Mariana Sanchez, a former news anchor for Panamericana Television,
ATV and stringer for the Los Angeles Times in Peru, has freelanced extensively
for many international news organisations, including The Wall Street Journal
Americas, CNN Espanol, UNIVISION and Agence France Presse, among others.
In a statement issued, Washington DC bureau chief Will Stebbins said, In
English language broadcasting, there is no more experienced journalist in Latin
America than Lucia Newman, which is why we are overjoyed that she has agreed to
come on board.
As for Mariana Sanchez, she has a unique
perspective that is both local and international, gained from news anchoring in
her native Peru, and covering major events from Kosovo to East Timor, which makes
her the perfect candidate for the way in which we plan to cover Latin America,
