Special Guests 2014
Geraldo Rivera is currently the host of “Geraldo at Large” on Fox News Channel (FNC), which is also nationally syndicated by Twentieth Television. Rivera recently celebrated 40 years in journalism.
Rivera joined FNC as a war correspondent in November 2001. In this capacity, he was immediately stationed in Afghanistan to cover Operation Enduring Freedom and later in Bethlehem to cover the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He also covered the Iraqi elections from Baghdad.
Prior to joining Fox News, Rivera served as host of CNBC’s number-one rated prime time show, “Rivera Live,” where his critically-acclaimed coverage of the O.J. Simpson civil trial verdict set an all-time CNBC ratings record.
Rivera is a graduate of the University of Arizona and Brooklyn Law School and is the author of seven books.
An investigator of Puerto Rican history, a national motivator — that’s how Jesús Omar Rivera, best known as “El Boricuazo” describes himself. A figure who has dedicated his career to exalt his country’s contributions to the world, as well as to “cucar” (encourage) his compatriots to learn their history and Caribbean culture.
“I’m like a detective, I’ve been searching for information to demonstrate that Puerto Ricans are highlighted in all human interest topics globally,” said the speaker who offers workshops across the globe. “Puerto Ricans inside and outside of the U.S. like to know about their achievements, they are thirsty to learn about their origins.”
Rivera’s Borincano pride was born at a young age, but it wasn’t until he began his own research center that he managed to fulfill his intense desire of learning more about what he calls “his nation” and to educate others about national pride.
Today he travels to share his message, and a couple of years ago he published his first book, “Boricuazo: Your National Pride”, where he compiled glorious success stories that make Puerto Rican’s hearts swell with emotion.
