I was brought up and taught to treat everyone the same way they treat me, therefore I dedicate my entry to this special date in history.

I'm lucky and truly blessed to live in a gorgeous place. I call City Island - A Slice of NYC Paradise, but I was born on another island.

Kudos to Minnie Miñoso, a pioneer Cuban in the Negro League. He played seasons with the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox.

CUBA Seguro Qué Si

The Cuban people have been oppressed for six decades by the totalitarian Castro regime and will say Basta and Libertad.

Fidel Castro died five years ago this week, but his menacing shadow and his legacy of oppressing the Cuban people continues.

Those national planned mass protest is demanding their freedom and an end to the communist dictatorship in the Caribbean island.

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

I’m the unicorn journalist with wings and a cyclops eye. I have been affected by multiple news stories, starting with Fidel Castro’s Cuban Communist Revolution in the ’60s, when I became a political refugee after coming to America.  

RIP Gustavo Godoy

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.

Our Wedding Pledge

Eight years ago we were married on City Island - A Slice of New York City Paradise. A year earlier I asked Yirong to marry me at the local NYC beach during the annual July Fourth Fireworks celebrations and extravaganza.

There is no way to predict wether the Cuban protesters will eventually prevail against repression, but their courage is commendable.

I served as the first GM-15/10 Director Office of Cuba Broadcasting for TV Marti under President George HW Bush. I have never ever seen anything like these protests by the Cuban people that are being carried out all over the Caribbean island.
