Best of luck to these wonderful individuals. I had the opportunity to work with many of them and they are a great asset. Unfortunately, Uni and TLMD didn’t see their talent. Best of luck amigos.

They snatched great talent! I hope they’re making good money with this new project. Univision and Telemundo often don’t value the talent they have and continue to overwork them and burn them out. I hope they find a better life being part of The Weather Channel.
