Social media is abuzz as Adamari López reportedly fired from Telemundo’s ‘Hoy Día’ morning show

The beloved Puerto Rican-born anchorwoman reportedly received the notice of her dismissal at the end of the last broadcast of "Hoy día".

During the last hours, the name of Adamari López has topped the list of trends in different social networks because it was reported that after eleven years in Telemundo, the beloved hostess has been fired from the TV station, so the news took by surprise the fans of “Hoy Día,” who in social networks have lamented the departure of the actress from the successful morning show.

The person in charge of announcing this news was the entertainment journalist Mandy Fridmann, who said through her social networks that at the end of the broadcast of “Hoy Día” this Thursday, April 6, the host was summoned to the human resources area of the TV station where she was informed that she would no longer belong to the network, so as of tomorrow she will no longer be able to work in the successful morning show as she has usually done for the last eleven years.

Will she say goodbye to her audience? No, although they may make her record a video, we will no longer see her on ‘Hoy Día’ accompanying what was until today, her new partners: Penélope Menchaca, Andrea Meza, and Daniel Arenas.

Why was she removed? Although there is no official version of the decision, everything indicates that it was something that was already planned since the change to the new format of ‘Hoy Día,’ the idea of the new directors, with Sandra Semester at the head, would have been that Adamari would stay only a few months to receive her new partners and then take her off.

Is her contract up? No, we can confirm that Adamari still had a contract until the end of June. However, until yesterday, she had not been called to renew it, and she only heard from her bosses today when they announced that she was out.

Let’s remember that Adamari was hired by Telemundo 12 years ago for her debut as host of ‘Un Nuevo Día.’ There, she went through incredible moments and some very hard ones. Her pregnancy, the birth of Alaïa, her mother and father’s death, pneumonia that almost led her to death, and her separation from Toni Costa.

Now it’s time for her to embark on a new personal and professional path and say goodbye to a cycle she thought would last many more years.

El Diario contacted Telemundo to get a reaction from the network, and this is what they told us:

“After 11 years with Telemundo, Telemundo, and Adamari Lopez mutually decided that this is the right time for her to leave her role as host of Hoy Dia. Adamari has been integral to Telemundo’s mornings for over a decade, helping Hispanics start their day with her charming and energetic personality. Adamari is a talented, multi-faceted television host who has been a part of numerous network specials and programs, always connecting with and serving our viewers with her charisma, authenticity, and charm. We are deeply grateful for her continued dedication to Telemundo and look forward to collaborating with her on future projects.
