We are happy to highlight their work which represents the very best in news reporting.”
Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas are longtime co-anchors of Univision’s evening newscast “Noticiero Univision” and pioneers of Spanish-language broadcasting in the U.S. Ramos has been called “the Walter Cronkite of Hispanic news,” and the New York Times has called Salinas “the voice of Hispanic America.” As co–anchors of “Noticiero Univision” they reach 96 percent of Hispanic Americans living in the United States averaging nearly two million viewers every night. Ramos and Salinas have produced distinguished coverage of major news events in the last quarter century, from the fall of the Berlin Wall to 9/11 to the Iraq War and Hurricane Katrina. In 2007 Ramos and Salinas made history by co-hosting the first ever Democratic and Republican presidential candidate forums in Spanish on the Univision Network.
