Gerson Borrero is a journalist, radio host, and TV political commentator. Among other posts, he has been editor-at-large of City & State NY and editor-in-chief of El Diario/La Prensa, the largest Spanish-language newspaper in New York City.
His coverage has ranged from New York City politics, cultural reviews and personality profiles, to the Somos El Futuro Conference and the Puerto Rican Day Parade.
In addition to his print reporting, Borrero has been a New York City radio host for over two decades. He currently appears on the popular TV news show Political Rundown on New York 1, with Errol Louis and WABC Radio’s Curtis Sliwa.
Borrero was born in 1950 in Ponce, Puerto Rico, and came to New York City at age 4.
He and his brother were raised by their single mother, Noelia Maldonado, who worked at a jewelry factory and sold Avon and home cleaning products.
Growing up in the Bronx, Borrero was argumentative in school. He disagreed with his teachers frequently and vehemently. To this day, Borrero “wonders how he managed to get good grades.”
Borrero’s “notorious candor” got him in trouble with an elementary schoolteacher. The teacher pulled his ears and dug her nails into them, which prompted Borrero to throw a milk tray at her. At this point, Borrero’s mother sent him back to Puerto Rico for a few years.
In 1980, Borrero was a co-founder of the “Committee Against Fort Apache,” which protested against the negative imagery and racial stereotyping of the movie Fort Apache, the Bronx.
On another occasion, Borrero led a protest when Madonna rubbed a Puerto Rican flag between her legs.
Borrero helped found the Institute for Puerto Rican Policy. He later opened a public relations firm, and helped Rep. Nydia Velazquez in her initial, and successful, run for US Congress.
His journalism career started when a friend asked him to deliver occasional commentaries for a local Spanish-language TV station, and he discovered that “there was a market for his belligerence.” In 1995, Borrero began writing full-time for El Diario/La Prensa, the largest Spanish-language newspaper in New York City.
Borrero’s journalism has covered a broad spectrum of New York City life: particularly in the areas of government and politics, media, popular culture, and Latino and immigration issues. As editor-at-large of City & State NY, Borrero researched and interviewed New York’s top political leaders and influencers. He also serves on City & State’s editorial board, and leads their feature coverage of the annual Somos El Futuro legislative conference.
In 1996 he landed a column which name is Bajo Fuego (“Under Fire”) in El Diario/La Prensa. In announcing this new column, El Diario publisher Rossana Rosado declared that Borrero understood the city in a way that the paper’s Latin America-trained reporters did not.
For nineteen years, from 1995 through 2014, Bajo Fuego was published thrice weekly in El Diario/La Prensa. The column won several awards for its in-depth research, and its unique perspective on Latino life in New York.
For three years, from 2000 through 2003, Borrero also served as editor-in-chief of El Diario.
Borrero’s Bajo Fuego column caught the attention of Radio WADO’s management in New York City. They gave Borrero a sprawling three hours-per day, five days per week, talk show. New Yorkers enjoyed his brash, dramatic style of reporting and interviewing – and according to Arbitron ratings, the show’s audience grew to 165,000 a week. “He’s a very popular guy. He could make you, and he could break you,” said New York State Senator Rubén Díaz Sr., who is also the father of Bronx Borough President Rubén Díaz Jr.
The show ran until 2001, and Borrero continued as a radio broadcaster for over twenty years.
