Univision says Adios to Weeknight News Anchor Edna Schmidt
Earlier this year, Edna was taken off the weekend news anchor desk, along with co-host Enrique Teuteló, as the network made talent changes. Enrique was fired and Edna disappeared for a few weeks, but was later made co-anchor of the weeknight 11:30 p.m. news with former Premier Impacto anchor Ilia Calderón.
Univision has not released any statements regarding Schmidt.
Prior to the talent changes, Edna had been weekend anchor of “Noticiero Univision” since 2005. She was previously news anchor for “Noticias Al Minuto” on TeleFutura and a correspondent and regular contributor for news magazine “Aquí y Ahora.” Before that, she spent 10 years in Chicago as anchor for Univision’s WGBO-66, reports Media Moves.
