Five years after being received with mariachis by María Celeste Arrarás, Rodner Figueroa is out of ‘Al Rojo Vivo’ and Telemundo at the beginning of what would be a great wave of layoffs within said chain.
This Thursday, On November 17, Rodner was informed that he was ending his cycle within Telemundo where in addition to being part of ‘Al Rojo Vivo’ in various areas, and with various responsibilities, he also had his own show ‘El Colador’ which lasted only weeks due to lack of rating.
In addition to Figueroa, several producers would have also been fired not only from ‘Al Rojo Vivo’ but also from other shows such as ‘En Casa con Telemundo’ and it would only be at the beginning, well tomorrow it could be what is called in the entertainment industry a ‘black friday’which is when there are several casualties on the same day.
Why Rodner’s departure? It was an almost announced end, There has been talk for a long time that in the renewal that the chain wants to do, the fashionista and journalist was one that they would not count on in this new stage.a. For several reasons, one would be that his salary was high compared to what they would now be looking for in their budgetand that is not related to the rating results. The other is that the public would not be supporting him as they thought they would when they hired him..
An example of this was the show that the chain gave him together with Alyín Mujica, ‘El Colador’, which lasted only 7 weeks. In fact it was canceled almost without anyone noticing and without any kind of announcement.
During these 5 years within Telemundo, Rodner was also in charge of the network’s awards carpets, as well as some special shows.
We communicated with both Rodner Figueroa and Telemundo to have an official version, Although so far we have not received a response from the Venezuelan fashionista, yesí the chain confirmed the dismissal in this way:
“Rodner Figueroa, entertainment reporter for ‘Al Rojo Vivo’, will no longer be part of Telemundo’s afternoon program. During his career at Telemundo, Rodner participated in multiple special programs and live events, bringing his unique entertainment perspective and expertise to all of his reporting. We are very grateful for the dedication and professionalism that he always brought to his projects in the chain. and we wish him great success in the next stage of his successful career.”
