Alex Hernández is no longer Telemundo 60’s main anchor. The San Antonio station did not renew his contract.
A spokesperson for the station confirmed his departure and said they are “conducting a search for a news co-anchor to present our weekday afternoon and evening newscasts alongside Arlena Amaro.”
Hernández had been co-anchoring the 5 and 10 pm weekday newscasts with Amaro.
Santiago Gallego, who last year was promoted to anchor for the launch of KVDA’s 4 and 4:30 pm newscasts, is taking over the 5 and 10 pm shows on an interim basis.
Hernández had been at the station since 2013. Before KVDA, he was Operations Manager for Radio Formula Network 102.3FM from 2011 to 2013.
He previously worked as sports anchor for KWEX Univision San Antonio from 2010 to 2011.
