Edna Schmidt was born on August 8, 1969, she has been the news anchor for Noticiero Univision Edición Nocturna.
The journalist, who is of Puerto Rican descent, covered the September 11, 2001, World Trade Center attacks, the panic caused by the anthrax threat and the execution of the Oklahoma bomber Timothy McVeigh.
Schmidt lived in Chicago for 10 years before she was offered the position of anchorwoman in Telefutura, a division of Univision Communications, Inc., the leading Spanish-language media company in the U.S.
In April 2002, Schmidt accepted the offer and together with her husband moved to Miami, Florida where Telefutura has its headquarters.
She was the inaugural anchor of “Noticias al Minuto” until 2009, when she was promoted to Noticiero Univision: Fin de Semana. Among the important events which Schmidt has covered are the September 11, 2001, World Trade Center attacks, the panic caused by the Anthrax threat and the execution of the Oklahoma bomber Timothy McVeigh.
Edna Schmidt returned to Univision Chicago on November 3, the programme she ran was a 5-part series with a half-hour Saturday special about women and alcoholism, and Edna was the centrepiece.
She was the founding anchor of Univision Chicago’s newscast, shared her story about her own struggles with alcohol on “Mi Verdad: Edna Schmidt.”
Alcohol addiction cost Edna her journalism career. She lost her job as a Univision network anchor and last year, at Telemundo Chicago, where she lasted less than 3 months.
“The series is to raise awareness about the issue,” says WGBO news director Teri Arvesu. “It’s a chance to empower women who are going through this. We wanted this not to be an exploitation of one person’s story, but to bring light to a real problem.”
Arvesu says that’s why the station partnered with Alcoholics Anonymous to man a hotline with Spanish-speaking staffers each day the series airs.
