Starting Monday, October 23, he’ll co-anchor the 5 and 5:30 pm weekday editions of “Noticiero 47 Telemundo,” alongside Yaima Crespo.

Del Villar has had his share of moves within the network. He first joined Telemundo in 2013 as a correspondent and fill-in presenter several of the network’s programs and was promoted to weekend anchor when “Noticiero Telemundo Fin de Semana” launched a year later. But in March of 2016, he was bumped from the anchor desk to make way for Luis Carlos Vélez, who took over the role.
Prior to joining Telemundo network, del Villar was anchor of “Las Noticias,” Televisa’s primetime newscast in Monterrey, Mexico for 12 years. He also worked as a news director and anchor for several radio networks, including MVS, Radio Fórmula and Núcleo Radio Monterrey for more than 10 years.
