Estrella TV names anchor Pedro Ferriz Hijar VP of National News

Pedro Ferriz HijarLBI Media has decided to promote Estrella TV network national news anchor Pedro Ferriz Hijar to VP of national news, effective immediately.

He takes over the position left vacant earlier this year after the forced departure of Andrés Angulo following sexual harassment complaints and lawsuits filed by former anchors Karla Amezola and Adriana Ruggiero, which are still pending.

Ferriz Hijar, who will continue his role as news anchor, will be responsible for the strategic planning and management of the network’s news division, as well as production of all news-related programing.

Prior to joining Estrella TV as anchor of its national newscast “Cierre de Edición” in February 2016, he was an anchor for Efekto TV and hosted a 3-hour nightly program on Poder México Radio.

    O sea, Ferriz el hijito delincuenton de Papa, junto a la incapaz Ospina.
    Duo perfecto.
    Oh Estrellada TV, you just can’t help it.

    Bueno, por lo menos habra un mexicano, de dudosa procedencia, pero mexicano; porque la mafia colombiana tiene tomado ese canal, preguntenme a mi. El canal que menos mexicanos tiene en noticias.

  5. Mike the Mechanic says:

    Peor que la mafia colombiana que tenemos aca en Univision Network, esa misma que la embarro en Bogota y ahora le hace aqui el dirty work a Azcarraguita?
    No creo !
    Apenas, justificar una mafia por otra, es lo indicado?
    Lo de Estrella TV fue, es y sera, dead on arrival.

    • Manny Restrepo says:

      Mucha razón tienes Mike, aunque soy de ese país, me parece absurdo lo que hacen esos ” mafia ejecutivos paisas de segunda”. Vean a su talento caray! Malisimos en verdad. Les quitas el telepromter y se mueren. Imagina que empezamos a extranar aquí a los cubanos que estaban apoderados de la cadena. Que bajo hemos caído. De Estrella? 0 a la izquierda.

    Felicidades y Viva Mexico
