Back in the early day, as #NoticieroUnivision #ExecutiveProducer, working with high-caliber crossover superstar news personality extraordinaire @MariaESalinas and Emmy award-winning director #KathyPerez @_tvgirl2 now making #ESPN look good, I asked Andres, who was then our sportswriter-producer to anchor the @Univision #Deportes segment broadcast from Laguna, California. The rest is history, @AndresCantorGOL became an overnight sensation and a star was born.
