When you launch a new project, the learning curve is steep.
Alicia Menendez knows this first hand.
3 months ago, she had her first night as Fusion’s evening news anchor.
Fusion is an news, pop culture and satire TV network aimed at English-speaking millennials, including those of a Hispanic background.
Alicia Menendez Tonight employs a sassy, irreverent tone to cover the news stories not traditionally covered in evening broadcasts.
“My generation is really redefining what we mean by news,” says Menendez, “We mean news, the headlines but also news in the context of conversations that we’re having every day.”
She talks to Latino USA host Maria Hinojosa about how Fusion is trying to reach the millennial audience and about the lessons she’s learned 90 days into her tenure.
