Telemundo Philadelphia has made two key hires ahead of the launch of local newscasts next year: Claribel Collazo joins the station as assistant news director and Ramon Zayas (pictured) has been named 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. anchor.
Zayas joins WWSI from Telemundo Network News in Miami, where he has been the anchor of “Un Nuevo Dia” since 2011.
“We are thrilled to welcome Ramon to our growing team,” Anzio Williams, vice president of news for Telemundo Philadelphia and WCAU, said in a statement. “He brings a wealth of journalism and broadcasting experience with him, and will play a vital role as we prepare for the launch of our January newscast.”
Collazo was most recently the news director at Telemundo Orlando.
“I’m looking forward to being a part of this news team,” she said. “I believe in connecting with the community and covering real issues with a team of trusted journalists.”
