Why did “Risas y salsa” go off the air?
In May 1999, when “Risas y salsa” had been on the air for almost 20 years, the general manager of channel 5, Federico Anchorena, and Efraín Aguilar (producer and general director of the program since 1997, replacing Guillermo Guille) organized a conference of press to reveal to the whole of Peru that the episode broadcast on Saturday, May 22, would be the last.
They argued that the reason for this terrible news was due to an entirely financial issue, since the channel was going through a crisis that prevented it from covering production costs. This monetary problem also affected programs such as “TV rosa” and “Los Hincha pelotas”, a humorous sports show.
Although this is the official version, many believe that the closure of the program was also due to the change in casting that took place in the early 1990s, since the stars of the show Adolfo Chuiman, Elmer Alfaro, Rodolfo Carrión and Raúl Beryón withdrew from “Risas y salsa” to start a television project with channel 4.
