Three weeks after Rodner Figueroa was fired from Univision for making racist remarks about First Lady Michelle Obama, Univision has finally announced who will be replacing the popular TV host on the hit Sunday night gossip show, Sal y Pimienta.
According to The Huffington Post Voces, Univision released a press release on Wednesday announcing Figueroa’s replacements (yes, there’s more than one!), and they are Jomari Goyso and Carlos Calderón — both of whom are already well known to Univision audiences.
Goyso is one of the judges of the networks hit reality competition, Nuestra Belleza Latina, while Calderon is a co-host on the morning talk show, El Gordo y la Flaca. Both will join Sal y Pimienta co-host Lourdes Stephen on the Sunday, April 5th episode.
Carlos Calderón and Jomari Goyso are beloved by our audience, Alberto Ciurana, President of Programing and Content at Univision, said in a statement on Wednesday. We know that Lourdes, Carlos and Jomari will maintain and elevate the quality of the show.
