Endy Rodríguez is no longer VP of news at WNJU Telemundo 47.
A station spokesperson confirmed his exit with the following brief statement:
“Endy Rodriguez has decided to leave the company and we have accepted his resignation. He has been with our station for nearly two decades. We thank him for his commitment to our station, and we wish him the very best.”
Rumors that Rodriguez had been terminated swirled for the past two weeks, because he was not at the station.
When asked about his absence early last week, a station spokesperson insisted Rodríguez was only “taking a few days off” and continued to be VP of news, reaffirming that stance as late as yesterday afternoon.
Rodríguez was promoted from assistant news director to VP of News at the Telemundo New York station in 2017, after Karen Méndez left the position.
He began his career as a news department intern in 2001 and worked his way up the ranks.
Over the past several months, reports have surfaced accusing Rodríguez of conflict of interest and complaints over the removal of non-Dominican talent from Telemundo 47.
Media Moves has not been able to independently verify the allegations that were published or aired on other outlets.
