This article is about the Mexican news anchor. For the New York—based journalist, see Jorge L. Ramos.

Jorge Ramos (born March 17, 1958) is a Mexican-born naturalized American anchor for Noticiero Univision.Jorge Ramos has won eight Emmy Awards and the Maria Moors Cabot Award for excellence in journalism. He has been the anchorman for Univision News for the last twenty-one years and has appeared on NBC's Today, CNN's Talk Back Live, ABC's Nightline, CBS's Early Show, and Fox News's The O'Reilly Factor, among others. He is the bestselling author of No Borders: A Journalist's Search for Home and Dying to Cross. He lives in Florida.

Ramos joined Univision, Telemundo, Fox Sports, ESPN Deportes, and many others in 1985. He has interviewed multiple world leaders including Fidel Castro, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Hugo Chávez, Terry Porter, Rafael Correa, Fernando Ferrer, Barack Obama, Joe Biden and many others.

Ramos started working at a radio station in Mexico City. However, he left his country (Mexico) when the biggest Mexican television network censored a report he had made. Looking for another job and a different life, he decided to immigrate to the United States.

He came to the United States with a student visa in 1983. The first job he took was waiting tables. Finally, in 1984, he received the opportunity to join an affiliate of Univision in Los Angeles. Two years later, he became the morning host for the show "Mundo Latino".

He became one of the youngest national anchormen in the history of American television at the age of 28, in November 1986. Since this happened, he has been called the "voice of the voiceless" for other immigrants such as himself.

Ramos attended the Universidad Iberoamericana in México City where he majored in Communication. He then received his Master's degree in International Studies from the University of Miami.

He works alongside Univision colleagues María Elena Salinas and Enrique Gratas.

On February 21, 2008, he represented Univision in a Democratic debate between Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama on The University of Texas at Austin campus.

The February 23, 2008 telecast of Saturday Night Live featured Will Forte impersonating Ramos in a Hillary Clinton/Barack Obama debate sketch, in which he is portrayed as an "Obama Stalker".

He appeared on the Comedy Central show Colbert Report on August 11, 2008.
