Jorge Ramos: Our Walter Cronkite

Our first Hispanic Heritage Month feature is Jorge Ramos. He is journalism ROYALTY. The Mexican journalist became famous and interviewed some of the world’s top leaders while on Univision’s evening news (which I grew up watching). He continues to be a part of important conversations with important people.

He has also been named one of Time Magazine’s ‘Most Influential People.’ Jorge Ramos has become a passionate advocate and voice for the immigrant and Hispanic community in the U.S. He has legend status in my book. He has lost his neutrality over the years, which has been slightly disappointing from a journalism angle, but he always uses his voice to talk about the things that really matter— which I admire.

He is someone who I looked up to very much in my childhood and was an inspiration while I studied journalism.
