maria+elena+salinasMaria Elena Salinas is leaving Univision. The legendary news anchor revealed that she is soon to start new projects of her own without the TV network.

She said:

“As I announced on Univision News, after more than 36 years with Univision, I have decided it is time to change course and begin a new chapter in my career as an independent journalist and producer and dedicate more time to philanthropy, among other things. I am excited about this new phase where I will be working on projects that will allow me to reach new and diverse audiences across multiple platforms. I take with me a wealth of experiences acquired over more than three decades, and the pleasure of having worked with an extraordinary team of journalists.

I am grateful for the privilege I have had to inform and empower the Hispanic community, as I have witnessed its remarkable growth and the impact it continues to have on our society. Together, we have made history. I thank our audience for the trust and loyalty they have placed in me and in the Univision family. I want to make clear that as long as I have a voice, I will always use it to speak on behalf of our community. I will continue my work with Univision until the end of the year. In the meantime, I still have a lot of news to report on Univision evening news and many stories to share on Aquí y Ahora.”

The end of an era.
