Programming and promo VP has yet to be replaced

Univision programming and promo veep Ronald Day has ankled just a week before the upfronts.

The Spanish-language web has confirmed that he is no longer with the company but would make no further comments. No replacement has been announced.

Day, who was with Univision for 20 years, replaced outgoing programming VP Otto Padron in March 2010.

Day previously ran Univision’s sister channel, Telefutura, which grew into the No.2 Spanish-language channel in the U.S. Hispanic market.

He’s also credited with spearheading Univision’s non-scripted shows “Mira quien baila (Look Who’s Dancing), “Nuestra belleza Latina” (Our Latin Beauties) and “Sal y pimienta” (Salt and Pepper).

Day was also an executive producer of talk show “Cristina” with host Cristina Saralegui, who has since moved to rival web, Telemundo.

Latest May sweeps reveal that Univision and Telefutura are the only broadcast networks, regardless of language, to post increases among Adults 18-49 and Adults 18-34.
