REQUEST A SPEAKER

León Krauze is a multi-award winning Mexican journalist and writer, expert in international politics, with special knowledge of the American and Latin American reality, and specialist in immigration issues.

He began his career as a sports journalist, focusing on soccer. That passion led him to become not only an expert and official chronicler of the Mexico national team but also a highly regarded historian: he has written four books and eighty documentaries on the history of “fútbol” in Mexico.

Since 1997, Krauze has covered politics in the United States, for both American and Mexican media outlets. In 2005 he published “La Casa Dividida,” an account of the first five years of the Bush presidency. Krauze has interviewed leading political figures such as Juan Manuel Santos, Nick Clegg, Felipe Calderón, Enrique Peña Nieto, Shimon Peres, and Barack Obama.

His work has been published in Foreign Affairs, The New Republic, Foreign Policy, Newsweek, Los Angeles Times, El País, and Letras Libres. Currently, he is a contributor at The Daily Beast, a weekly columnist for Mexico’s El Universal, and hosts the Gabfest en Español podcast for Slate. As of 2016 he has been a professor of journalism at the USC Annenberg School.

For five years, Krauze hosted “Segunda Emisión”, Mexico’s highest rated afternoon radio newsmagazine. Upon moving to television, Krauze quickly became a success as well, anchoring “Hora 21”, the main newscast for Foro TV, Televisa’s 24/7 news network. Krauze is currently the main anchor at Univision’s Los Angeles station, KMEX. He’s also a regular at Fusion, where he hosted the show "Open Source".
