Lori Montenegro, Telemundo network’s longtime senior Washington, D.C. correspondent, is moving on to a new role. She has been named Noticias Telemundo D.C. bureau chief.
She takes over for Victoria Rivas-Vazquez, who held the position for six years before leaving the company.
Telemundo would not confirm if Montenegro would continue to do any reporting.
Montenegro is a fixture in Washington, D.C. journalism. She worked more than a dozen years as Noticias Telemundo’s correspondent in the nation’s capital, where she has also collaborated with NBC News and MSNBC.
Prior to joining Telemundo, Montenegro spent three years as D.C. correspondent for Univision affiliates. Before that, she was foreign political affairs correspondent for the United States Information Agency (USIA) from 1991 through 1993.
With Montenegro’s move to bureau chief, Cristina Londoño will become Noticias Telemundo senior correspondent in D.C.
The company would not say if her S.F.-based position will be filled or eliminated.
In a statement, Telemundo considers the double promotion part of an effort to strengthen its D.C. operations.
Last year, the network added correspondent Javier Vega to the D.C news team.
She really deserved it, congratulations Lori, she been with Noticias Telemundo in Washington since 1999. And she really good I can see success for her
I’m happy for Lori, although since Obama days she started losing credibility being so mich in love with him and now displaying so much Hate for Trump. It’s sickening. But, in reality that’s how the entire NBC Telemundo “news” operations is… Very sad, since instead of news, Latinos get just propaganda that’s victimizing our community and dividing us. They never have anything good about Trump or conservatives, and everything is always wonderful when it comes to democrats. Sad. No balance. Is it hard to ask for Telemundo and others to cover what’s good and what’s bad on both sides??? Can you credit Trump on anything? Can you see things wrong on the other side ever? Can you and Un Nuevo Dia stop just promoting anti-Tump hate and promoting democrats all the time?
Lori should be doing series about Venezuela and how Trump has been in support of Guaido and how Trump’s administration has been stirring up other countries to support the liberation of Venezuela from Socialism and its oppression.
As far as Cristina Londoño, I’m so glad that they’re finally recognizing her. She’s by far the best reporter on Spanish language news in general. She might be liberal too, I don’t know. But at least she’s Not displaying it and she attempts to look more fair than the others when she’s covering both sides. In other words: Journalism. Great for her. Hope she brings that balanced, fair and responsible insight to real NEWS, that it’s so needed in Washington DC these days!

Working in D.C. is not an easy task and is worst during a presidential campaign…… Prince, stop the hate…. real journalists are very liberal…..
LOL! Thanks George! I guess you’re right. Real “journalists” these days are Not the ones that report are the ones that do leftist propaganda. Sad!
George Branches says
A reporter is not a journalist. Prince, i thought you knew the difference

Sad but true.
C’mon guys, like you did not know how the chocolate is getting stirred

Simple. Repeat. Pretend
And, frankly, peor en “La Anglo Media”
I appreciate your reminder and clarification. And yes, here’s some good info:
“In professional news media, all reporters are journalists but not all journalists are reporters. “Reporter” is a specific role:Someone who gathers facts and information from multiple sources, verifies them and writes a story or relays (reports) those findings in a TV, radio or Internet broadcast”.
By Ashutosh Sinha, Journalist
Answered in Quora on Dec 1, 2012 · Upvoted by Andrew Smith, reporter, Newsday; has been a reporter or editor for 25 years.
So in other words… these journalists that report (in Anglo and Hispanic TV) are supposed to gather the info from MULTIPLE sources (not just friendly points of views), verify them and write findings NOT their agenda.
Latinos deserve Spanish language news outlets that would do real journalism and reporting, sharing ALL FACTS, points of views and all findings in a responsible and fair manner, with reports that would allow Latinos to analyze and make their own conclusions, whatever these may be.
Lori is good, but has been highly influenced by the biased in the media. She’s from Venezuela and that’s why I think it would be good for her to highlight Trump’s administration efforts towards liberating Venezuela from oppression and the socialists view -that by the way, are some of the same ideas the democrats want for US-…
And Cristina has generally been VERY GOOD REPORTER/JOURNALIST.

Thanks for Quoting obvious and shallow articles about semantics.
a reporter (usually works for a corporation that owns news media outlets)gets the assignment from the desk and reports the facts the producers want in the story (yep, it is not called “news”, is a “story” now). journalism is dying in this country, and only a fistful of independent outlets are fighting the establishment. Cnn, news corp (fox news networks) nbc,cbs, etc all of them are part of a big agenda: making you comfortably numb and dumb
