Move over Don Francisco, Spanish television personality Cristina Saralegui is taking over.
The Cuban born Saralegui is developing a weekly variety program on Telemundo. She’ll also be executive producer of the new show as well as the host.
"I am thrilled to be joining the Telemundo family in this next chapter of my career. Together, I look forward to creating ground breaking television that will entertain, inform, and inspire my people."
Don Browne, President of Telemundo, adds:
"I've admired and respected Cristina for years. She personifies the American dream and she inspires and empowers Hispanics throughout the US. Her coming to Telemundo is truly a dream come true.”
The 63-year-old icon and twelve-time Emmy-award winner’s new gig is set to air later this year.
We can’t wait to watch the show. We might need to make a cameo as well.
