[OP-ED]: A familiar voice with an all-too-familiar story

 04/06/2017 - 11:02

Tras ascender superando dificultades en los años 70 y 80 -cuando la frase ‘reportero de televisión’ conjuraba imágenes de Mike Wallace y Harry Reasoner y no la de un muchacho puertorriqueño de Brooklyn- este veterano de 60 años es simplemente la norma a la que muchos jóvenes periodistas latinos aún aspiran. youtube.com

Ray Suarez is a real newsman. Having come up the hard way in the 1970s and ‘80s -- when the phrase “television newscaster” conjured up images of Mike Wallace or Harry Reasoner and not a Puerto Rican kid from Brooklyn -- this 60-year-old veterano is simply the standard to which many young Latino journalists still aspire. Photo: youtube.com
