An award-winning Afro-Latina anchor is set to moderate the second Republican presidential debate.
Columbian journalist Ilia Calderón of Univision will join Fox anchors Stuart Varney and Dana Perino as a moderator on Sept. 27, Fox News reported.
The immigrant anchor also speaks about the opportunity that led her to become the first Afro-Latina anchor for a major Hispanic news network in the U.S. Calderón book summary says a “twist of fate presented her the opportunity of a lifetime at Telemundo in Miami, she was excited to start a new life and identity, in the United States, where racial boundaries, she believed, had long since dissolved and equality was the rule.”
The Emmy Award-winning Afro-Latina anchors Univision’s national evening newscast, “Noticiero Univision,” alongside Jorge Ramos.
