Enrique Acevedo is getting some high profile exposure on CBS News this coming week. He’ll be guest co-host on CBS This Morning May 24-28, filling in for Tony Dokoupil, who is out on paternity leave.
He is the second former Univision network anchor to step in as a guest co-host on the CBS’s morning show. María Elena Salinas filled in for Gayle King in 2019.
Acevedo joined CBS news as a correspondent for 60 Minutes+, the streaming edition of the 60 Minutes Sunday newsmagazine in the summer of 2020. Since joining CBS, he has also contributed to broadcast coverage for the network, including Election Night 2020.
He previously worked as anchor of Noticiero Univision’s Edición Nocturna, since 2012.
While at Univision, he was tapped for the short-lived 60 MINUTES program 60 IN 6 on the now defunct Quibi platform.
Prior to Univision, Acevedo spent a year as a Telemundo network news correspondent, arriving to the U.S. from Televisa.
