FUSION TV today announced a new series of interview-driven specials helmed by award-winning journalist Jorge Ramos. He has sat face-to-face with world leaders and pop culture icons alike, and now Jorge Ramos has one ask of them: show us something—something they love, something that challenges or defines them—something that we don’t already know. Each installment of ‘Show Me Something’ will take viewers around the world to meet leaders in art, sports, politics and beyond—introducing them to interesting people, in interesting places, doing their best work.
“Jorge is undoubtedly one of the most engaging interviewers of our time,” said Daniel Eilemberg, President of FUSION. “In this new series Jorge is taking viewers on a journey to discover what drives and motivates the influential figures who shape our culture.”
The first installments of ‘Show Me Something’ will air Tuesday, April 25 @ 10PM on FUSION TV (channel listings) and will feature:

Upcoming specials will feature conversations with John Legend and Dr. Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa, better known as Dr. Q, an undocumented immigrant who went on to become the head of brain tumor surgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Dr. Q is now at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville.
This new series of specials builds on the success of Jorge’s 2016 documentary ‘Hate Rising,’ which took an in-depth look at the astonishing, and very concerning, rise of hate in America. Over four months, Jorge traveled to small towns across the nation speaking with neo-Nazis, members of the KKK, and the alt-right. He also heard stories of Muslims and Latinos who have been the victims of hate crimes. The Hollywood Reporter noted the film was ‘highly compelling viewing and demands to be seen’ — something we all agree with. ‘Hate Rising’ was recently honored with an Impact Award from the National Hispanic Media Coalition.
Jorge Ramos, who will receive the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Television Political Journalism later this month, has served as FUSION TV’s chief news anchor since the network launched in 2013.
