Tips From the Pros: Jose Diaz-Balart

Kid Reporter interviews Telemundo News Network anchor at Education Nation

By Fred Hechinger | November 10 , 2011

Fred Hechinger sat down with Jose Diaz-Balart, Telemundo anchorman, to discuss his life as a reporter and coverage of Education Nation. Jose Diaz-Balart is one of the biggest names in Latino journalism. He has his own show on Telemundo,  and made history as the first Cuban-American to host American network news program.

He discussed the importance of covering education, as well as the importance of covering politics. Along with that he told Fred about the hardest stories to report on, and the stories that Hispanic and Latino audiences are interested in. He also gave tips in reporting for young people.
