The father of Bárbara Camilia, daughter of Carolina Sandoval, would have heard the news this afternoon, without suspecting that there was a dismissal for him.

Something similar would have happened to his colleague and partner Copá Álvarez and Freddy Lomeli. In fact, these layoffs would have made taking a drastic measure in the sports department, which will directly affect the show with the highest rating in the daytime segment of the network: ‘En Casa con Telemundo’.

Why? Because Ana Jurka, one of the pillars of the show, would no longer be there, as of February 17Unlike his peers, she would stay in the chain, but it would become exclusively sports.

In addition to being the representative of everything that has to do with official sports together with Andrés Cantor, she should be in charge of the other shows that her colleagues who were fired did.

What will happen to ‘At Home with Telemundo’? For now Only the presenter and reigning in the show will remain, Carlos Adyan. Although Aleyda Ortíz would be a part, let’s remember that she is still only a collaborator and has not been hired by the chain. Too it is said that the new executive, Sandra Smester, could bring one of her favorite talents from Mexico to add to the showbut the latter has not been confirmed, not even unofficially.

Let’s remember that just as they started in 2023, they closed 2022 when they dismantled ‘Hoy Día’, taking out Chiquibaby, chef Alferedo Oropeza and Rebeka Smyth. Also Rodner Figueroa from ‘Al Rojo Vivo’. Fairly with the same contrast, while they celebrated the success and the rating that the broadcast of the Qatar World Cup had brought them.

Why these layoffs? At the close of this article We have not received a response from Telemundo why they are making this decision at the beginning of the year.

Let’s remember that Univision has also started the year with layoffs or non-renewal of contracts such as the case of Carlos Calderón, Andrea Chediak, the cancellation of ‘Despierta América en Domingo’ and some reporters from ‘First Impact’, and the newscasts.
