Miami – Noticias Telemundo announced the addition of award-winning Mexican journalist Paulina Sodi as news anchor of its morning show, “Un Nuevo Día.” For Sodi, the position represents a move up to the national stage after four years as anchor and reporter for Noticiero Telemundo Houston. Sodi replaces Vanessa Hauc, who will be turning her attention full time on investigative journalism work as Noticias Telemundo Senior Correspondent.

Until last week, Paulina Sodi was a news anchor and reporter at Telemundo Houston. Before that, she was part of the Proyecto 40 news team at Mexico’s TV Azteca, where she anchored the Informativo 40 Primera Edición, Informativo 40 Domingo and Informativo 40 Tarde newscasts and produced a number of documentaries and special reports, including “Un cachito de suerte, Lotería Nacional” (2012), “Las Mujeres de Ejército” (2011) and “La Ciudad de Agua” (2010).
