The Emmy Award-winning journalist and on-air talent at Univision Network in Miami has been named co-anchor of the late evening edition of its national newscast, “Noticiero Univision Edición Nocturna.”

Elon alumna Maity Interiano ’07, an Emmy Award-winning journalist and on-air talent at Univision Network in Miami, has been named co-anchor of the late evening edition of its national newscast, “Noticiero Univision Edición Nocturna,” which airs coast to coast on Univision, Monday through Friday at 11:35 p.m. EST. Interiano made her debut in the weekday co-anchor chair alongside Leon Krauze on February 13, 2023.

This is the second promotion at the network in the past year for Interiano. In February 2022, the Elon School of Communications graduate was named co-anchor of the weekend evening edition of the network’s newscast, “Noticiero Univision Fin De Semana.”

“We are excited to see Maity Interiano’s continued growth by joining the weekly late evening edition of our national newscast, ‘Noticiero Univision Edición Nocturna,’” said Leopoldo Gomez, president of Univision News. “She is an incredibly accomplished, award-winning journalist whose talent, skill and passion can be seen through her work for the Spanish-speaking audience. Noticias Univision serves in order to advance our mission of informing and empowering the Hispanic community.”

“Anchoring Noticiero Univision is a dream come true and big responsibility to continue to serve the Hispanic community,” Interiano said. “I am honored and grateful to be the first Honduran, and Central American, journalist to anchor Noticiero Univisión.”

Univision News is the award-winning news division of TelevisaUnivision, the leading Spanish-language media and content company in the U.S. and the most trusted source of news for Hispanics in the U.S.

Previously, Interiano served as a reporter, correspondent and host of Univision’s flagship daytime Emmy Award-winning show “Despierta América,” “UNews,” and “Noticiero Univision Edición Digital.” In addition, Interiano has frequently been a Univision correspondent for a variety of events, including “Premios Juventud,” “Premio lo Nuestro,” the “Latin GRAMMY” awards, “Nuestra Belleza Latina,” the Golden Globes, the Oscars and Rose Parade among many others.

As one of Univision’s lead correspondents, Interiano has covered some of the world’s biggest news stories, including the migrant caravans reaching the U.S.-Mexico border and the resulting humanitarian crisis. Her versatility has allowed her to cover a wide range of events, from the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil to the royal wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from London and the canonization of Saint Mother Teresa in Rome. In 2022, Interiano flew to London to cover the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.

Interiano studied broadcast communications at Elon and credits her faculty mentors and engaged learning experiences in the School of Communications with helping to prepare her for success. After graduating in 2007, she returned to her alma mater to deliver Elon’s commencement address in 2017. She also received Elon’s Top 10 Under 10 Award in 2012, and the Distinguished Alumni Award and School of Communications’ Outstanding Alumni Award in 2021.

Interiano serves on Elon’s School of Communications advisory board and during 2022 served as one of four alumni co-chairs of the successful Elon LEADS Campaign, which concluded on December 31, 2022, raising a record $260 million.

One of Elon’s most engaged graduates, Interiano has been a loyal donor to her alma mater, making generous gifts to support Elon’s Greatest Needs, the Latinx/Hispanic Alumni Network, Phoenix Club and School of Communications.

Last year, she established The Maity Interiano Annual Scholarship, with first preference given to Hispanic/Latinx students studying in the School of Communications. She is also a member of the President’s Young Leaders Council and returns to campus to mentor students in the School of Communications.

Beyond her work in journalism, Interiano also serves the Hispanic community by working with the Amor y Vida Foundation, which offers comprehensive care to young children and teenagers affected by HIV/AIDS in her native Honduras. She also participates in the annual Teletón México and Teletón U.S.A. fundraising events.
