Giovani “Gio” Benitez is ready to walk the (night)line…
The 29-year-old Latino television correspondent will host Nightline on Fusion, Fusion’s one-hour weekly edition of ABC News’ Nightline.
Co-hosted by Fusion’s Kimberly Brooks, the network’s edition will feature contributions from additional ABC News and Fusion talent. Nightline on Fusion will include stories from the late-night program — the ones that “resonate with Fusion’s young, diverse millennial audience” — as well as original content produced for Fusion, that network said.
Fusion will begin broadcasting its weekly edition on February 18 at 8:00 pm ET.
Fusion was launched as a joint venture between Univision Communications Inc. and the Disney/ABC Television Network on October 28, 2013.
Benitez serves as a correspondent for ABC News, appearing on Good Morning America, World News Tonight, 20/20 and Nightline.
He has won two television news Emmy awards.
