Fusion, the TV network born from the marriage of Spanish language network Univision and ABC, is a year old.

Fusion is unique in a few ways. It’s in English, and it caters to millennials, particularly Latino millennials. It’s been attracting big media talent, including Alexis Madrigal, deputy editor of The Atlantic, who joined earlier this month.

The network has also attracted journalists from Jezebel, The Daily Beast, and Reuters.

NPR Media Correspondent David Folkenflik talks to Here & Nows Jeremy Hobson about whether Fusion has accomplished its goals of being relevant to millennials – and being funny.
