Cristina Navarrete has been named weekend news anchor for Telemundo 47 New York (WNJU).

She has been filling in as weekend anchor since May after Rosarina Breton was named weekday news anchor and reporter. Navarrete will continue to work as a weekday general assignment reporter in addition to her new, full-time weekend anchor duties.

“Cristina is a first-class journalist who has earned the trust and admiration of our viewers over the past six years,” said Freddy Oldenburg, Telemundo 47 vice president of news. “She is incredibly hard-working, always professional and has done a terrific job filling-in at the anchor desk. We are thrilled to promote from within and elevate Cristina into this full-time anchor role.”


Navarrete joined the station in 2016. Fully bi-lingual in English and Spanish, Navarrete previously worked as reporter, producer and fill-in anchor for Telemundo Wisconsin and WDJT in Milwaukee. She has also served as a reporter with SoiTV and with Radio Cosmos-Universidad Autonoma de Mexico based in Chicago.
