Rosa Laura Junco
CEO & Co-Founder, The Knife Media
Rosa Laura Junco is co-founder and CEO of The Knife Media, a groundbreaking digital news platform that aims to bring ethical standards to the news industry. She oversees a team of writers and analysts who produce domestic and international news without spin and use the company’s proprietary rating system to assess bias in traditional media outlets. Prior to her work at The Knife Media, Rosa Laura was on community editorial boards and the executive board of her family’s Grupo Reforma, which is the largest print media company in Mexico. She witnessed Reforma help the country transition from more than 70 years of rule under one party to a democracy with freedom of speech and public access to information. When she relocated to the U.S., Rosa Laura Junco found an increasingly biased and polarized media environment. She harnessed her experience in Mexico to co-develop The Knife Media as a way to bring more objectivity and critical thinking to the industry in the U.S. Rosa Laura holds a degree in international relations from Tecnológico de Monterrey.
