During the past week ABC News coverage of two key events has benefited from extensive reporting done by its sister network Fusion – the ongoing deadly protests in Venezuela and the capture of Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.  Segments of Fusion’s original documentary “El Chapo: CEO of Crime” aired on several ABC broadcasts and Fusion’s Chief Investigative Reporter Mariana van Zeller contributed to ABC News’ coverage throughout the weekend appearing on “World News,” “Good Morning America,” and “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.” With young Venezuelans taking to the streets to protest the administration of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, Fusion anchor Mariana Atencio, who spent the past week reporting from Caracas, reported for “World News with David Muir” and contributed to ABC News Digital coverage last week. In addition, Fusion’s coverage of both stories was featured across ABC’s digital platforms including the homepage of ABCNews.com.

Conversely, Fusion leveraged the global resources of ABC News to cover the unrest in Kiev, Ukraine.  ABC News Chief Foreign Correspondent Terry Moran appeared last week on Fusion’s “AMERICA with Jorge Ramos.”

Fusion launched last fall as a joint venture between ABC News, a division of the Disney/ABC Television Group, and Univision Communications Inc.  For more information about Fusion visit fusion.net or follow the network on Twitter @ThisIsFusion and facebook.com/FusionNetwork.
