    Great news and opportunity for a great professional and human being. I had the pleasure of working with Juli and the other great journalists of KVEA, and I have nothing but praise for him. It is always nice to see talented and caring people to move up and grow. Congrats, Julio. We will watch you!

    Very talented, but he is better reporting on the ground than reading the prompter (and he is good at it)
    ….

    My question is why the network wasted good time with that colombian diva named velez?
