Stephanie Himonidis, better known as Chiquibaby, and whom we see every morning driving ‘Hoy Día’ from the Telemundo screen, was ready to go to the Qatar 2022 World Cup with the sports team, but they cancel their coverage days after traveling.
As we have been telling you, There are many changes that are coming for Telemundobeginning with the morning show, which moved out of the news department and back into the entertainment department. Confirmed by the network itself with a reaction they sent us, there will be changes.
We tell you that among these changes, also we will stop seeing several of the talents of the show. This will be effective during the World Cupwell, we will see little or nothing of the morning show, since, as we know, Telemundo has the rights to broadcast the World CupY most of the games are at dawn/morning due to the time difference.
Beyond this, which we had already confirmed, Chiquibaby shared in ‘Hoy Día’ that she would be part of the coverageeven though in The personal thing would be a great sacrifice to be away from her baby Capri Blu for 6 weeks, she understood that it was a great professional opportunityand not only that, andIt was a mandate from the company for which you work and with whom you still have a contract.
However, and here is the surprise for her and for you who are finding outwe learned from people that being part of the team that travels to the World Cup, that Chiquibaby will no longer be part of the game. To the journalist who has won 6 Emmys, days away from traveling, They would have notified him, having even coordinated everything in his personal life and with his baby to be able to travel, that he will no longer be part of the professionals who cover the most important sports festival in Doha.
The reason? The official one would be an adjustment in the budget and some cuts due to how expensive it would be at the level of accommodation expenses, travel, etc. The unofficial version says that it could have to do with the changes that we have told you and what they would be thinking of implementing both in content, as new talent that they would bring from outside even the country.
We reached out to the team of Stephanie Himonidis, who we are told is living through hours of distress about her fate, to find out how she feelsbut so far we have not received a response.
in the same way We wrote an e-mail to Telemundo’s public relations department, who replied: “We have no comment on this. Thank you”.
What did Telemundo tell us about the changes?
“In 2021, we successfully expanded today as our audience sought more news and information to better navigate the COVID pandemic.. Now our audience is starting to look for more entertainment content in the morningsso we are evolving the program, before the end of the year, to a morning variety, news and entertainment program. With this new format, hoyDía will continue to have an important component of national and local news and will expand its presence on all platforms, including on demand, streaming and social networks“.
For now, after having received official confirmation of the change of bosses from news to entertainmentand of the future destiny of which they have not been clear, both the talents and the workers behind the camera live a day to day with a lot of nervousness caused by uncertainty.
