Alberto Rullán is taking on a new role as weekday anchor for Noticiero Telemundo Philadelphia.
He’ll join Iris Delgado on the anchor desk weekdays at 6 and 11 pm, starting Monday, September 30.
Rullán replaces Ramón Luis Zayas, who has been off the air for over nine months.
According to sources, Zayas has been on medical leave. A station spokesperson would not confirm the reason for his absence or address if Zayas remains with the company, but issued this statement:
“Ramon Zayas hasn’t been on air since November 2018. His presence is missed. Iris Delgado has anchored the newscasts with others filling in from time to time.”
Rullán arrives to WWSI Telemundo 62 from WNJU Telemundo 47, where he has worked as weekend anchor and breaking news reporter. He moved to New York from Puerto Rico in 2015.
Before Telemundo, he spent 15 years as previously an anchor and reporter for WAPA in Puerto Rico.
