The actress, presenter and singer arrived at SBT in 2007 to command the “Animated Saturday” and since March 2019 was at the head of the “Programa da Maisa”. Now without ties to the station, the teenager will make special appearances in programs like “Teleton”. “The decision was made on account of new personal and professional projects that Maisa wants to do “, explained SBT in a note. “This change came from this discomfort inside me, something that said that I should take a step further and get out of my comfort zone […] I started to have proposals for other projects that I also wanted “, completed the artist thanking the owner. “Silvio Santos did so many things for me that you have no idea (…).helped to ensure that we did not fall into any pranks, any bad contracts that could harm me in the future “, he exalted.
Journalist Roberto Cabrini was dismissed from SBT after 11 years
