Patricia Janiot announces departure from CNNE

Patricia JaniotCNN en Español senior anchor Patricia Janiot is leaving the network after almost 26 years.

She announced her departure – first to colleagues and then on live television during her “Panorama Mundial” newscast tonight, saying she had decided to accept a new position that would “broaden her horizons” and bring “new challenges” to her journalism career, echoing the announcement on social media.

Multiple sources have confirmed to Media Moves that her “new challenge” will be as an anchor at Univision network, based in Miami.

Janiot joined CNN in 1992, anchoring Noticiero Telemundo CNN with Jorge Gestoso. The CNN-produced newscast aired on Telemundo, before the network launched its own shows. She would later become CNNE’s main anchor, alongside Gestoso, when the network launched its 24-hour cable news operations in 1997.

Before joining CNN, she was an anchor at Univision 34 in Los Angeles.

In her 2:24 announcement to viewers at the top of her newscast she expressed her gratitude to CNN and her colleagues:

“CNN has helped me be better. I don’t have enough words to express what the great CNN family and this group of committed professionals, who I greatly respect have contributed to me in more than 25 years. I owe them my infinite gratitude.”

Janiot’s last day at CNNE is November 17.

    Debe ser cuestion de dinero, porque en lo que compete a la profesion, Univision es un paso hacia atras.
