 John Quiñones Biography

John Quiones is the Emmy Award-winning co-anchor of ABC's "Primetime" and has been with the network nearly 30 years. He is the sole anchor of the Primetime series "What Would You Do?," one of the highest rated newsmagazine franchises in recent years. During his tenure, he has reported extensively for ABC News, predominantly serving as a correspondent for "Primetime" and "20/20."

In 2010, Quiones was the first reporter out of the 2,000 journalists who covered the Chilean Mining Disaster to get an exclusive interview with one of the survivors. His work for "What Would You Do?" captures the way people react when confronted with dilemmas that compel them to either take action or walk away. To that end, he has extensively covered a religious sect in Northern Arizona that forces its young female members to take part in polygamous marriages and followed a group of would-be Mexican immigrants as they attempted to cross into the US via the treacherous route known as "The Devil's Highway," among many other endeavors.

Previously, Quiones anchored the critically acclaimed ABC News special "Latin Beat," which focused on the wave of Latin talent sweeping the US, the impact of the recent population explosion, and how it will affect the nation as a whole.

Having grown up in a poor family of migrant workers to eventually become ABC's first Latino correspondent and a seven-time Emmy Award winner, Quiones shares his powerful story with audiences around the country, encouraging them to pursue their dreams regardless of socioeconomic barriers. He particularly emphasizes the role education played in his success in his captivating and inspiring keynotes.

He's been honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Hispanic Media Coalition and Guerra Lifetime Achievement Award from the San Antonio Association of Hispanic Journalists.
