Ana Patricia Candiani is joining Univision 41 New York as an anchor for the station’s weekday 5-6 am morning show “Al Despertar” and 12:30 pm newscast “Edición Digital.”
She’ll be co-anchoring both shows with Rafael Bello, who has been doing the job solo since December 2021.
Candiani’s on-air debut is June 13.
She makes the move from Los Angeles, where she had been based for more than a decade.
Candiani was KVEA Telemundo 52’s main anchor from January 2011 until August 2020, when the station laid her off as part of a series of nation-wide cuts.
Earlier this year, she joined local news station startup Visión Latina as an anchor.
Before her move to L.A., she spent almost three years as a freelance journalist for Univisión and CNN en Español.
Candiani was previously a news anchor and reporter for Telemundo Network. Her past experience also includes roles as anchor for now defunct Radio Unica and CBS Telenoticias.
