Univision’s award-winning newsmagazine “Primer Impacto” (First Impact) welcomes a new co-host: Michelle Galván will join Pamela Silva Conde at the anchor desk of the top-rated program beginning Monday, March 13, 2017. “Primer Impacto” airs Monday through Friday at 5:00 p.m. ET/PT, 4:00 p.m. CT on Univision Network.
Galván comes to “Primer Impacto” from Univision Houston’s television station where she anchored the 5:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. newscasts and served as Special Segments Reporter since 2012. During the November 2016 and the January 2017 sweeps, Univision Houston delivered the No. 1 early local newscast in the Houston area among Adults 18-49 and Adults 18-34. Galván’s investigative reporting for the station earned her three Emmy Awards and six Emmy nominations between 2013 and 2016.
Prior to joining Univision Houston, Galván presented the international news segment for “Primero Noticias,” a daily morning news program from Mexico’s Televisa Network, and previously served as Anchor on Foro TV, a cable news network also owned by Televisa. She began her uninterrupted and highly successful career in broadcast journalism at TV Azteca in Monterrey, Mexico, from where she advanced to ESPN Latino and later to Televisa.
Galván graduated from Universidad TecMilenio in Monterrey, part of the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education, with a degree in Marketing. She also holds certificates in Journalism from the same university.
“Primer Impacto” made its debut in 1994 and has since maintained its place among Univision’s highest rated programs. It is also recipient of some of the media industry’s most prestigious honors, including dozens of Emmy Awards and an Edward R. Murrow Award.
