A Nice Surprise On Al Rojo Vivo

While watching the 7/26/2013 airing of Al Rojo Vivo, I saw a familiar face. This happened during the featured news segment of the show.


Usually these featured reports are done by Vanessa Hauc, Carmen Dominicci, or Sofia LaChapelle. But not this time.


My initial reaction was, “Oh cool, a new Linda Candelo report”! Then I realized I wasn’t watching Univision. What the? Wait…Linda is with Telemundo now?!


Telemundo Is A Great Move For Linda Candelo

When she was at WFMZ, she was a main news anchor. It was great to see her at the news desk doing the entire broadcast.


I encourage you to watch this interview. After watching it, I hope you understand why I am a supporter. She has a great work ethic and is a good role model for anyone who wants to become a journalist.


Eventually she moved on to Univision. It appeared that her goal was to do national news broadcasts. At Univision she was able to do this. She did tons of great reports for various nationally televised Univision newscasts. Some of them included Primer Impacto, Edicion Nocturna, and Noticiero Univision.


Is Univision Too Crowded?

For example, when she covered Hector Camacho’s death. But then we wouldn’t see her again for a long time.


I guess I was just already accustom to seeing her anchor every weekday on WFMZ. The national news scene is probably much more competitive when compared to local news.


I always thought that this was one of Univision’s biggest problems. They have many great news reporters working there. I’m sure there is insane competition to get on the air of a nationally televised news broadcast.


I like to think of Univision as an All Star team. Just the fact that your on the team means your in the top of your field. However, just because you make the team doesn’t mean you get to play in the game. Sometimes I think that its too crowded and some people don’t get their chance to shine.


So why stay when you never get the chance to come off the bench and show your skills? I’m not saying this is what happened to Linda. This is just something that I have noticed for awhile.


It’s Linda Candelo’s Time To Shine

It was also great to see her back on the set. At Univision she mainly did the on location reports.


The last time she was on set at Univision was Despeirta America. That was a long time ago. I’m just happy to see her get the VIP treatment, because she definitely deserves it.


Ever since she started at Telemundo, things seem to be going well for her. She is definitely putting in 110% on her reports.


She is also letting off an extra excited happy type vibe while doing her reports. So I can only assume that the Telemundo family has welcomed her with open arms. Which is great!


Currently all of her reports have been on Al Rojo Vivo. However, I think its only a matter of time before she makes a Noticiero Telemundo appearance.


Congratulations Linda Candelo

Being able to work with legends like Maria Celeste Arraras and Vanessa Hauc has to be a great experience.


If you are a Linda Candelo supporter, I highly recommend visiting her social media pages. She has a Facebook Fan Page and a Twitter account.


Since joining Telemundo, she has been updating them very frequently. Definitely “Follow” and “Like” them to show your support. While your there, be sure to tell her congratulations. I’m sure she would love to hear it.
