Fusion Boss Highlights ‘Exceptional’ Week for New Network

abc_fusion_logo_130508The 4-month-old cable network Fusion is taking a victory lap following coverage of two major stories in Latin America: the chaos in Venezuela and the capture of the world’s most wanted drug lord. Fusion CEO Isaac Lee , who is also president of Univision News, praised the partnerships with the channel’s parents, ABC News and Univision, while taking a jab at the competition.

“With few national outlets covering the story from the streets of Caracas, Fusion filled a void for many,” Lee writes in a note to staff, obtained by TVNewser.

Lee also notes that Fusion “tapped into the global resources of ABC News to cover the unrest in Ukraine,” while at the same time helping ABC News cover the events in Caracas. Fusion anchor, and Venezuela native, Mariana Atencio reported for “ABC World News” last night. And when the news broke Saturday that Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán was captured, Fusion’s Mariana van Zeller, who reported a documentary on the drug lord, appeared on “World News,” “GMA,” and “This Week.”

Fusion Unveils Logo, Adds Former Current TV ‘Vanguard’ Correspondent

The ABC News/Univision cable news channel Fusion continues to hire staff and now has a logo for its Fall launch.

The network says the new logo (at left) “is a powerful representation of Fusion’s identity.” It was developed by LA-based design firm Buster in collaboration with Lubin Lawrence and the team at Fusion.

Fusion also announced that investigative journalist Mariana van Zeller will be joining the channel as a correspondent.

van Zeller is best-known for her work on the critically-acclaimed Current TV series “Vanguard,” which continues to be one of the channel’s highest-rated shows. That is despite the fact that “Vanguard” was scaled back and eventually canceled when the channel moved to left-wing political talk shows back in 2011.

van Zeller was most recently a correspondent for National Geographic Channel and will be based in Los Angeles.
