For more information contact the Center's Southern Regional office at 1.800.262.1627.


About Mario Kreutzberger:


Mario Kreutzberger, who was born into a Chilean-Jewish German family, is
the world renowned and respected television host popularly known by his
stage name, "Don Francisco".  Mario is the host of "Sábado Gigante," one of
the most popular programs in the history of Spanish-language television. In
2001 he launched the weekly talk show "Don Francisco Presenta" on
the Univision Television Network and has conducted interviews with a host
of celebrities and important political figures in recent years such as
Al Gore, John Kerry, George W. Bush, John McCain and Barak Obama.


Mr. Kreutzberger has received numerous national and international
industry awards. In 1992 and again in 2003, the "Guinness Book of
World Records" named "Sábado Gigante" the longest running
 television program in the Americas. In 2009, the show will complete its 47th
year, setting the record as "the longest running television variety program in
the world, created and hosted uninterruptedly by the same host,
Mario Kreutzberger" and was certified and published in the "Guinness Book
of World Records 2007". In 2001, he received a star on the Hollywood Walk
 of Fame and was inducted into the Broadcasting Hall of Fame in 2004.
In 2003, the Chilean government awarded him its prestigious
Gabriela Mistral Order of Merit
 for his contribution to culture and solidarity
in Chile. But to "Don Francisco," the biggest and most satisfying professional
as well as personal accomplishment has been the annual "Teleton" in his
 native Chile, a televised benefit for disabled children that he has produced
and hosted for over 30 years. The organization these funds benefit operates
10 hospitals throughout Chile and provides assistance to more than
76,000 children.


Considered the second most powerful Hispanic by "TV Guide en Español" (November 1999), Kreutzberger has been featured in The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The New York Post, The Washington Times,
The Miami Herald and El Nuevo Herald, among many others. He has
also been featured on many important TV programs including
"Good Morning America," "Nightline," and "Close Up" on the ABC network.


In 2005, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences recognized
Mario Kreutzberger's contributions to the growth of Spanish-language
television in the U.S. by awarding him a special Emmy: "Leader of
Spanish-Language Television."


During the past few years, in addition to his work on television,
Mario Kreutzberger has been dedicated to the production of documentaries. 
He produced and appeared in  "Testigos del Silencio" ("Witnesses of Silence"), a gripping film that documents, in first person, his own experiences during
the  "March for Life", an event hosted by the Jewish community to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Holocaust.   In the film, Kreutzberger pays
special homage to his parents who fled Germany and Nazi persecution to
Chile, survivors of this dramatic chapter in the history of humanity.


Mario has been married to his beautiful wife, Temy Muchnick, for 46 years
and together they have three children, Patricio, Vivian and Francisco. 


The Simon Wiesenthal Center is proud to honor Mario Kreutzberger this
evening as an entertainment industry leader whose commitment to
social responsibility, cultural diversity and philanthropy exemplifies the
essence of the Simon Wiesenthal Legacy Award.
