Rosa Laura Junco
The Future of Real News
CEO and co-developer of The Knife Media
Rosa Laura Junco is CEO of The Knife Media, a digital platform that offers news without spin and rates media outlets for their level of objectivity and bias. She oversees all divisions of the company, including editorial, technology and marketing.
Before co-developing The Knife, Junco served on the executive board and community editorial boards of Grupo Reforma, the largest print media company in Latin America. Born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico, Rosa Laura Junco witnessed Reforma’s newspapers become a key player in the fight for freedom of speech, democratic elections, and access to public information in her country. In the process, she developed a keen sense of the power media has to craft the community it serves, and the responsibility this entails.
