Sarcos and Canseco exit “Un Nuevo Día”; Telemundo adds Regil

Daniel Sarcos, Ana Maria Canseco and Marco Antonio Regil.

Telemundo is changing the face of its morning show host team.

Seven years after co-hosting “Un Nuevo Día,” Daniel Sarcos is moving on to host his own show in the Dominican Republic. Today was his last day.

Ana María Canseco is also exiting the weekday morning show she joined 5 years ago. She announced her departure on Monday, but there is no final date yet for her last day on the air.

An inside source told Media Moves last week of the departures of both hosts, but the company would not confirm them.

Today, Telemundo announced it is adding Mexican TV personality Marco Antonio Regil as morning show co-host.

Regil will join Rashel Díaz and Adamari López starting Monday, April 16.

Regil has hosted multiple television shows in Mexico, the United States and Latin America during his 33-year career, covering a variety of genres, including game shows “100 Latinos Dijeron,” “Atinale al Precio,” and “Minuto Para Ganar (Minute to Win It). He has also hosted “Teletón Mexico.”

Regil will co-host Telemundo’s upcoming “Billboard Latin Music Awards 2018” on April 26.

    It’s really sad to see Daniel leave the show. He did such an awesome job. It would be very difficult to fill his slot with his great humor and talent. This morning was very sad. We wish him well and hope that Telemundo will still keep him somehow linked to the network.
    Ana Maria will also be missed. She had a good heart and always had the right words for things and good perspective. It’s sad to see them both leave and I wonder if the show will continue being as good has it has been for these past years.
    Marco Antonio Regil is very talented and we wish him the best of lucks too. We just think they’ll need to also bring someone like Raul Gonzalez to compliment the team bringing the spontaneous humor that Sarcos always added to the show.
    And what about Zuleyka??? Is she not going to be on the show??? We hope she remains with them too!

  2. Prince says:

    Well, I just said because Raul can be spontaneously funny like Daniel was and that is not easy to find. Any other suggestions?

      Well, let’s begin by hiring talents that won’t be fired just for the sake of “no likable to the bosses anymore”. Or that wont get renewed for that matter.

  3. Prince says:

    Not Rocket Science that’s a good point. We all know that Mr. Conde has that reputation… and in fact, this is quite common in the industry.

    Sad that they are leaving. I had enjoyed them every morning. I wish them luck to both of them in their new journey and good luck to the new host.
