Ramos has spoken highly of Fusion’s potential, telling CNN’s Brian Stelter in September that the media company was “a bridge to the future.”
“In 2016, no one is going to be able to make it to the White House without Fusion or Univision,” Ramos said last week, speaking to the networks´ reach to Latino audiences.
In the Time 100 piece about Ramos, the anchor received glowing words from fellow journalist Christiane Amanpour of CNN.
“He says he asks every question as if it’s his last, determined to get an answer or go down trying,” Amanpour wrote. “He knows he has a voice and is not afraid to use it.”
Ramos is considered by many in the media landscape to be one of the most influential journalists heading into the 2016 presidential election.
Univision and Fusion have worked hard to promote Ramos, and his inclusion in the Time 100 is a boost for both networks.
“With another presidential election coming up, if anyone can move this needle, Jorge Ramos can—and he must,” Amanpour added.
