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.

In early February, the networks officially announced that ABC’s Jim Avila would be Fusion’s first White House correspondent.

A week later, Univision signed Dr. Juan José Rivera as chief medical correspondent, saying he would appear regularly on Fusion.

So far, no other announcements have been made with regards to who will be the on-air talent for the new network.

Here’s an English-language commentary by León recorded last year for Univision News:

    So he knows how to read a teleprompter. I’m not impressed. Too much blabla bla very little susbstance. Ramos and Krauze get a talk show and all of the sudden it’s OK to be opinionated…. and then they go back to the news anchoe desk the next day as if nothing ever happened…

    he says he understands an issue but finds it hard to believe… then, he doesn’t understand it very well…
