Fusion Kicks Off With Interview With President Obama


Well, that's one way to start things off.

Fusion, the new cable tv and digital network targeted at millennials, will kick off on Monday with an exclusive interview with President Obama. Fusion is the product of a collaboration between ABC and Spanish language media company Univision Communications Inc. looking to appeal to a younger generation than its cable news competitors. Monday marks the launch of the network nationwide.

Fusion White House correspondent and ABC News senior national correspondent Jim Avila will conduct the interview with Obama, which will then be featured on the first episode of "AMERICA with Jorge Ramos.” Ramos, an Emmy award winning journalist and Univision News anchor, criticized Obama in September for failing to give an interview about the Syria conflict to any Spanish-language network.

Ramos will then sit down with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for his own one-on-one interview. Grammy winning performer Enrique Iglesias is also set to appear during the show's debut.
