NYSUT celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month with a new poster honoring Jorge Ramos, a Mexican-American journalist and author. Known as “The Walter Cronkite of Latin America,” he is the best-known Spanish-language news anchor in the United States.
Based in Miami, Florida, Ramos anchors the Univision news television program Noticiero Univision; the Univision Sunday morning political news program Al Punto; and the Fusion TV English language program America with Jorge Ramos. He has covered five wars and events ranging from the fall of the Berlin Wall to the war in Afghanistan.
Over the course of his career, Ramos interviewed several world leaders including Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H. W. Bush, Fidel Castro, Daniel Ortega and Hugo Chávez. The recipient of 10 Emmy Awards and the Maria Moors Cabot Prize for excellence in journalism, in 2015 Ramos was named one of “The World’s 100 Most Influential People.” Ramos is also the author of 13 books including, Dying to Cross and his autobiography, No Borders: A Journalist’s Search for Home.
The poster is available for download in English-language and Spanish-language versions; limited quantities are free for NYSUT members and leaders at the statewide union’s online publications ordering catalog, nysut.org/publications.
