Luis Dávila Colón

Luis Dávila Colón

'Luis Dávila Colón is one of Puerto Rico's best-known political analysts, radio commentators and newspaper columnist. His daily radio talk show, broadcast from 4:30 to 7:00 pm by the Notiuno radio network and his twice-weekly column in El Vocero daily newspaper, where he serves as an editorial consultant, guarantees a wide audience for his political analyses. Since 1988, he has run WKAQ-TV Telemundo's political broadcasts during the election year and has been the principal analyst during election night coverage.

An attorney, Dávila Colón is of counsel at the Castellanos & Castellanos law firm in San Juan and Washington, DC. He has associated with economist Carlos Colón De Armas to provide political and economic strategic analysis to corporate clients.

Shortly after obtaining his B.A. cum laude from Marquette University in 1974 and his J.D. at the University of Puerto Rico Law School, where he served as Associate Editor of the UPR Law Review from 1976 to 1977, he was the editor of Breakthrough from Colonialism, An Interdisciplinary Study of Statehood, published by the UPR Press and considered by Library of Congress experts as the definitive study on the statehood admissions process in the United States. The multi-year multi-disciplinary research project that preceded publication involved a dozen talented young professionals who went on to assume roles in government, the judiciary and the private sector, including Appellate Court Judge Nélida Jiménez and former Corrections Administrator Zulma Rosario. Dávila Colón supports statehood for Puerto Rico.

Since publishing that book, he has authored nearly a dozen additional books, many of which have held the number one spot in the best-seller lists for the Puerto Rico market. One recent example is "Justicia Roja", an exposé of Puerto Rico's judicial and prosecutorial systems, which has sold 15,000 copies in the limited Puerto Rico bookselling market.

Dávila was also the Vice President and News Director of WSJN Channel 24, in the late 1980s, the only all-news TV station in Puerto Rico's broadcast history.
