After a 10-year run as weeknight anchor of Univision’s KMEX 34 in Los Angeles, León Krauze is making the move to network news.
Univision announced today Krauze will co-anchor its late night “Noticiero Univision Edición Nocturna,” alongside Patricia Janiot, starting January 24, 2022.
Upon his departure, Andrea González, 6 and 11 pm co-anchor will continue solo until the station names Krauze’s replacement.*
Over the course of his L.A. tenure, Krauze has worked outside the confines for the local station. He had a short-lived English-language talk show on the now defunct Fusion cable network and has written for various publications, including Foreign Affairs, The New Republic, Foreign Policy, Newsweek, Los Angeles Times, El País, Letras Libres, The Daily Beast and The New Yorker.
In addition to hosting “Epicentro,” a weekly news podcast for Univision News, he’s currently a weekly columnist for Mexico’s El Universal and for The Washington Post‘s Global Opinions section.
Prior to joining Univision, he worked in print, radio and television in his native Mexico, including Foro TV, Televisa’s 24/7 news network.
