New College of Florida Alum, Jose Diaz-Balart, Named Anchor of Saturday Edition of ‘NBC Nightly News’

Variety, July 13, 2016
Jose Diaz-Balart, the veteran Telemundo and MSNBC anchor, will take the reins of the Saturday-evening edition of “NBC Nightly News,” NBC News said Wednesday.
Balart will continue to anchor his Telemundo programs, “Noticiero Telemundo” on weeknights and “Enfoque con José Díaz-Balart” on Sunday mornings,  but will cede his anchoring duties on MSNBC to NBC News correspondent Craig Melvin. Diaz-Balart will start his new duties officially August 6, ending NBC’s use of a rotation of hosts since Lester Holt moved from anchoring “Nightly” on weekends to the weekday editions. Diaz-Balart has been a member of that group, which has also included Kristen Welker and Thomas Roberts.
