Telemundo Sacramento now has a weekday local newscast – just in time for elections.
Noticiero Telemundo 33 debuted today at 6 pm. It’s KCSO’s first ever local newscast. The newscast will air Monday through Friday from 6 to 6:30 pm.
News Director Florentino Mesa and Regina Guillén are the newscast’s co-anchors. Susanna González and Matthew Godinez are the team’s multimedia journalists.
A native of Colombia, Florentino started his U.S. broadcast career in 1998, where he has worked as News Director for the now-defunct Radio Única and anchor for Univision 67 in Monterey, CA and Grupo Latino de Radio.
Regina, who is originally from El Salvador, has previously worked as a reporter for Mundo Fox Noticias 22 and a reporter for Univision Las Vegas.
Matthew previously worked as a reporter for KRCA 62 in Los Angeles. Before moving to Sacramento, Susanna worked as a news briefs anchor and reporter at KSNO Telemundo 51 Fresno.
KCSO is a Serestar Communications-run Telemundo affiliate.
Actually this is not Telemundo Sacramento first attempt at a local newscast. Back when they signed on in 1999 they launched spanish-language language newscast it was cancelled in 2005 due to low ratings
And I suggest them get an 11pm newscast to to better compete with KUVS’s well known established Univisión spanish-lanaguage newscast. KUVS finally has competition at 6pm but after year of this newscast if successful an 11pm newscast is needed. However KUVS may now how spanish-lanugage competition at 6pm, but they still have more newscast than this station including in morning,evenings,nights, and weekends. I’ll be closely watching this.
