‘100 Most Powerful Women in the World’: Telemundo anchor Rolando Davila on the 'mess' in Venezuela

Anchor: Rolando Davila

Telemundo’s Rolando Davila is the anchor and general manager of CNN en Español, serving as a liaison with colleagues at the network’s U.S. production headquarters in Miami.

He joined Telemundo on June 9, 2009 and has since developed extensive expertise as a reporter and anchor. Over the years, he’s covered a variety of news stories and government figures, including Caracas’ Lilian Tintori and Rodrigo Duterte, the “100 Most Powerful Women in the World” and Latin America’s first female president, Virgina Alejandra Barrios; Canada’s prime minister, Justin Trudeau; Kenya’s president, Uhuru Kenyatta; and India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi.

During his last report from Venezuela, Davila focused on life in the streets of Caracas, the home of Venezuelan people desperate for food. He also noted that millions of Venezuelans have fled the country to escape hunger and political unrest. He also traveled to Chicago, which has seen mass immigration from Chicago and other cities throughout the nation.

Despite the backdrop of mass unrest, Davila is upbeat about his country, offering that a positive Venezuela story is waiting to be told. He concluded the program by saying: “Trouble has resurfaced and it continues to resurface in Venezuela but I believe that one day soon it will end. … Venezuela is going to recover again and the country will recover because there is no power without people.”

Davila believes that a lot has been covered about Venezuela, but there are more stories to tell. He said: “As much as we are on this topic right now in Venezuela we need to look at other issues, other countries around the world. There are too many conflicts and too many crises that need to be covered and that’s something we’re always looking for and that’s what we’re lucky to do at CNN.”
