Former Telemundo network correspondent María Paula Ochoa has landed a job as weekday anchor at Univision San Diego.
Starting today, she will co-anchor the Entravision-owned station’s 6 and 11 pm newscasts, alongside Aranzazú Álvarez.
Ochoa steps into the seat left vacant by Tsi-tsi-ki Félix, who exited the station in March.
Ochoa arrives to San Diego from Los Angeles, where she had been a network correspondent and producer for Noticias Telemundo since 2013. She lost her job among the company’s wave of layoffs earlier this year.
She previously worked as a Miami-based correspondent for Estrella TV’s national program “En La Mira Con Enrique Gratas.”
Before that, she was a national correspondent and producer for “Al Rojo Vivo Con Maria Celeste” in the network’s LA bureau from 2009 to 2012. She also anchored news magazine Al Filo de la Noticia for then Telemundo local station KWHY’s (now a Meruelo Broadcasting station) from 2005 to 2008.
Ochoa also worked as a reporter for the short lived Azteca América station at LA’s channel 54.
