Adios 'Cada Dia'

Telemundo had another bad day on Friday, dropping the network's national morning show "Cada Dia" and making some executive changes. Host Maria Antonieta Collins, who joined Telemundo from Univisión, had already said she would not renew her contract. (I'm told three staffers in Burbank lost jobs as a result of the cancellation.) Media Moves quotes Telemundo president Don Browne:

"Cada Dia is a show we believed in and very much wanted to succeed. It wasn't for lack of talent, we had the best. It wasn't for lack of passion, dedication or courage; no team had more than Cada Dia. In the end, the show was not able to generate the results that allowed us to continue our financial support."

Also, in another move Jorge Hidalgo lost the news part of his title (senior executive vice-president news & sports) and VP of News Johanna Guerra will now report to Browne.
