Isaac Lee

Lee recently added the entertainment division to his workload, but he still oversees Univision’s news, digital content, and Fusion Media Group. While recognizing improvement with diversity in the industry, he says it’s still behind where it should be. “The area that is most desperately in need of real diversity is in news. The news on cable is incredibly white and male, with very little room for alternative voices that provide real diverse opinions,” Lee says. He cites Fusion’s “The Chris Gethard Show” and “The Democracy Handbook” as programs that embrace diversity. “Bassem Youssef brings a fresh outsider’s perspective to American politics at a time where Muslim voices are woefully absent. Muslims in the United States have never been more under threat, yet they have very few real voices on cable.”
