During a career that has spanned nearly 40 years, Juan Gonzalez has emerged as one of the country’s best-known Latino journalists. He was a staff columnist for New York’s Daily News from 1987 to 2016 and has been a co-host for more than two decades of Democracy Now, a daily morning news show that airs on more than 1,300 community and public radio and television stations across the US and Latin America.

"Juan Gonzalez was terrific. He was very personable and friendly. He connected well with both students and faculty. He touched on relevant and pressing social issues. The history of race in the media was the primary topic, but he answered a lot of the students’ questions on a range of issues such as the current political campaign, the Puerto Rican debt crisis, the CIA's involvement in destabilizing overthrowing democratically elected governments in Central and Latin American, the Black Lives Matter movement, etc. Juan also stayed a little longer than his planned schedule. We are grateful for his time with us."
