Ruiz leaves Telemundo Houston

Sussy RuizSussy Ruiz has left her position as Assistant News Director at Telemundo KTMD in Houston. She had been in the role since December of 2016.

Her departure was announced to staff on Tuesday, September 26, marking that day as her last. During her farewell announcement, she told her colleagues she was leaving to spend more time with her family.

Earlier this year, Ruiz shared on social media she was pregnant with her second child. She’s due in December.

Before joining Telemundo Houston, she spent 15 years at Univision, where she worked her way up to Regional Manager of Broadcast and Digital News for the company’s Television Group.

Ruiz is the second person, since the Assistant News Director position was created in 2016, to leave the job in less than a year’s time. Her predecessor, Andrea Ospina, occupied the role less than five months, before accepting a job at Estrella TV in Los Angeles.

  1. HoustonMedia says:

    But at least Sussy was a lot kinder and nicer than Andrea Ospin who’s completely a b$@ch!
    At least Sussie is marrie and has family and values that! Andrea is single and has no life at ALL!

  2. HoustonMedia says:

    No way nobody even wanted Andrea in Houston Telemundo let’s get right. Some of us try so hard to get rid of her, until she finally left on her own. If she’s reading this and I hope she is and I want everybody to know that. Andrea don’t ever come back to Houston Telemundo!!

    Univision Dallas

    Someone else left ?

    Ps: Estrella TV is a perfect match for you.
