Univision today announced it is laying off about 250 people company-wide as part of a restructuring.
The cuts affect editorial, including several on-air talent from stations around the country, and business-side employees.
Among the first confirmed on-air casualties: Roger Borges, an entertainment reporter at Miami’s Univision 23.
Roger had worked at the station for the past 13 years, starting first as a news reporter before landing his own entertainment segment 8 years ago. His last day was yesterday.
In Los Angeles, Alejandro Luna, sports anchor at Univision 34 for almost 5 years, is also out of a job. He had previously worked at the station as a sports anchor from 2000 to 2008.
In New York, Sports anchor José Roig was let go. He had been at Univision 41 over two decades. Univision Dallas lost weather anchor Vanessa Abuchaibe in the cuts.
Names of other laid off on-air talent sources shared with Media Moves have yet to be confirmed.
At least 15 Fusion employees, who last week voted to join the union, were also given pink slips.
