"How to Ask Tough Questions; What I Learned in 30 Years of Interviews”
Jorge Ramos (Fusion)
Jorge Ramos, the influential Univision anchor and author, talked to students on November 3, 2015, about a career founded on asking tough questions to shed light on critical topics in the public interest.
Ramos has been called "Star newscaster of Hispanic TV" and "Hispanic TV's No. 1 correspondent and key to a huge voting bloc" by The Wall Street Journal. Time Magazine put him on one of the covers for its “100 most influential people in the world” (2015 issue) and on the list of “the 25 most influential Hispanics in the United States."
He is the anchor for “America with Jorge Ramos” for the network Fusion (a joint venture between ABC News and Univision). Ramos has been the anchorman for Noticiero Univision since 1986. In addition Ramos also hosts “Al Punto," Univision’s weekly public affairs program offering in-depth analysis of the week’s top-stories and exclusive interviews with newsmakers.
Ramos holds a Bachelor’s degree in communication from the Ibero-American University in México City and has a Master’s degree in International Studies from the University of Miami. The University of Richmond gave him an honorary degree of Doctor of Letters in 2007.
