Through his Instagram account, and with a recorded video, Janiot clarified why his relationship with the chain where he worked for the last 5 years endedafter resigning from CNN en Español, to be the news head of the last newscast of the day.
“I owed you this message of thanks for those beautiful words that you have written me in recent days. Messages of encouragement, congratulations, thanks, admiration, good wishes. I appreciate them very much, they have moved me, they have moved me, especially in this important stage of my life, ”the Colombian journalist began by saying in the video.
As if it were a self-interview, she asked herselfsomething that of course his followers want to know: “Why didn’t you want to keep hosting the news?”
“The truth is that family reasons are due to my husband and son live in Atlanta, my daughter lives in Los Angeles, and I live in Miami. My switch to Univision meant that I moved to Miami and I couldn’t convince my husband to come with me, to move too. We had been going back and forth between Miami and Atlanta for 5 years, this was already unsustainable, this distance relationship, this long distance relationship was very difficultJaniot explained.
And incidentally, he clarified that when he referred to ‘going home’, it was not about returning to his country of birth, Colombia, or that he had any project there.
Regarding his future work, he also reconfirmed his desire not to return to the news format, saying the following: “The truth is that I want to take a break to be able to develop some personal projects in which I have been working and I hope to do so in the coming weeks, in the coming months and to be able to announce them in this way”, he confirmed.
