Since joining Noticias Telemundo in 2015, Smyth has held numerous roles. She anchored the 11:30 pm newscast and co-hosted the news magazine Al Rojo Vivo. Formerly she served as the New York correspondent for the national news network. Smyth began her career as a local anchor in Telemundo’s station in Arizona.
