When he was 39 years old, Sal Morales got pinked-slipped from his dream job. He loved his job as anchorman at a Spanish-language station in Los Angeles, but when he lost his job he felt like his life turned upside down. He moved back to his hometown of Miami to start over. Eventually, Sal realized journalism wasn’t dead—just different. Sal tells us his personal journey of learning to land on his feet.
