NEW YORK (AP) - The television talk show host known as the Spanish Oprah is calling it quits, just like her namesake.

The Univision network said Thursday “El Show de Cristina” will end after 20 years in November.

The Cristina Saralegui (sahr-uh-LEH’-gee) show has featured the Latino community’s biggest stars and does topical programs. That’s much like Oprah Winfrey’s show, which is ending next year after 25 seasons.

“Cristina” had been a daily program but recently became a weekly show on Univision, the nation’s top-rated Spanish-language network. Univision says Saralegui will host specials for it in the future.

Saralegui calls it a “bittersweet moment” in ending her show. But she says she’s looking forward to the next phase of her career.
