Enrique Acevedo is returning to Mexico and Televisa, where he’ll take over as news anchor for primetime weeknight newscast En Punto, previously known as Noticiero Televisa, starting January 9, 2023.
Acevedo will also continue to be a CBS News contributor from Mexico City.
In making the announcement, EVP of Newsgathering Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews told staff Acevedo’s new CBS News role would be “bolstering our reporting and presence in the region.”
Acevedo joined CBS News in 2020 as a correspondent for the short-lived streaming series 60 Minutes+, a spinoff of 60 Minutes Sunday newsmagazine.
He has since reported on a wide range of issues, including elections, the U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic at the U.S.-Mexico border and most recently, allegations of false and misleading information targeting Latinos on Spanish-language radio for CBS Mornings.
He was also a guest co-host for CBS This Morning in May 2021.
Before CBS News, he spent 8 years as an anchor for Univision network’s late night newscast.
Acevedo arrived to the U.S. in 2011 as a Miami-based Telemundo network news correspondent from Mexico, where he had worked as a reporter and anchor for Televisa’s cable network ForoTV.
