Enrique Chiabra starting in mid-September.
Nancy steps into the role that will be left vacant with Dunia Elvir’s transfer to KVEA’s new 5 pm newscast, scheduled to debut on September 26.
Dunia will be paired with Julio Vaqueiro for the new 5 pm show as well as the 5:30 pm newscast. In addition to adding 5 pm to his anchoring duties, Julio will continue to anchor the 5:30, 6 and 11 pm weekday newscasts.
The switch gives Dunia a needed break from setting her alarm clock at 1 am. She had been anchoring mornings at KVEA for the past 13 years.
