    Boris Sanchez is so professional good looking and stands so proud. Got my attention when i first heard him report the news. As a gay man myself the 2nd thing I notices was his looks and then there the last name. Latino. When mr. Sanchez reports his voice demands attention you have to look up at the television his looks keeps you listen. I realize we don’t listen with our eyes but Mr. Sanchez is the exception. It’s a total pleasure to be able to see another smart well educated Latino that our children can be exposed to more roll models like mr Sanchez need to be exposed. Mr. Sanchez I thank you for your service at CNN and I make sure that my grandsons follow you and they take note. Keep up the excellent work.
