To follow the developments and do your part to support them and help spread the word to the world. #15NCuba #SOSCuba #15N

I met Gustavo Godoy when he was anchoring Noticiero SIN with Teresa Abate in Miami when I had been hired as executive producer.

Gus and Tere were a likable and extremely capable Cuban anchor team, but as TV demographics continued to evolve, they made room for Maria Elena Salinas and Jorge Ramos, younger Mexican news anchors that ultimately catapulted Univision into a television news powerhouse.
