LA Observed's Kevin Roderick reports:

The onetime rising star at Telemundo whose career burned up in the wreckage of an affair with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has taken the familiar post-TV route -- AM radio. [Today]'s edition of Hoy will report, in Spanish, that [Mirthala] Salinas is now a co-anchor of "Hoy por Hoy" on 690 XTRA AM in Los Angeles. The shows airs Monday through Friday.

Salinas quit her job at Telemundo after the station exiled her to a distant, far-flung bureau, in what was largely seen as a demotion. She and the mayor are reportedly no longer a couple.
