Bryan Llenas, a reporter for Fox News Latino and a graduate of the Ailes Apprentice Program, is expanding his role at Fox News. Llenas will be a general assignment reporter for the network.

Llenas joined Fox News Latino in September 2010. He is the first male from the Ailes Apprentice Program, founded by Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes to promote diversity in broadcast journalism, to appear on the air. Llenas graduated from the University of Miami and interned at Fox in 2009.

The conclave to elect the next Pope will begin Tuesday after morning mass. Here’s what the broadcast and cable networks have planned for coverage.

ABC’s Diane Sawyer will broadcast “World News” from the Vatican beginning this evening. Sawyer is joined in Rome by Terry Moran, Josh Elliott, David Wright, Cokie Roberts, Rob Claiborne and Cecilia Vega. The network plans to broadcast special reports for the cardinals’ twice-daily votes.

Both networks will provide special reports for the cardinals votes. Jansing and Holt also led coverage of the last papal conclave in 2005, which Jansing talks about in a lengthy Q&A with Inside Cable News.

On Fox News, Shepard Smith will anchor from Rome. He will be joined by correspondents Amy Kellogg and Lauren Green to cover the conclave. Bryan Llenas will be reporting for Fox News Latino.

Chris Cuomo and Anderson Cooper will lead CNN’s coverage from Rome. Ben Wedeman, Miguel Marquez, Dan Rivers and Becky Anderson will report, along with CNN en Español’s Adriana Hauser and Jose Levy. CNN Vatican analyst John Allen will also contribute to coverage.

Two Ailes Apprentices to Help Cover NABJ for FNC

Arthel Neville is hosting the Opening Ceremony for the National Association of Black Journalists Convention in New Orleans today and she’s bringing along two members of the Ailes Apprentice Program. Apprentices Queenette Karikari and Crystal Berger are helping cover the event for Fox News.

The Ailes Apprentice Program, created by Fox News co-founder and chairman Roger Ailes in 2003, recruits and develops diverse talent at Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network. The 8th class will be graduating this fall bringing the total number of graduates to 34.

Many have gone on to reporting jobs across the country, including Bryan Llenas who is a reporter for Foxnewslatino.com, Tisha Lewis, a reporter at Chicago’s Fox O&O WFLD and Chelsea Washington who reports for WRIC in Richmond, Virginia.

New Class of Ailes Apprentices Graduates

Another class — the seventh — of the Ailes Apprentice Program has commenced. On Wednesday, Bryan Llenas, Amanda Morales, Steven Soto and Georeen Tanner were among the Ailes Apprentices to graduate.

Fox news host Geraldo Rivera, former New York mayor David Dinkins, astronaut-turned-politician Jose Hernandez and benefactor and Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes were all in attendance for the ceremony. Each year, a select group of individuals is chosen for the one-year program. They are mentored by Fox executives and others outside the news business. Upon graduation they are given a certificate, a stipend and, if they’re fortunate enough, a job.
