Journalist and TV talk show Cristina Saralegui is the Spanish equivalent to Oprah Winfrey. Leaving her position after 10 years as editor-in-chief of Hearst Cosmepolitan-en- Espanol, Saralegui joined Univision as host and executive producer of “El Show de Cristina” in 1989. An immediate success, Saralegui’s show received an Emmy in 1991 and prompted her to launch a lifestyle magazine, a radio show and the English version of her Spanish talk show, making her the first person to host a TV talk show in two languages. Commenting on her goals, she said, “We do the show to help Hispanics here. Once you cross the border you are an immigrant, not a tourist. This is where our kids grow up and we have to be concerned about our community.”
