The onetime rising star at Telemundo whose career burned up in the wreckage of an affair with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has taken the familiar post-TV route — AM radio. Tomorrow's edition of Hoy will report, in Spanish, that Salinas is now a co-anchor of "Hoy por Hoy" on 690 XTRA AM in Los Angeles. The shows airs Monday through Friday.
"She is with me since yesterday (Monday), but I canít tell you much because there will be something official," said Gerardo Lorenz, who heads the morning show that Salinas joined.
The story doesn't yet show up on Hoyinternet.com. Update: It's up now. I'm quoted by reporter Francisco Castro, as is Julio Moran of the California Chicano News Media Association.
