Earlier this year Bárbara Bermudo was surprisingly axed from Univision and her show "Primer Impacto" when her contract was not renewed. The reason for the abrupt departure form the Spanish-language network is not known yet, now the Puerto Rican journalist is being recognized for her work on the hard news show as she scored a nomination at the Daytime Emmy Awards 2017.

Bárbara Bermudo is nominated in the Outstanding Daytime Talent in a Spanish Language Program category for her work. She will be competing with Jackeline Cacho (Jackeline Cacho presenta Triunfo Latino) from Vme Tv, Tanya Charry from "El Gordo y La Flaca" on Univision, Camilo Egaña from "Encuentro" on CNN en Español and Gaby Natale from "SuperLatina with Gaby Natale" on Vme TV. 

Bermudo's nod for the show and network she doesn't work for anymore comes as a surprise. The former tv host took to Instagram to thank the organizers for considering her for the honor. "I feel honored and blessed for this new nomination to the most prestigious award in U.S. television," she wrote."God knows how to spoil those that love and trust HIM." We hope that Bárbara attends the gala and she wins as it would be a nod to her work over all those years on the network.

In the Outstanding Morning Program in Spanish the following shows are nominated: "Café CNN" from CNN en Español, "Despierta América" from Univision and "Un Nuevo Día" from Telemundo. In the Outstanding Entertainment Program in Spanish the following score nods: "El Gordo y La Flaca" from Univision, "Destinos" from CNN en Español, "LAnzate" from Univision, "SuperLatina with Gaby Natale" from Vme TV and "Jackeline Cacho Presenta Triunfo Latino" from Vme TV.
