Rebeka has been in for about 5 years Telemundo, was a presenter in Phoenix, Arizona, and is currently a news correspondent from New York. In addition, she is the author of the book ‘Emotional Bitch’, in which she reveals the emotional and co-dependency problems that led her to live a period of great suffering.
How did Rebeka Smyth come to be chosen to replace María Celeste? According to a source that works within the chain, lafter what Dark Dellanos decided to resign out of loyalty to her friend, they began to look for who could be the journalist who would fill that space.
Although the first days there was talk of Jessica Carrillo, who is already part of the Telemundo afternoon show, the truth is that in three weeks she will be a mother, and will take a few months of motherhood. Therefore, although the Mexican journalist will continue within the program, she would not be the one they would have thought of for the direct replacement of MC.
It was there that someone would have put Rebeka’s name on the table, and on Thursday they would have made the proposal to the journalist of Mexican origin … They would immediately have started negotiations with her manager, and on Friday she already traveled to Miami.
With a little more than a year of marriage, and as happened to Michelle Galvan when they proposed to replace Barbara Bermudo, Rebeka and her husband began their move to Miami where they are both currently. This Monday, at noon, she would be signing her contract as the new presenter of ‘Al Rojo Vivo’, in a stage where they plan to change the orientation of the show.
According to what our source informed us, in the early afternoon, Rebeka will have her first rehearsal with Jessica, who these days has been the host of those who are leaving, and today who is joining the program.
Without saying it directly, on the morning of his debut, Smyth let him glimpse in a post that he uploaded to his Instagram account, what is coming in his career:
“You have plans and life will laugh at them. Be clear about your goals but always let life surprise you. Enjoying my new city like crazy #miami #feelingblessed 💛 “.
Let us remember that this past Wednesday we were surprised with the news that, almost 20 years after his hiring, Telemundo had decided to fire and disengage from María Celeste Arrarás. Who was her guest co-host during the pandemic, Myrka Dellanos, and who was supposed to be her replacement, resigned out of solidarity with her friend.
Today a new stage will begin in the show that Arrarás devised, put together and made grow, when he went from Univision to Telemundo, ‘Al Rojo Vivo con María Celeste’, which since Thursday lost the last two words of its title, the name of the Puerto Rican journalist.
