Enrique Gratas is an award winning journalist and the former anchor of Univision's Ultima Hora (Last Hour), the second most popular Spanish newscast in the United States. Gratas was fired in March 2009 along with 300 other Univision employees. Univision blames it on the global financial crisis, some of his viewers have accused Univision of discrimination because Gratas was over 64 years old and was replaced by a recently hired younger news anchor. Univision has not admitted to any wrong doing.
Gratas started working in Argentina as a radio speaker in 1966 and moved to television news a year later. He moved to the United States in 1971 and worked as a correspondent for the Argentine television.
In 1990 he moved to Miami where Executive Producer Fran Mires brought him in to anchor Telemundo's flagship show, the network's first daily investigative news magazine Ocurrio asi ("It happened like this"). When Gratas left Telemundo Network in 1999, Pedro Sevcec took over the show.
