Former Entravision Laredo anchor Miguel Amante has scored a new job at Telemundo Laredo.
He’s now anchor and producer of the station’s 5 and 10 pm newscasts, joining co-anchor Lupita Benavides.
His on-air debut was yesterday, with his new colleagues welcoming him to the station.
Amante was one of the many staffers who lost their jobs when Entravision Laredo shut down the newscast on February 28.
Telemundo Laredo picked up his Entravision co-worker, reporter Marissa limón, who started working there earlier this month.
Amante had been lead anchor at Entravision Laredo since 2013.
He previously worked at Central Florida News 13 En Español as a reporter/MMJ/producer. Before that, he was anchor/reporter for Telemundo’s KXTX and the Telemundo Production Center (TPC) in Dallas.
