León Krauze, main anchor for KMEX-34 in Los Angeles, is the first Univision on-air talent to land a show on Fusion, the Univision/ABC joint venture scheduled to launch at the end of the summer.
No details have yet been offered about the new cable network’s programming grid, but sources reveal producers are currently developing a “talk and interview” program for León and they’ll soon be posting some material on the ABC-Univision website.
