After almost two months since Bárbara Bermudo was axed from "Primer Impacto," Univision has finally named Michelle Galván as her replacement. Galván will be joining Pamela Silva Conde on Monday, March 13 at 5pm ET/PT.

Galván comes to “Primer Impacto” from Univision Houston’s television station where she anchored the 5pm and 10pm newscasts and served as Special Segments Reporter since 2012. 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.
