Ramos, who came to the United States as a student in 1983, became a national news anchor in 1986 at age 28, one of the youngest in the history of American television. Salinas began her journalism career in 1981 in her native Los Angeles at KMEX 34, now a Univision affiliate and became a "Noticiero Univision" anchor in 1987, becoming one of the first women in the U.S. to co-anchor a national nightly newscast.
