María Elena Salinas has been busy since leaving Univision. The longest running female network anchor in the United States will now join the CBS News team as a contributor.
The award-winning journalist will contribute reports across CBS News broadcasts and platforms and will frequently appear on coverage of the run-up to the 2020 election.
CBS News President and Senior Executive Producer Susan Zirinsky made the announcement today.
Since her departure from Univision, Salinas landed her own English-language news magazine, “The Real Story with María Elena Salinas” on Investigation Discovery.
She also covered the 2018 presidential election in Mexico for Telemundo.
