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.

“What’s better than getting up really early in the morning, and here I am,” Lopez joked at the start of her first appearance on Monday. Her first morning surprise: finding her parents on set to greet her.

In her new role as a television presenter, Lopez is hosting the morning show’s regulars Rashel Diaz, Omar Germenos, Azucena Cierco and Daniel Sarcos.

Lopez has often been covered in the Spanish media because of personal issues like her engagement and subsequent breakup with Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi, her victory on the celebrity dancing competition Mira Quien Baila and her successful bout with cancer.

“How wonderful they made me feel on @UnNuevoDia,” Lopez tweeted after her first day. “Thanks to all my fellow actors and to the production x so much affection. #Happy and grateful.”

Un Nuevo Dia is broadcast on Telemundo every weekday morning Monday through Friday.
