Daniel Viotto returns to the anchor desk after an 8-year absence from television news.
The former CNN en Español anchor, who was part of the team that launched the cable network’s 24-hour news operations in 1997, will now help Cox Media kickstart “Noticias Charlotte.”
Viotto will anchor weekday 5 and 6 pm ET newscasts and will also be Managing Editor.
“Noticias Charlotte” will debut Monday July 2 at 6 pm.
Due to World Cup programming, the newscast will only air at 6 pm on July 2, 3, 6, 10 and 11.
“Noticias Charlotte” will be the first and only Spanish-language television newscasts in Charlotte.
Viotto was most recently Video Content Manager for Cox’s Spanish-language online property Mundo Hispánico, a role he has held since 2014.
He previously spent 14 years at CNNE in Atlanta, leaving in 2011. He went on to co-found an online news start-up, before taking a job at Cox Media.
Viotto also worked as a reporter at KVEA Telemundo 52 and KMEX Univision 34 in Los Angeles from 1993 to 1996.
