In  a press release, Univision announced his appointment as chief anchor in an expanded role that includes Local TV, Radio and Digital.

Due to a non-compete clause in his contract,  Hernández will not seen on WLTV until the Fall.

Telemundo 51 was unable to reach an agreement to renew his contract, which expired March 1.

According to inside sources, Ambrosio was making $500,000 a year and Univision 23 outbid Telemundo 51 in an effort to have him switch networks.

Over half a million bucks to Anchor a local Spanish newscast?!
