Canseco’s participation in the program, which will begin on September 9, is a return to television after working for years hosting Univision’s morning show Despierta America.

Canseco, who hosted the program with Fernando Arau and Neida Sandoval, was on Despierta America for 13 years, until October 21, 2010. She and her co-hosts were all affected by the payroll cuts carried out by the network.

“I am so happy to be back on television in my new home, Telemundo, and to be part of the mornings of our audience that has followed me for so long and has shown me lots of love,” said Canseco in a press release.

“I love to be part of this great team and share the screen with my new colleagues … (and providing) Latinos (with) happiness, good entertainment and fun,” she said.

Un Nuevo Dia fills a three-hour slot from Monday through Friday providing general news, as well as news about entertainment, health, fashion and beauty, along with a good dose of humor.

Canseco joins the current team of presenters made up of Adamari Lopez, Rashel Diaz, Omar Germenos, Daniel Sarcos, Azucena Cierco, Alessandra Villegas, Chef James and Ramon Zayas.
