COSTA RICA EXTRA — The beautiful and talented and one of the top figures in Costa Rican TV news, Glenda Umaña, is leaving the CNN en Español, where she has been since the network created the Spanish language news edition in 1997

Glenda’s departure is part of CNN’s restructuring of the both the English and Spanish editions, a downsizing that resulted in more than 1.000 pink slips.

Glenda-Umana-laboro-CNN-Espanol_LNCIMA20141021_0062_28Before joining CNN en Español in 1997, Umaña worked as a correspondent for CBS TeleNoticias. She began her career at Channel 17 in Costa Rica, working with the country’s first English-language newscast. Umaña then worked for Costa Rica’s Channel 6 (Repretel) before joining Teletica Channel 7, where she anchored the highest-rated newscast in the country for eight years.

While Glenda’s adopted home is in Atlanta, she is regularly invited to events as a speaker, presenter and moderator, both in Costa Rica, as in the rest of Latin America.

As anchor for CNN en Español Glenda presented Nuestro Mundo global news as it happens, where it happens, from Mondays through Fridays. On Mirador Mundial, Umaña  anchored live coverage from Atlanta of the war on terrorism, the allied military offensive in Iraq, Pope John Paul II’s visit to Cuba, the resignation of Paraguayan President Raul Cubas, the Clinton Impeachment trial and presidential elections in Bolivia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay, United States and Venezuela. She has also interviewed Latin American leaders such as Vicente Fox and Hugo Chavez, as well as Nobel Prize laureates Oscar Arias and Rigoberta Menchu.

Glenda has a degree in Journalism from the University of Costa Rica and holds a master’s degree in Communications from Florida International University. She is fluent in Spanish and English.

In Costa Rica, the news surprised many, former co-wokers as well the public in general.
