MEXICO CITY — A woman has become anchor of Mexico’s most important television news program for the first time.
Denise Maerker debuted in the Televisa network’s key 10 p.m. newscast Monday Aug. 22 — becoming just the program’s third anchor in the past 45 years.
Maerker is a political scientist by training and had a weekly investigative and news analysis show on Televisa. The country’s dominant network has often been criticized as being close to the government, especially the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party.
Women have anchored other Televisa news programs, but not the spotlight 10 p.m. show.
On Monday Aug. 22, the 30-minute show opened with a segment on the start of a new school year. Maerker said she identified with the students just starting anew.
