For many years, Walter Cronkite was America’s favorite, and most trusted, television news anchor. Today, there’s a man known as the Walter Cronkite of Latino Americans
His name is Jorge Ramos, and he has been anchoring the news on Univision since 1987.
After his 50th birthday, when he realized that he had spent exactly half of his life in his native Mexico and half in the United States, Ramos became a US citizen..
But as he explained in his 2002 autobiography, No Borders, Ramos never felt completely at home in either country.
And that conversation that we had about his book more than 20 years ago seems as relevant today as it did then .
So here now, from 2002, Jorge Ramos.
Jorge Ramos is 65. He’s been Univision anchor since 1987. He lives in Miami.
