Univision’s ‘Cristina’ daily yakker will end

Show shutters in December, 'Edicion Especial' to continue

MIAMI — Cristina Saralegui is ending her daily talker “El Show de Cristina” after a 12-year run on U.S. Spanish-lingo net Univision.

Show will air for the last time in December. Saralegui will keep her Monday one-hour 10 p.m. timeslot for “Cristina: Edicion Especial,” which will be renamed “Cristina.”

“Univision is giving us a bigger budget for that show, and we’re very happy about that,” said “Cristina” executive producer Marcos Avila, who is also Saralegui’s business partner and husband.

The weekly program will use the existing “Cristina” set and maintain its mix of talk and variety content, taped before a live audience, he said.

“We are going to go after exclusive interviews, and our cameras will be traveling — we’ll do more man-on-the-street and B-roll,” Avila said.

Saralegui will also have time to pursue other projects, Avila said, in addition to running Cristina Saralegui Enterprises, which includes monthly magazine Cristina, a Web site and studios in Miami.

CSE has also inked a deal with Whoopi Goldberg’s production company to develop a film about the life of Cuban salsa superstar Celia Cruz.

“Our company is doing the research on that now, and we’ll be pitching to the studios next year,” Avila said.
