My relationship with the Hispanic media started in 1995, as a member of a group of journalists that broadcasted news to Latin America through Telenoticias, a venture that combined investments from Reuters, Telemundo, Grupo Clarín and Atena 3; and that later became CBS Telenoticias and Telemundo International1.
That was the beginning of my immersion and acculturation into the values of journalism in a democracy where freedom of expression prevails. It was also the catalyst for my connections with journalists from all over Latin America and Hispanics born in the United States with strong ties to their Latin roots. This experience was my key to understanding this fascinating phenomenon called the Hispanic media.
Working in Latin American broadcasting based in the United States, I understood the challenging situation in which Hispanic journalist live, having to be experts in both the United States and the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America.
