This Thursday it was announced that the experienced journalist Jorge Ramos will premiere a new program within the new ViX streaming platform, from the TelevisaUnivision alliance. To everyone’s surprise, this new project will not be in the format that Ramos is historically known for, but now the interviewees will be artists and not politicians.
According to information from journalist Ana Mengotti of EFE, the first season will feature interviews with renowned writers Isabel Allende and Mario Vargas Llosa, actors such as Eugenio Derbez, different singers such as Joan Manuel Serrat, Yuri, Carlos Vives, Alejandro Sanz, Maná or Sebastián Yatra, and even the soccer player Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernández.
Ramos has had multiple controversial moments when conducting an interview with an important politician. In recent years, he has had his confrontations with characters like Donald Trump during a campaign event for the former president of the United States. He ended up being expelled after questioning the anti-immigrant rhetoric.
Likewise, he went through a complicated situation with the president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, who ordered him and his team to be held in the country to later be deported to US soil without the material from an interview they had conducted.

‘Something personal with Jorge Ramos’ is the name given to the new and different program by the Mexican journalist after a long career in the media and different projects with Univision on North American soil. Precisely because of this and because it is directed to a streaming platform, the concept and the idea is different.
Here is a preview of some of the interviews for the new program “Algo Personal”. You can watch it for free in any country through the ViX streaming platform. It’s one of the most intense and interesting things I’ve done in my career. Check it out 😎 pic.twitter.com/OmT9ecnRGM

Ramos will not be inside a television studio or in a hotel room during the development of the material, but a more relaxed, calm, light side will be shown and without the tension of the most important issues for the world. Now he will be seen from a theater or a residence as in the case of the actor Eugenio Derbez.
Jorge Ramos commented, “I’m not used to asking someone if they’re in love. I’m ashamed to get into the private lives of public figures, it’s something that doesn’t work out for me”. The program will premiere next Sunday, April 24 within ViX for the entire United States and Latin America.
