Univision 41 is relaunching its 11 pm newscast with a new format and anchor.
Starting today, Yisel Tejeda takes over the helm of “Noticias 41 Solo a las Once.” She will also co-anchor the 6 pm newscast with Adriana Vargas.
Described as a “hyperlocal in-depth newscast,” the station’s late night show will cover the day’s top stories and add panel discussions featuring experts with opposing views on selected topics.
The newscast will also include audience participation with the anchor reading viewer comments in real time via a new 84-inch mobile touch screen monitor on set.
Tejeda’s promotion to the NY station anchor desk comes after spending four years as a reporter.
Prior to joining Univision 41 in 2015, Tejeda worked as a reporter, anchor and producer for Infomás and Baynews9, Bright House Network’s Spanish-language and English-language broadcast news stations in Tampa.
The station is also implementing other anchor changes. Katiria Soto returns to mornings as co-anchor of “Al Despertar” and Adriana Vargas will only anchor the 6 pm weekday newscasts.
