Quoting “unnamed sources,” the New York Post this week reported former Mexican president Vicente Fox is being considered for the top post at Univision, as the network readies to change hands in April.
What a golden opportunity for Hispanic media journalists! A Univision under Fox will give us writing material for generations to come. Unlike publicity-shy Jerry Perenchio and his lieutenants, Mr. Fox will surely exploit his status as a media mogul to come out and speak his mind like never before.
Press reports say Univision’s new owners are looking for a high-status bilingual executive with close ties to Mexico. So there you go: Mr. Fox has definitely a “high-status” (not to mention he stands six feet four inches tall); he is -of course- bilingual and nobody can dispute his close ties to Mexico. So please, Mr. Saban, do us a favor: make Fox your CEO and give us some entertainment for the years to come.
